Well this is it! It’s officially time to announce our annual open call for submissions! Pre-Shrunk is a much loved annual group show that asks artists to create work on a surface measuring 4” x 5”. We encourage submissions from artists both established and emerging, created in the medium of their choosing.
- Works must be created on a surface that measures 4” x 5”. Pieces that
do not measure 4” x 5” will not be accepted.
- Artists can submit no more than five pieces.
- 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, please mount your works
onto 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.
To apply for this year’s show, please photograph your completed piece/ pieces and send your images in jpeg format to firstname.lastname@example.org. SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS MIDNIGHT, JANUARY 7th If your work is selected by the jury, you will be notified by phone or email the following week.
*Pieces that are selected for this year’s exhibition will be priced at $175 each, with standard 50% commission. Please bare this price in mind while creating your artwork.
*DeSerres and the NSCAD bookstore have kindly ordered pre-made 4” x 5” canvas and board to supply artists wanting to participate in this exhibition. Supplies are limited.
