Instructions for Accepted Entrants
- All work must be ready to hang with hardware and installation instructions included. Work must be framed with plexi rather than glass. Because the gallery walls are plywood-backed drywall, T-pins may not be used to attach artwork to walls.
- Works may be hand-delivered or shipped. Artists are responsible for all shipping charges. Artists who ship their work must utilize sturdy, reusable containers and provide prepaid return labels inside the package upon delivery. Artists are responsible for insuring their work while in transit. No weekend deliveries, please. Artists may use FedEx, UPS, USPS, or an art shipper as a carrier to ship their work.
- After acceptance, artists will sign an exhibition contract with Saint Mary’s College Moreau Gallery. This communication will occur via email with the gallery director, not MAPC. Work cannot be accepted by the mailroom unless the insurance and inventory forms have been submitted to the Gallery Director at least one week before works are scheduled to arrive on campus.
- Work must arrive at Saint Mary’s College Moreau Gallery September 11–18, 2023.
- Artists may not substitute another work for an accepted work, alter a work, nor withdraw a work after it has been accepted. Saint Mary’s College Moreau Gallery reserves the right to refuse any entry which does not match the image submitted or meet the criteria. Saint Mary’s College Moreau Gallery reserves the right to refuse work that is not appropriate for the space.
- Every precaution will be taken to handle artwork with the utmost care. Saint Mary’s College Moreau Gallery will not be responsible for damage or loss from any cause during transportation. Accepted works will be insured for the duration of the exhibition; however, artists are responsible for ensuring their work while in transit.
- Inquiries regarding sales will be referred to the artist.
- Several prizes will be awarded at the reception. Details for the prize amounts and sponsors are forthcoming. Stay tuned to MAPC social media and email communication for details.
