Call For Submissions: Swoon at The Marigold

Call For Submissions:
Swoon at The Marigold Presents:
ArtSquared (working title)

Artists and Craftspeople are invited to submit work for a Swoon Pop-Up at the Marigold Cultural Centre in Truro NS, which will happen in August 2016.

We are looking for everything from painting to sculpture, textiles to jewelry, and everything in between!

Rather than a specific theme, this show will be size based. We will be accepting work which falls under the following categories:

– Work on gallery-stretched canvas or panel, 10″ x 10″ or
20″ x 20″ (no thin stretchers, no frame, just finished edges)

– Work on paper, image size – 10” x 10” with standard frame of 16” x 16” (double white mat with simple black frame)

– 3D work must be square or cube in shape/theme, and be no larger than 20” x 20”

– Jewelry – Square or cube in shape/theme

– Hanging textiles or work, other than painting – 10″ x 10″ or
20″ x 20″

This will be a juried show. The members of the jury will be from diverse fields within the art/craft community and will remain anonymous.

The show will take place in August with dates yet to be finalized.

Individuals can submit up to two pieces.

Remember, the jury only has your image to base its decision on so the quality of your photo is very important. Be sure to attach your image as a jpeg and that it is a large file. Please do not include your name in the file attachment, as we try to keep the artists as anonymous as possible for the jury.

Images for consideration must be emailed to by Friday, July 1. Submissions will be reviewed by the jury, and artists will be notified of the results by email. Artists whose work has been selected will also be notified as to delivery and pick up dates.

Work must have been created within the last year and must not have been previously shown in NS.

Artists should include the size, price and medium of each piece.
Note – Please pay close attention to the framing requirements. Work that is not properly prepared for presentation will not be displayed. If you have any questions about this please ask. This includes being wired and ready to hang.

Artists who submit from away, and have work selected, are responsible for any shipping expenses to and from the gallery, if work does not sell.

Work sold will be on a commission basis at 50/50, with 25% going to the Marigold and 25% to Swoon.

I look forward to seeing your submissions!
