Internet MFA Curve Gallery Call for Artists : Portals

Maryland Federation of Art Annapolis, Maryland, United States

Maryland Federation of Art

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: April 3, 2024 – A portal can be a large entrance, a grand and imposing doorway, or a futuristic passageway to another world. Besides being an opening to new places, portals can also serve as openings to new experiences and sensations.

Maryland Federation of Art (MFA) asks artists to share their interpretations of portals – whether literal or metaphorical, and to share their artistic perspectives and representations of the concept of portals as they see it.

Works selected by the juror will be on display in MFA’s online gallery, Curve Gallery, from June 14 – July 31, 2024.

Entry is open to all artists residing internationally. All original 2D or 3D artwork in any media is eligible for this online show.

Cash awards total $500.

1 or 2 entries $45 (MFA Members $30). Up to 4 additional entries are $6.75 each (MFA Members $4.50). Entry fees are non-refundable.

Visit us online for complete details.

Work must be for sale. MFA’s Online Sales Gallery is provided to North American artists to sell their work. Only artists in the 48 contiguous United States may set a price. MFA will reimburse up to $35 in shipping costs to those artists for online sales shipments if a receipt is provided. All other artists must enter Price on Request (POR) and purchase inquiries will be referred by MFA to the artist.

Artists will retain 80% from sales (85% for MFA Members). MFA will retain 20% commission (15% for MFA Members) on any work sold through MFA. Artists will be responsible for fulfillment of sales.

The MFA incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in 1968 and, through the hard work of a growing and enthusiastic membership, opened the Circle Gallery located at 18 State Circle, just steps away from the State House in Annapolis. The gallery is located in a restored loft space in the heart of the Annapolis Historic District and has been operating continuously since opening its doors. The MFA has also reached out beyond its doors through its Alternate Space efforts, often bringing art to unexpected places.
