Details For Our Participating Artists

Below are some general reminders for our artists that will be participating in this year's show.

Participation Details​

  • Artists interested in participating in "Highlight" are required to register - the registration deadline is Friday, April 29th. The registration form can be found at the bottom of this page.

  • Artwork entered in the show must be dropped off on your indicated drop-off date. We are unable to make individual drop-off accommodations - work should not be dropped off with the reception desk.

    • Drop-off dates are Wednesday, May 11th from 5pm-7pm and Saturday, May 14th from 10am-12pm​

  • All artwork must be ready to hang/display - River Tree Arts' guidelines for hanging/displaying artwork can be found below.​

  • River Tree Arts will process all sales, but will not take a percentage of the sale. If an artist’s work sells through the show we encourage, but do not require, a suggested minimum donation of $15. This helps cover payment and processing costs associated with the sale.

  • If a piece sells through the show the artist’s payment will be available for pickup by late June/early July. Artists will be notified at the end of the show regarding the sale status of their piece(s).

  • The Highlight show opening reception is set for Friday, May 27th. 

  • The show runtime will be from May 27th - June 17th. All unsold work will be made available for pickup shortly after the show closes. Exact pickup dates are currently TBD.

  • Participating artist's work will be photographed and images will be used publicity for social media, as well as on the River Tree Arts and River Tree Galleries websites. If a participating artist shared social media and website details that information will also be shared publicly/online (this excludes email and phone numbers).

Hanging Requirements

Our volunteer installation team handles submissions with great care. Please make sure that your work is properly prepared for presentation.

 

  • Art to be hung on the wall must have a hanging system that is in working order: Wire, sawtooth hanging hardware, D-rings, or similar, which is securely anchored into the frame and can handle the weight of the piece. We cannot guarantee the safety of submissions having cardboard backs with a foldable hanging feature, adhesive backed hangers, or any other aspect of the presentation feature which is unstable. If we are unable to safely display a piece it may be excluded from the exhibit. 

  • All artwork must be completely dry and ready prior to drop-off.
     

  • Regarding jewelry, ceramics, sculptures, etc: Our presentation fixtures are limited - artists are welcome to submit their own if they choose. If artists choose to provide a display please ensure it is labeled with your contact details, the title/description of the item it will display, and whether it accompanies the art when sold.

 

  • All works must be labeled on the back, left corner - containing the artist's name, the work's title, media, dimensions and price (price not applicable for fundraiser events).
