Applications are due by November 15, 2020. Jury of Emerging, Visiting and New artists will be completed by November 15th and those artists will be notified. Due to COVID and a desire to remain flexible, we will delay payment due date until January of 2021. Email invoices for participation fees will be sent to all artists at that time. Since some 2020 participants opted to roll their fees to 2021, there will be avariety of payment amounts due for 2021 and this seems like the easiest way to keep it all straight.
Each artist and gallery receive a page on the tour website with site specific information and a slideshow of work, as well as their location shown on our website tour map. Our brochure provides a map of the entire tour, each artist is listed with one photo and location information. Brochures are mailed to approximately 11,000 addresses of past patrons and an additional 5,000 are distributed by participating artists and local businesses, visitor's centers, art festivals, and art organizations. Additionally, the tour is promoted in print ads, TV and radio promotions, local chamber promotions and social media. Each artist is expected to provide a mailing list for the tour mailing and distribute brochures to potential attendees.
Each artist shall provide 6-10 high res. 300dpi photos with a maximum of 1920 px on the longest side. These photos will be used to jury new and emerging artists, for the artist's slideshow on our website, brochure and ad design as well as social media promotions.
Quality photographs are extremely important. The majority of photos should be of artist's current work, however please also include 1-2 photos of the artist working.
Images should be titled with the Gallery name or artist's last name and image number (ex. - Pariseau1). If you have a preference what photo is used for the brochure image, use name & brochure (ex. - PariseauBrochure). If you don't have a preference, our brochure designer will select a photo they feel fits best with the brochure design.
