Del Ray Artisans (DRA) is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Office of the Arts at Alexandria’s Durant Arts Center, located at 1605 Cameron St., to sponsor a new Gallery Without Walls exhibit. This show has no theme, though artists should keep in mind that the center houses many events for children and families.
Donations from sales of artwork will support both DRA and Alexandria's Office of the Arts. We expect to select between 40 and 50 two-dimensional pieces and will be able to showcase up to 10 three-dimensional pieces (depending on size). The artwork will be displayed for three months (note that this includes Alexandria’s First Night celebration when a large number of visitors come to the center).
Art must be submitted digitally for this exhibit. (See instructions below)
Entry to this exhibit is by online submission. Art may be in any medium. No strict size limits, but please be considerate of other artists and the physical limits of the Durant Arts Center before entering oversized pieces. Oversized pieces of merit will be accepted if space permits. Art should be ready to hang with wire and screw eyes for mounting, framed, matted, or with edges finished. We cannot show work that is not ready to hang. An example of a professionally framed artwork is located at the end of this section. If your artwork hanging system varies greatly from the example, contact the curators. See DelRayArtisans.org/art-guidelines for additional details.
Contact the curators if you have questions.
Open to Del Ray Artisans members only.
No entry fee. This is a membership perk.
Artists may submit up to three (3) pieces of artwork. Deadline for online submission of your art is midnight on Monday, November 20, 2017.
You must provide one photo for each entry. Acceptable file types are: pdf, jpg, jpeg, png, and gif; up to 5MB in file size. Smart phone photos are acceptable. You may also choose to provide one additional photograph per entry (not required). You must name your files as follows: "YourLastName-FirstName-Entry1," "YourLastName-FirstName-Entry2", etc. If you provide a second photo for an entry, add a "b" to the end - e.g. "YourLastName-FirstName-Entry1b".
Final acceptance for this exhibit will be at the curators’ discretion upon physically viewing accepted artwork at Artwork Receiving.
All artwork must be for sale. We will not accept pieces marked "NFS."
