Eligibility:  This competition is open to any artist in the region.

Awards:  Merit Awards will be presented at the discretion of the jurors.

Specifications and Restrictions:  Work may be two-dimensional or three-dimensional.  The Anne P. Baker Gallery is in a public, multipurpose building.  We ask that discretion be used in submitting your work.  The Glema Center reserves the right to reject work that is deemed inappropriate for a public space.  All work must be original, completed within the last 2 years and not previously entered in the Glema Center Juried Art Exhibit or juried photography exhibit.  Categories for the Juried Art Exhibit include: Painting (Acrylic, Oil, Watercolor), Drawing (Ink/Graphite, Colored Pencil/Pastel), Mixed Media, Fiber Arts, Sculpture, Woodcarving, Pottery / Ceramics, and New Artist (for artists having worked within a medium for less than a year).

Presentation and Framing:  All submitted artwork must be ready to be displayed (wired for hanging), or it will be rejected.  Wrapped canvas need not be framed, but must have a finished edge and be wired for hanging.  Two-dimensional work should be equipped with a secure hanging apparatus.  Three-dimensional work should be self-supporting, on its own stand, or capable of being displayed on a pedestal supplied by the Glema Center.

Entry Information:  A nonrefundable jury fee of $20 will allow the artist to submit one piece.  One additional piece may be submitted for $10.  Once entered, work may not be withdrawn for the duration of the exhibit.  Early removal will result in refusal of work for participation in future GMCA exhibits.

Sales and Commission:  Sales from the exhibition will be encouraged.  The Glema Mahr Center for the Arts will receive a 20% commission on all sales from the exhibit.

Liability and Insurance:  The Glema Mahr Center for the Arts will insure all artwork from the time it is received by the Center until the deadline for the artwork to be picked up.  NO artwork will be insured beyond the pickup deadline.  GMCA will not be responsible for insuring work in transit.  ALL entries MUST have an Insurance Value whether For Sale or Not For Sale.  If insurance value is not listed, the Glema Center will assess the value for insurance purposes.

Agreement:  Submission of a work of art to the exhibition shall be understood to indicate an agreement on the part of the entrant with all conditions set forth, including an agreement to exhibit.

Acceptance of works into the exhibit will be at the discretion of the juror and the Glema Center Director, as will the granting of all cash awards.

  1. It was a nice show, on Saturday, with so much talent on display! I am quite new at this, though, so I was wondering how one person could win for three different pieces? Certainly not taking away from the obvious talent, but I understood the rules as printed “A nonrefundable jury fee of $20 will allow the artist to submit one piece. One additional piece may be submitted for $10”. Did I miss something that allowed artists to submit more than two pieces? As I said, I’m new at this so I don’t know all the ropes – just looking for clarification, thanks!

  2. Steve, thank you for your comment. The juried art and juried photography are treated as two separate exhibits. Two artists entered work in both exhibits. One artist entered 2 digital paintings based on an original photograph in the visual art exhibit. Under the rules as written, this is allowable. I will do further research on the matter but more than likely the rules of entry will be altered next year.
