Omaha Artists, Inc. Fall Art Show
Theme "Shadows" at Galley 92 Art Center Fremont, NE
We will begin registration on Sunday, November 1. To prevent everyone showing up at the same time, we will assign you a time slot according to the first letter of your last name. We may divide into 4 groups, and have 1/2 register on Nov. 1, and the other 1/2 on Nov. 2. The logistics will be in the next newsletter. This will be a judged show, but we are not sure yet if we will be able to have a reception due to COVID restrictions and safeguards. Take down will be on Sunday November 29.
Things to remember:
• You can only enter up to 3 pieces, depending on size. (See size restrictions below)
• You cannot enter any art that you have already entered in another OAI art show.
• All pieces must have a wire hanger on the back.
• All artwork must have been completed within the last 2 years.
Fee to enter - $15, whether you enter 1, 2 or 3 pieces. Remember to price your pieces accordingly, remembering that Galley 92 takes 25% of the value.
Image Size Guidelines
We will be enforcing size guidelines, in order to give the shows a better look, and to avoid overcrowding. These sizes refer to the OUTSIDE EDGES OF THE FRAME:
3 pieces allowed 11 x 14 or smaller, (area of 154 square inches or smaller), each piece. Square inches are measured by multiplying the length by the width of the outside edge of the frame.
2 pieces allowed at 24 x 30 or smaller, (area of 720 square inches or smaller).
1 piece allowed larger than 24 x 30, with maximum size of 40 x 40, (1600 square inches).
Or you can figure out sizes this way:
Sizes may be figured by adding two adjacent sides, so smallest no bigger than 25 (11+14, or 12+12 etc.), middle size 54, (24+30, or 26+28, etc.)), and largest – when two sides added together are greater than 54 but not larger than 80 total.
2021 Art Shows - None have been scheduled yet. I have looked into the Jewish community Center, and also Hot shops Art Center. I'm waiting to hear back from them. If you have any ideas for new art show venues, please contact me.
