CBTC Call for Entries

CALL FOR ENTRIES:  FCCA and Community Bank of the Chesapeake Community Art Exhibit

Online Submission Form

(June 2020)

All artists who are current members of FCCA are invited to submit entries for the summer exhibit at the downtown branch of the Bank located at 425 William Street.

Lauren Braney, Special Events coordinator for FCCA and CBTC, will coordinate the selection and installation of the art.  Starting with this show and going forward we will be accepting sculptures!  Sculptures are limited to a maximum of 2ft x 2ft x 2ft size limit.  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 August 3, 2020 through January 2021.  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 using the online submission form under off-site exhibitions: CBTC.  Both 2D and 3D work will be accepted.  THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE FOR THIS SHOW.  Submissions are due Wednesday, July 15, 2020.  Notifications of accepted work will be sent out via email on Friday, July 17th.  Accepted works must be delivered to the CBTC branch at 425 William Street the morning of Monday, August 3rd.  If you are unable to bring the work in yourself, you must have someone else deliver it for you.

Procedures and requirements are the same as those for submitting to FCCA shows, however, you must submit them to the above the CBTC online form (not FCCA).  Include the following information:

  • Artist Name

And the following information for each piece:

  • Title (Lastname_firstname_title.jpg)
  • Media
  • Framed size (HxWxD)
