CALL TO ARTISTS
ART PRESENCE ART CENTER
Answer the 2021 Angels Show Call to Artists and join us for the 9th Annual Angels Show!
Art Presence Art Center again hosts the Southern Oregon Artists Resource Angels Show as their December Guest Exhibit, alongside their well-attended annual Holiday Treasures show. We want to see your artistic interpretation of angels!
Space is limited, so the Angels Show is now juried, with a limit of two pieces per artist accepted. There is a size limit of 48” in any direction. All Angels must be your own original artwork—no giclées, please! All angels must be for sale, with 2D pieces wired and ready to hang and 3D pieces with a base. Paintings can be gallery wrapped or professionally framed. Please include a summary of the pieces you wish to submit, including dimensions, medium, and price. Angels must remain on display until the exhibit ends.
We will hang the angels on Thursday, December 2. The show opens Friday, December 3, and continues on display until Sunday, January 2. Due to COVID, we do not plan to have a reception again this year, but the gallery will shoot a virtual tour of the show. The video will be posted on the Art Presence and Southern Oregon Artists Resource websites and social networks.
Art Presence does not charge a fee for participating but will realize 35% of all sales.
Drop-off of angel artworks takes place from November 29–30 from 1–4 pm each day. Artists will be notified of the status of their art’s acceptance by December 2. Please pick up works that are not accepted December 3–5. While we handle your angels with utmost care, Art Presence is not responsible for loss or damage to artwork.
HANNAH WEST, CURATOR
Traditional representations of angels are welcome, but what we’re really looking for is unique artistic interpretations of angels. We have seen some amazing interpretations over the years and we’re excited to see yours!
We will accept a maximum of two pieces for each artist. Moreover, Angels must remain on display until the show ends. All angel art must be for sale, and Art Presence realizes 35% of sales. There is no additional fee for submitting your art or participation in the show.
Here’s how to submit your angels for jurying and a timeline of important phases between now and the show’s opening:
- Download the form, print and complete.
- Include a summary of information about your art with titles, dimensions and medium for each piece.
- Bring your angel art to the gallery with your form and summary on November 29 or 30. They will then be juried.
- Artists are notified of the status of their work’s acceptance by December 2.
- Pick up artwork that is not accepted at the gallery on December 3, 4 or 5.
- We hang the angels on the back wall of the gallery on December 2.
- The show opens Friday, December 3, and continues through Sunday, January 2.
- Pick up unsold angels on Monday, January 3.
We are so excited to see the angels that this year’s artists submit! Angels are just the thing to wrap up another difficult year and give hope to those who are weary of everything happening around us lately. We hope you find comfort and inspiration in creating your angels for this year’s show and we’re confident that you’ll help us make this is best angels show yet!
