2020 Angels Show CALL TO ARTISTS!

2020 Angels show call to artists

Many thanks to 2019 Angel Artist Katherine Bird for permission to use her angel from the show!

It’s that time again! Time to find your angel art or create something new and submit it in response to the Southern Oregon Artists Resource 8th annual 2020 Angels Show call to artists. Here’s the application form with rules and procedures that you can download and complete, then submit with your angel art at the gallery. Please include  titles, dimensions and medium for each piece.

We don’t ask for traditional representations of angels, though they are welcome. What we’re looking for is unique artistic interpretations of angels. We have seen some amazing interpretations over the years and look forward to seeing yours!

This year we’re changing things up a little for the Angels Show. First, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we do not plan to have a reception. However, the gallery will produce a virtual tour video that we will post widely across our websites and social networks. Second, to keep the works on display to the level that the gallery’s patrons have come to expect, the show is now juried. Finally, due to space limitations and our mutual desire to display every artist’s art without crowding, each artist will have a maximum of two pieces accepted. As always, all angels must remain on display until the show ends.

Here’s how to submit your angels for jurying and a timeline of important phases between now and the show’s opening:

  1. Visit this link to download the form, print and complete.
  2. Include a summary of information about your art with titles, dimensions and medium for each piece.
  3. Bring your angel art to the gallery with your form and summary on November 23, 24 or 25. **Be sure to wear your mask and be prepared to observe social distancing measures while in the gallery. Hand sanitizer is available at the front desk.
  4. Jurying takes place the week following Thanksgiving. Artists are then notified of the status of their work’s acceptance.
  5. Pick up artwork that is not accepted at the gallery on December 4, 5 or 6.
  6. We hang the angels on the back wall of the gallery on December 2.
  7. The show opens Friday, December 4 and continues through Sunday, December 27.
  8. Pick up unsold angels on Monday, December 28.

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.

**IMPORTANT! Please note that the gallery observes mandatory masking and social distancing guidelines. When you come to the gallery to drop off and pick up artwork, you must wear a mask and observe physical distancing of at least 6 feet. Artists manning the gallery are keeping everything clean and safe, and hand sanitizer is available at the front counter.

We are so excited to see the angels that this year’s artists submit! In light of the difficulties this year has presented for all of us, angels are just the thing to wrap up the year. We hope you find comfort and inspiration in creating your angels for this year’s show. Let’s make this is best angels show yet! Thank you so much for answering the 2020 Angels Show Call to Artists!

We seek your INTERPRETATION of angels in your choice of medium and style. You are not limited to the traditional or religious styles commonly seen this time of year. The amazing variety of angels in various mediums, styles and techniques in past shows has drawn many favorable comments from attendees and patrons. We prefer new angels, but gladly invite prior years’ artists and their angels to return.

We have some pedestals to accommodate freestanding 3D angels, but you should be prepared to bring your own. For 2D art, there is a limit of 2 pieces with a maximum dimension of 48 inches each.

Submissions are not technically juried, but we do review and prioritize them in the event we run out of space. If this occurs, new angels will have priority over repeat entries. Painting a new angel for this year’s show? Send us an email to let us know as soon as possible! Please include the approximate dimensions of your piece(s).

Important Dates

  • Entry Deadline:  November 18th.
  • Artwork drop-off dates: November 23, 24 and 25th.
  • We will hang the show on Thursday, December 5th.
  • The show opens on Friday, December 6th.
  • Reception is Saturday, December 7th, from 1–3 pm.
  • Closing date is Sunday, December 29th.

Angels Display

The Angels Show hangs on the back wall of the gallery. It is exhibited alongside the gallery’s popular Holiday Treasures show of gift items. Holiday Treasures always draws a steady stream of holiday shoppers throughout the month. Therefore, the Angels Show is virtually guaranteed a wide audience. Art Presence Art Center is conveniently located at 206 North 5th Street in Jacksonville, Oregon.

Advertising and Promotion

We had wonderful audience reception and respectable sales in 2018, our first show in a true gallery setting. Art Presence and SOAR will promote the exhibition through social media and local print media to ensure another great reception this year. We ask artists to help by sharing their angels on social media with the details of the show and reception.

Submit Your Entries!

Please download and fill out the entry form below. Submit your entry to gallery director Anne Brooke with images of your angel art at anne@brookewatercolor.com. Anne will also be happy to answer any questions not addressed on the form.

Angels Show Call to Artists - Image of painting entitled Christmas in Jacksonville, depitcing a festive herald angel flying over the snow-covered town of Jacksonville, Or, by Katharine Gracey

The Angels show has a new home! After a change in their own art situation, yet with a lingering desire to see this show continue, the GoodBean passed the baton to Art Presence Art Center. 2018 will be the 6th annual exhibition of angel art.

2018 Angels Show Call to Artists

Art Presence, in conjunction with Southern Oregon Artists Resource, announces their 2018 Angels Show call to artists! The call is for angel art to be included in this year’s holiday exhibition, to be exhibited during December 2018.

As with previous shows, we are looking for for artists’ INTERPRETATIONS of angels. We have seen such an amazing variety of angels in past shows, from abstract and impressionist to classical realism and traditional/religious angels. We prefer new angels, but invite prior year’s artists and their angels to return. The gallery has pedestals available, so 3D angels are no longer a display challenge! Show us your freestanding angels as well as 2D wall art in your choice of medium.

Anne will be happy to answer any questions not addressed on the form. Submissions are not technically juried, but they are reviewed to prioritize them in case we run out of space. If you’re okay with us using the image of your angel in promotions for the show, please let us know. Planning to paint an angel to submit? Please notify us in advance so we can plan for space to include your angel in the show.

Details & Show Schedule

  • Submission Deadline: November 12, 2018
  • Artwork Delivery:November 23-25, 11am – 5pm each day.
  • Art Hanging: November 29
  • Show Opens: November 29

  • Art Takedown: December 30
  • All pieces must be for sale and ready to hang, with wire for two dimensional pieces and bases for three dimensional pieces.
