Farmington Libraries Call for Artists

Spring Gallery Show: STRUCTURES

The Farmington Libraries are calling for artists to submit for our spring gallery show, running from May 14 through June 29, 2018. The artists will be recognized at a reception, date TBA.

The theme is ‘STRUCTURES,’ and we will accept all hangable media featuring this theme (e.g. buildings, manmade structures, cityscapes, etc.). To apply, please submit four images and include a list that identifies each image by title, size, medium, and price. Each artist is limited to four pieces; the selection process requires viewing the four items proposed for display. These images can be submitted via email to: lfarrell@farmingtonlibraries.org. Do not send original artwork.

Terms and Conditions for the Sale of Artwork

Checks for purchase of artwork shall be made out to the Farmington Libraries. If the artwork is sold, 20% of the sale price will be donated to the Farmington Libraries and 80% of the sale price will be remitted to the artist by check from the Farmington Libraries. The Farmington Libraries will retain and remit the sales tax. As a not-for-profit organization, the Farmington Libraries provide the artists with an opportunity to exhibit but do not assume the role of agent or representative.
