SUBMITTING ARTWORK TO BE JURIED:
Thank you for your interest in showing your work in the Winthrop Gallery. As you know the Gallery is an artist cooperative. There are two categories of artist membership. Each has different responsibilities and benefits.
The first category is membership as a Sitting/Main Gallery Member. All new artist members will pay a $35.00 fee upon being accepted in the Gallery. Member�s responsibilities include sitting the Gallery one day per month and contribution to the operation of the Gallery by volunteering to perform at least one other job. As a Sitting Member you are allowed to show your work in the main Gallery and to participate in the Featured Artist exhibition. Sitting Members are charged a low 35% commission on all their sales.
The second category of artist membership is that of the Gift Member. Members in this category show primarily in the Gift Shop rather than in the main Gallery and do not participate in the Featured Artist exhibition program. Gift Members do not sit the Gallery and are not required to perform other work for the Gallery. They are charged a 45% commission on all sales.
The following criteria will inform the jury process:
� The art needs to be �professional� in execution demonstrating
knowledge of and skill in the handling of appropriate techniques.
� Consistent with the look and tone of the Gallery.
� Represents an individualized approach.
� Has commercial potential.
Gallery space is very limited. As a consequence, it may be that even through you are accepted for membership in the Gallery we may not be able to show your work immediately. If this is the case, your name will be placed on our waiting list. You will be notified when space opens up.
� Submit 3 to 6 pieces of your current work to be juried. You may
submit work in more than one media � drawings and paintings, for
example. If you are accepted as a member you will be permitted to
only show work consistent with the art you submitted for jurying.
Any artwork that is substantially different from your accepted work
will require re-jurying once you are a member.
� All work must be framed, mounted and presented as it will be shown
in the Gallery
� Each work must be clearly marked with your name, address, phone
number and email address so we can contact you.
� You must indicate which membership category � Sitting or Gift
member - you are applying for.
� You will be notified by mail no later than 3 weeks after submission.
Thank you again for inquiring about membership in the Winthrop Gallery. We look forward to seeing your work.
