Call for entry!
MGC is having an exchange show with the Umbrella Studio in Townsville, Australia. The shows will be up simultaneously in June 2015. We have been asked to send only 30 works of art, so the call for entries is limited to active members who are currently taking classes or open workshop and to MGC monitors.
Art work must be hand-pulled prints on a quarter sheet of paper (11.5” x 15”).
If we have more than 30 submissions we will have to make a selection. Matthias Kern and Rich Turnbull (the organizers of the show) will act as curators and make the nal selection, if needed…and of course no one should be upset if not selected; we all create beautiful work, but only 30 can go on the journey to “down
under”. You may submit up to three prints, but selected artists will be limited to one piece per artist.
Each selected artist will be asked to pay $35 (in cash) for shipping (which covers both there and back) and perhaps a simple catalogue if conditions allow. Also, each participating artist is required to send us a short bio of 50 words of less. We will keep a “waiting list” of art works in case selected artists fail to send shipping fees and bio in a timely manner.
Work will be securely packaged and send via regular mail. There will be no insurance for the package and we will have to rely on the post oce here and in Australia to deliver the package safely.
Art work needs to be clearly marked with name of the artist, technique, edition, email address, phone number and price (the amount will be converted in Australia into Aus$). If the work should be sold, Umbrella Studio will take a 30% commission. Also, if there is the need for additional copies of any prints (for multiple sales), we will bring the artist into contact with Umbrella Studio and everything can be handled directly with them.
Submission deadline: March 20, 2015 - Shelf 107
Acceptance notication for selected artists: April 1, 2015
Deadline for shipping fees ($35) and short bio: April 10, 2015
Art is planned to go out not later than April 15th, 2015
Art work will be returned by the Umbrella Studio after closing of the show.
