Specific Guideline Details
- Entry is available to WVAL artists. Entrants may submit up to 4 artworks for this exhibit. The non-refundable application fee is $25. This application and release form must be completed and submitted on entry day. You are invited to bring a one-page bio. Artwork previously exhibited in the WVAL gallery is not eligible. Subject matter should be appropriate for all visitors to the WVAL Gallery which is a family oriented venue housed in the Wimberley Community Center. Therefore no nudes or potentially controversial subjects may be displayed. Please check the Media Guidelines on the label page, for example, acceptable mediums for various art categories.
- Only ORIGINAL works of art, including fine art prints, photographs and digital art signed by the artist will be accepted in shows. We encourage artists to enter recent work, and all entries must have been done entirely by the artist. Reproductions (e.g., Giclées) from paintings and drawings are NOT allowed.
- Because of space limitations, the height plus width plus depth of each entry must total no more than 96 inches. All artwork must be dry. Two-dimensional art should be framed, or unframed with finished edges (no visible staples). Artwork must be ready for hanging on our hanging system with tightly stretched wire securely attached on both sides, down 1/4 of the artwork height measured from the top of the piece. No sawtooth hangers.
- Sales: All artwork must be for sale, and prices may not be changed after entry. Artwork sold will remain in the gallery for the duration of the show. WVAL will collect, report, and pay the sales taxes to the State of Texas. WVAL will retain 30% commission on sales. 70% will be forwarded to the artist at the end of the show. All sales should go through the current WVAL Treasurer. Please check this link for information on the current Treasurer for this year.
- Entry: Entries should be delivered to the Wimberley Community Center, Johnson Hall on the Tuesday prior to the Show Opening on Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Return between 1:00pm and 2:00pm that same Tuesday to pick up unselected entries. Unclaimed artwork will be stored at an outside facility at a cost to the artist of $10 per day, per piece. If an entry is selected, it will remain at the Community Center to be displayed from the November 2 Artists’ Reception through January 8, 2019.
