Acworth Arts Alliance Submission Guidelines
Please follow these guidelines when submitting your art for review.
Please submit at least three (5 to 10 for the “Small Works Exhibit”) works for consideration, one image each for two-dimensional work (paintings, photographs, etc.) and no more than three images for each three-dimensional work (sculpture, ceramics, glass, etc.). Include the title, medium used, size (including frame, if framed) and price for each work.
Digital images can be emailed to the gallery director. Please include an artist’s statement, resume or biography.
Even after you are accepted, we reserve the right to decline any work that we feel is not appropriate for our gallery, which includes work that is improperly framed, wired or excessively large or expensive. Solo shows are by invitation only
Exhibit Guidelines if accepted:
All canvas work must either be framed or a one-inch or deeper wrap canvas with painted sides. All two-dimensional original work must be framed (unless gallery wrap), wired, ready to hang, titled along with artists contact information and price. NO "sawtooth" hangers! They don't work with our hanging system.
Prints must be matted, in a protective sleeve, titled along with artists contact information and price. We do not hang giclee prints. Prints will be displayed in a print bin.
Three-dimensional work such as pottery, sculpture, glass, jewelry, etc. must be labeled with title, price and artists name.
Art submissions will be featured in the gallery for the duration of the “Featured Exhibit”.
Member Artist’s who have artwork on display in the “Member Artist Gallery” should exchange artwork during the delivery dates of the upcoming featured exhibits. The size of new pieces should be approved with the Art House Director in advance of the delivery, to assure space is available for that size. Member Artist’s should exchange works in the Member Artist Gallery every 2 to 3 months, to help the Art House maintain a fresh and current display of work.

Maximum size is 16x20 (inclusive of frame, if framed).

Selected entries must have a wire (for hanging) and be ready to hang, (no sawtooth hangers accepted). Please label the back of your artwork with your name, contact information, title, medium and price.
Accepted entries that do not conform to the above may be refused at the time of hanging.
The artwork must be available throughout the entire exhibit. All works of art should be for sale.
