Call for entries: Moving to Email

A CHANGE IN HOW ARTISTS RECEIVE FREDERICK GALLERY PROSPECTUSES:

The FCCA Frederick Gallery will change to emailing future Calls-for-Entries (prospectuses) starting with the November 2021 “Light & Reflection” national all-media juried exhibit.  Due to COVID restrictions in the last year we need to find some cost saving measures and turn to more use of electronic communications.  We appreciate your understanding.

We will electronically send the prospectus to artists on our artists’ contacts mailing list.  We previously mailed hard-copies of the prospectuses to a mailing list of 200+ artists who requested to receive mailed copies. We will no longer mail hard-copies unless individually requested by those without email service.   We will use the same FCCA artist mailing list but send to email addresses instead of having printed prospectuses mailed to the USPS addresses.

We will continue to accept hand-delivered entries for juried exhibits in the Frederick Gallery. There will be hard-copies of the prospectuses available at the FCCA docent desk.

For additional information or questions, contact curator@fccagallery.org  or call 540-76-6928.
