Art Show Entry
Call for Art: Attention artists! Start planning your Harry Potter inspired art entries – art show will run the week before the event. Think creatively – art doesn’t have to be SPECIFIC to Harry Potter – many things can be tied to the theme, such as trains, castles, owls, keys, etc.
Each artist may have up to 5 separate entries. Space is limited, all artists must submit their intent to enter BEFORE August 4, 2018. Use this form to let us know you are submitting works. You are not obligated to submit the number of entries you select here, but choose the number you plan on working on to allow us to plan for display space. BELOW THE FORM IS MORE INFO FOR ARTISTS! Be sure to read it!
ALL artists are welcome, you do NOT have to be a professional to enter – amateurs and hobbyists are ENCOURAGED to take part!
Please bring your art to The Garage (1110 N Main St, Fort Stockton) BEFORE Friday, August 24. Artwork MUST be ready to hang for display (no tabletop sculptures), and maximum size is 36″ x 36″, and no more than 5″ deep.
Make sure EACH piece is tagged on the back with ALL of the following information.
(a handwritten 3″x5″ card is acceptable, please be sure whatever you use is legible and affixed to the BACK of the artwork)
- Your contact information (including your name and phone number)
- Name of the piece and description of media
- Include the price you are asking for the piece.
20% of your sale price will be donated to SLAM (Fort Stockton Association for the Support of Local Arts & Music). Take this into consideration when pricing your pieces. If you price it at $100, you will receive $80, and $20 will be donated.
If you do NOT include a price, a suggested donation price will be assigned, of which 100% will be given to SLAM.
