The South Haven Center for the Arts’ Exhibition Committee invites members to join us in interpreting the theme “Light: Noun, Verb, Adjective.”

 

The exhibition committee looks forward to seeing how you interpret this theme in concept and/or form. We ask you to include a statement with your piece explaining how it relates to the theme.

 

Members may submit two pieces each for this exhibition. For wall hanging pieces, dimensions should be no more than 36”, including the frame. 3D pieces must fit through a standard door.

 

Artwork not meeting these guidelines will not be hung or displayed.

Hand Delivery: Works can be hand-delivered during specified delivery and pick-up times. Work must be labeled with artist name, title, medium, and price. Unsold pieces of art that are not to be return-shipped must be picked up during posted gallery hours on one of the dates below. If the unsold pieces are not retrieved within two weeks of exhibition close, and pick-up arrangements have not been agreed upon, the items will become the property of the South Haven Center for the Arts. Packaging for artwork may be stored at the SHCA and a name label must be put on every piece of packaging to be stored at the art center. Instructions for any special handling or re-packing needs must be included. 

 

Removing artwork: No artwork may be removed by the artist prior to the conclusion of the exhibition. SHCA reserves the right to temporarily remove any piece of work for reasons the organization deems necessary.  

 

 

Installation: Only works appropriately prepared for installation will be accepted. Work must be labeled with artist name, title, medium, and price. 3D works must be stable and pose no physical threat to visitors. No work can be hung from the ceiling. 2D work must be “ready to hang,” including wire. No saw tooth hangers or exposed glass edges allowed. Wire must be at least 2 inches below the top of the frame. Look closely, if your frame is wide, you want to leave enough space for a hanger to fit below the inner edge of the frame so that it will hang appropriately.
