Acworth Arts Alliance Submission Guidelines
Please follow these guidelines when submitting your art for review.
Please submit at least three 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 be framed or on one-inch 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. Please 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 will not hang giclee prints. They will be displayed in a print bin.
Three-dimensional work such as pottery, sculpture, glass, jewelry, must be labeled with price and artists name and contact info.
Art submissions will be featured in the gallery two to three months. It is the artist’s responsibility to rotate work at the end of the two month period.
