Reminders For Our Participating Artists

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

General Reminders

  • Artwork entered in the show must be dropped off on your indicated drop-off date. We are unable to make individual drop-off accommodations.

    • Drop-off dates are Wednesday, May 12th from 6pm-8pm and Saturday, May 15th 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 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 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 28th. The reception will have four 30-minute viewings that required pre-registration to attend. Participating artists that wish to attend the opening reception must also register to attend. 

  • The show runtime will be from May 28th - June 25th. All unsold work will be made available for pickup on Saturday, June 26th and Sunday June 27th from 10am - 1pm on both days.

  • 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).

Ready To Hang/Display Requirements

 

Our volunteer installation team handles submissions with great care, but River Tree Arts will not be responsible for loss or damage from any cause. Please make sure that your work is properly prepared for safe 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. 

  • 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.
