Eligibility

Open to artists around the world 18 years of age or older who submit artwork in any medium except video and wearable art. Submissions must be the creation of the artist.


Images

Artists may choose one of two ways to submit images: (1) upload images using our online form; or (2) send images by email [you may still pay online]. Whatever way is chosen, images should be saved in jpg format and resized. The size of the file should be no more than 1.5 MB and the maximum dimension of the image should be no more (and not much less) than 1000 pixels. Failing to resize images will result in problems with uploading. The file name of your image should follow this convention - last name, title of work (perhaps abbreviated), and number (matching entry form number) [for example, SMITH_SUNNYDAY_3.jpg]. Do not include stray characters such as # or * in the file name. Doing so will prevent the file from uploading properly. Emailed mages should be sent to info@stillpointartgallery.com. Once the submission deadline has passed, no image substitutions may be made.


Entry Application and Fee

Artists are asked to complete an entry form and submit a non-refundable fee of $25 for up to 3 images. Additional images may be submitted for a fee of $5 each, up to a maximum of 8 images at $50. ($25 for 3 images plus $25 for an additional 5 images to reach the maximum of 8 images at $50) If entry form and image submission are completed online, payment may be made online by PayPal or credit card immediately following submission of images. If submission is completed by email, include the following information about each image in the message: title and medium. Please also include name, address, and home or cell number. Payment may be made by requesting a PayPal invoice or by check or money order. Write checks payable to Still Point Art Gallery and mail to 193 Hillside Road, Brunswick ME 04011.


Selection and Awards

No more than thirty (30) artists will be chosen for the exhibition, making selection competitive. Selections will be made by the editorial staff of Still Point Arts Quarterly. All selected images will appear in our online gallery, and at least one of each selected artists' works will be printed in the Winter  2016 issue of Still Point Arts Quarterly.

Five (5) awards will be given:
 

Award for Best in Show (Portfolio - Three or More Images);
Award for Best in Show (Single Image);
Award for Uniqueness of Concept and Originality;
Award for Exceptional Composition and Design;
Award for Distinctive Interpretation of Theme: Solitude.

Each award recipient will be invited to exhibit his or her art for one year as a Gallery Artist; and is invited to submit a portfolio for publication in Still Point Arts Quarterly, which comes with an honorarium of $100 and a free one-year subscription to the Quarterly. Also, the exhibition and its award recipients are promoted on our wesite, blog, and social media posts.


Sales

Still Point Art Gallery does not engage in the selling of art. Artists are encouraged to include a website address on their entry form so interested parties may contact them directly.


Policies

Artists who submit artwork to Still Point Art Gallery should be familiar with the following policies. Also, please be aware that Still Point Art Gallery is exclusively an online gallery.

  • Submissions for exhibitions received after the posted deadline will not be considered.
  • In the case of a submission for which the entry form, entry fee, and images are received separately, every attempt will be made to match the items to the correct artist. If it is not possible to match all items to an artist, the artist's images will not be considered and he or she will forfeit the entry fee.
  • Once the submission deadline has been reached, no image substitutions may be made and no changes in submissions or the price of a work submitted will be permitted.
  • Only artists 18 years of age or older may submit entries to juried exhibitions.
  • All art must be the creation of the artist.
  • The entry fee is non-refundable.
  • All decisions regarding art selected for exhibitions are final.
  • All work must remain on exhibit throughout the entire duration of the exhibition. No early withdrawals will be permitted.
  • The Gallery owner reserves the right to cancel an exhibition, extend deadlines, or change exhibition dates. In the event of an exhibition cancellation, entry fees that have been paid will be refunded.
  • By submitting work to be considered for the exhibition, artists grant the Gallery the right to use their image(s) for the purpose of marketing. Images may appear on the Gallery's website, on social network sites used by the Gallery, and to advertise exhibitions in its publication, Still Point Arts Quarterly.
