Guidelines

 

This exhibition will feature a pairing of work by Glen Echo Park resident artists or faculty members and the student(s) they select to show work alongside them.

 

All current resident artists or faculty members may participate.  Entries will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.  The exhibition is not otherwise juried, however some works may not be displayed due to size, volume and number of pieces received.  The exhibition will be located in the Popcorn Gallery on the first floor of the North Arcade building.  The gallery is open Saturdays and Sundays, noon to 6pm.

 

In order to feature a variety of work please submit according to these guidelines:

 

o   Faculty Members in a 2D Medium: Each faculty member submits one piece and selects one individual student to display one piece of work.  

o   Faculty Members in a 3D Medium:  Each faculty member may submit one piece for display and may select up to three individual students who may each submit one piece of work each.

o   Faculty Members in Jewelry: Each faculty member may submit up to two pieces for display and may select up to five individual students who may each submit one piece of artwork for display. 

o   Artwork must have been recently created (within the last 2 years) in or related to a class at Glen Echo Park.

o   Two-dimensional artwork cannot exceed 24” x 36” framed.

o   An individual student may be selected by more than one instructor as long as their work falls into separate categories above (i.e. – one selection for 2D work, one for 3D work)

o   The Partnership receives a 30% commission on sales from exhibitions.  Student work may be listed as “not for sale” although all artists are strongly encouraged to have their work for sale.  All faculty work must be available for sale.
