CALL FOR ENTRIES Call for entries Art Guild invites all artists, 18 years and older (high school students ages 14-18 years may enter in the student category), to submit artworks for consideration for “Something Blue” a Juried Competition and Exhibition. Is blue the color of the sky or the sea down below? Is it just a feeling or a rhythm to which you tap your toes? Come see for yourself if there’s more to blue than what you know. Show us what makes you BLUE!

ENTRIES Digital submissions of up to three (3) images via email to artshow@TheArtGuild.org or uploaded to our website, should be between 1 and 3MB each, and between 2,000 and 4,000 pixels on their longest side. Please name your ACTUAL IMAGE FILES as follows*:
*Do not use the # or other symbols in the file name.
You MUST change the actual name of the image file. Images CANNOT be named “image.jpg” or “fullrender.jpg” or similar – when multiple people use the same image name, our database overwrites these images.
If you email the images, you must include your name, contact information and the title, medium, value, and size in your email.

SIZE And Framing Size, with frame, must not exceed 36” on the longest side. Work should be cleanly matted and/or framed (if appropriate), wired securely for hanging, with the wire attached via screw eyes or D-rings to the frame, not the backboard.

The Art Guild reserves the right to turn away any artwork that does not comply.

Artists whose work has been selected will be notified after September 20.
