Chestertown RiverArts Exhibit Submission Guidelines

  • Art to be hung on walls should be dry and securely wired for hanging.
  • Work must not have previously been shown locally in a Chestertown RiverArts sponsored event, and it should be work from the past two years.
  • Art should be original. Reproductions of paintings or drawings such as giclees printed on canvas or paper are not accepted.
  • Lithographs, etchings and other printmaking works of art should be created by the artist, numbered and signed.
  • Photographic prints, digital and film, should be printed from the artists’ negative or digital file, ideally by or under the direction of the artist, and signed.
  • Works on paper should be framed behind glass or plexiglass.
  • Unframed works of fine art, e.g. paintings on canvas, are accepted if appropriately wired for hanging.
  • Works of art requiring special or unusual display structures should be submitted along with the structure for display.
  • Artists submitting work will be asked to sign a contract at the time of submission giving permission for the work to remain at the gallery until the end of the show unless special circumstances warrant otherwise.
  • All work must be for sale- ie. no NFS
  • A 35% commission is taken by RiverArts for all sales.
  • Artists pay hanging fees of $10 per piece of art if a member and $20 per piece if not a member.
  • Artists submitting work must pick up (or arrange with a friend to pick up) art at the end of the show during the check out dates and times. RiverArts does not have storage space adequate to protect art.
  •  All work sent to RiverArts via USPS, UPS or another carrier must have a prepaid return label included.
