Time to get started on your submissions, Artists!  Our much loved, annual group show Pre-Shrunk is upon us once again, and artists of all disciplines are invited to create artworks that measure 4” x 5” for this juried exhibition. Of course, we encourage submissions from artists both established and emerging, using the medium of their choosing.

   measure 4” x 5” will not be accepted.
- Artists can submit no more than five pieces.
- All work must be unframed
- If works are on canvas, we ask that you do NOT attach a hanging device
  (i.e.: wire or hooks – the gallery will take care of this for continuity)
- If you plan on working on paper or photography, you must mount your works
   on a sturdy 4” x 5” surface that can be hung on the wall.
- Submissions must be new, and not previously shown.
- Please include your name, phone number, email address, and list of   
   materials used along with your submission
