SYNOPSIS
artlessBastard Gallery is calling for 2D and 3D works of art, in all mediums - excluding performance art - for our New Beginnings January 2019 show. 

THEME
January is the start of a New Year. With a New Year comes the idea, thought and resolution to make a change or do something different. We seek to leave the old behind and instead to look forward. We are looking for your interpretation of starting over, letting go of the past, freeing yourself from past failures or disappointments. A New Beginning seeks a fresh look at the future and all the wonderful possibilities it may hold. We can't wait to see your interpretation of this theme!

ACCEPTABLE SIZES
2D WORK: All 2D work must be ready to hand on wire and framed or gallery wrapped canvas, or other mounting method. Size limit on 2D work is no larger then 4ft on any side. 3D WORK: All 3D work must be able to fit through a door frame and any display method that accompanies the work.

SALES
All artwork must be for sale. Artists can determine their own pricing or ask for guidance. Artists receive 70% of the sale, gallery retains 30%.

SUBMISSION FEES
A $20 submission fee will be charged for each piece submitted. Artists may submit up to 6 pieces per exhibition. There are no additional hanging fees/show fees once your artwork is accepted.

DELIVERY/SHIPPING
Artists are responsible for delivering their own work. The gallery will open for special hours for a period of 2 days to accept incoming work. Work that arrives damaged will not be displayed. Artists who are shipping their artwork are responsible for shipping & insurance. If you are shipping you MUST enclose a paid return shipping label or you will be charged for a return shipping fee. Once delivered and hung, works may NOT be withdrawn by the artist before the prior to the end of the show.

Students age 16+ are encouraged to submit their artwork. Students who are able to provide a valid student ID at time of entry recieve a $5 discount off their submission fee. They can submit up to 6 pieces of work at $15 each.

AWARDS
Depending on the size of pieces submitted, between 40- 60 pieces will be included in the exhibit. Best in Show, Best Student Work and Best Overall will be named after the opening night. You will receive additional promotion of your work once the awards are decided.

COMPENSATION FOR WORK SOLD
Within 10 business day of the show closing all payments will be made. We prefer to pay via online but if you prefer a check please let us know. No artist payments will be made in cash or in person or on site.

TAX
All sales tax generated by the sale of the work will be collected by the gallery and paid directly to required government agencies. All artists must be willing to accept 1099's after the calendar year concludes under the category of "1099 Misc. Income" as required by state/fed gov'ts. All artists are responsible for claiming income on their personal or business tax-returns and gallery is not responsible for any artist's failure to do so.

SECURITY/LIABILITY
Although DePere is a safe community with a low crime rate and every effort has been made to ensure the safe display of your artwork, the gallery holds NO responsibillty or liability in the event that work is stolen or damaged by a guest. Individual artwork is NOT insured by the gallery is your responsibility. The artist, not the gallery, assumes all risks when providing artwork for display. By submitting work to be displayed at the gallery, the artist waives their right to seek any loss in the event that work is damaged or stolen.

For artists that shipped their artwork to the gallery a pre-paid RETURN shipping label must be included with their original shipment. If after multiple efforts to contact the artists who's work remains unclaimed and no arrangements have been made within 5 days after show-close then the artwork becomes the property of the gallery and will be moved offsite, donated or sold.
