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.
All FCCA Members are invited to submit entries for the 2021 Winter exhibit at the downtown branch of the Bank located at 425 William Street. The Exhibit will run for four months.
Tronja Anglero, FCCA Vice President, along with Matt Williams, FCCA President, will coordinate the selection and installation of the art. All work must be for sale, properly framed and ready to hang (with gallery hooks and wire). If art is sold, 25% of the purchase price will go to FCCA. Work must remain on display through the duration of the exhibition, which will run from September 18, 2021 through January 16,2022. If a piece sells, the artist will be encouraged to bring in a replacement work.
FCCA Members are invited to submit up to three works of art for this show. Work MUST be submitted digitally via email to firstname.lastname@example.org . THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE FOR THIS SHOW. Submissions are due August 27, 2021. Notifications of accepted work will be sent out via email on Tuesday, August 31.
