Call for Submissions 2017 Holiday Show

Radius GalleryMissoula, Montana, United States

Opportunity Description

U.S. National Deadline: September 30, 2017 – Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana, is currently accepting entries for its 4th Annual Holiday Show, to take place Nov 11 – Dec 24, 2017. This is not a holiday-themed show, but is designed to appeal to gift buyers and collectors alike. Salability is important, but not at the expense of quality or creativity.

A new feature of this year’s Holiday Show will be a teapot display! Artists are invited to explore the design and function of this classic vessel. We welcome submissions of both traditional, hand-crafted, usable teapots, as well as more exotic (and perhaps not-so-functional) interpretations of the form.

Open to all artists in the United States and Canada, 18 years of age or older. Artists may submit only their own original artworks.

The exhibition is open to all media. Work must be framed (when applicable) and ready to hang (wire, D-rings or cleat). Work on paper must be covered by glass or Plexiglass with no exposed edges.

Artwork accepted for the exhibit must be for sale. Artists are expected to set the retail prices of their submitted works. Radius Gallery will receive a 50% commission for each work sold from the exhibit.

We encourage artists to submit works that will retail for $500 or less, recognizing that artwork in this price range will often be small or even miniature in dimension. That said, higher-priced work will be considered. Just keep in mind that we intend to promote the show as one featuring high quality, affordable art, and that one of our acceptance criteria is salability.

Each artist can submit up to 5 artworks. Radius Gallery may choose to accept some, none or all of an artist’s entries.

$10 (non-refundable) to submit 1-3 entries
$15 (non-refundable) to submit 4-5 entries
