MATERIALS: 171 Cedar Arts Center can provide you with up to 16 unprimed, non-archival, 6” x 6” and/or 12″ x 12″ wood panels (with holes drilled in the back for hanging and ease of installation). Other 6” x 6” and/or 12″ x 12″ panels may be used at the artist’s expense (small canvases, and ceramic painting panels, etc.) as long as the presentation is professional in appearance and there is a rigid support and hanging hardware included. Hanging hardware must all be 1/2 inch down from the top center of each piece. Work will be displayed unframed. Variations must be approved by 171 Cedar Arts Center in advance.

MEDIA: All fine art visual media may be submitted. Artists may prime and paint on panels, or attach canvas, drawings, or watercolor paper. 3D sculptures or jewelry may be attached to wall-mounted panels, or stand on 171-approved shelves, tables, or pedestals. View layout examples below. If your work requires an alternative setup, contact us for approval as soon as possible. Contact Kate Heiman, heimank@171cedararts.org 

INSTALLATION: Artwork must be delivered no later than October 30, with all necessary mounting hardware included, if applicable. If you aren’t using the provided panels, please have your work ready with all necessary mounting hardware included. Artists are asked to assist with the installation of their works and scheduling will be coordinated with Kate Heiman. No more than 16 six-inch square panels will be hung and no fewer than 4 twelve-inch square panels should be provided. The artwork layout must conform to one of the layouts below and all works must be unframed.

Finished panels should be signed, dated, and numbered on the back. No partial deliveries or wet paintings will be accepted. Display space for each artist will be the decision of 171. 171 Cedar Arts Center may require fragile work to be installed by the artist no later than noon on November 6, 2024.

DISPLAY MATERIALS – BIO/ARTIST STATEMENT: Each artist will submit a bio/artist statement (not to exceed 250 words), to display with their artwork. 171 will print these uniformly on card stock along with a label that has the artist’s information. NO OTHER MATERIALS MAY BE PLACED AT YOUR DISPLAY.

PRICING AND SALES:

  • MOSAIC 2023 all artwork must be for sale.
  • All works of an individual artist must have the same price on pieces of equal size (i.e. 6″ x 6″ should have one price and 12″x 12″ works can have the same or greater price as long as they are all equally priced within the same size category).
  • Suggested range for pricing: six-inch squared pieces should be listed for no less than $50 each, but you may price higher based on your typical sales.
  • 171 will process sales and sales tax and will take a 30% commission. Artists have the option to give 50% to 100% of their sales as a tax-deductible donation.
