WCAGA is continuing our theme of speaking out in words and visual images the thoughts and ideas that fill our minds. They find a voice in our choice of media and concept: political, personal, biological and/or cultural. Whether our work is created with gentle nuances or bold, aggressive and to the point visuals, our creations are meant “to be read” and one can see the strong connection we have as visual artists with the Decatur Book Festival’s writers, authors and book lovers!

This exhibit is open to all WCAGA in good standing. We have space for 35 works. Work accepted must remain on view for the entire exhibition, August 31 to September 2, 2018. We will be using images of work you submit to promote the upcoming exhibit. The images will be changed out to entice interest in the exhibit.
NOTE: Each artist is welcome to have, on paper, no larger than 4 x 4”, a write up to submit with their work when they drop it off for installation. Your write up can be mounted on cardboard or heavier card stock to allow it to be placed next to your work. It is your “story” about what your chosen work is about.

If you are a member in good standing of WCAGA there is NO FEE for this exhibit. Please indicate whether your work is for sale and give the sale price or if not for sale, NFS. Sycamore Place Gallery and Studios is not taking any percentage of the sales but we are asking for 10% to go to WCAGA. The remaining will go to the artist.

Send up to 3 images by email to Vickie Martin by August 1.

The image will be used for internet purposes only so they can be 72dpi but no larger than 1500x1500 pixels. Only the artwork should be visible, no background, frames, etc. Label each image as follows: number.artistname.jpg, for example, 1.brehg.jpg. The number should correspond to the info on your application.

LIMITATIONS (Please read carefully)
Two dimensional work should not exceed 36 inches in height and width and may be framed or unframed. Works on paper that are framed should include that as part of the size limitation. If work is unframed please specify hanging method. (We are looking for finished look on the unframed work). Canvas wrapped work does not need to have a frame. If an unusual hanging method is required, state clearly how it is to be hung on your application. Installations should have weight added into the information. Sculpture may not exceed 25 lb. Sycamore Place Gallery and Studios has 7 pedestals available for use.

Submitting an entry form constitutes an agreement on the part of the artist with all the conditions in the prospectus.
Sycamore Place Gallery and Studios does not have insurance to cover any damage or theft of artwork. All artists are responsible for insuring their own work.
The artist is responsible for making arrangements for delivery to and pickup from the Sycamore Place Gallery and Studios. If your work will be shipped from out of town please make arrangements with a WCAGA member to receive the work at their studio or home.
Returns via shipping must provide proper packaging and postage or make necessary arrangements with another WCAGA member to pick up work. When you send your application in, please include the following information. This way we’ll have all the information necessary to make labels and lists.
