Members Gallery Exhibits
One of the benefits of membership is the opportunity to have a solo or
joint exhibition in the Members Gallery on the first floor.
All current members are eligible and encouraged to apply to the jury.
Each year in March, the Art Committee of Concord Art Association selects
the Members Gallery roster for the following year. The deadline for
submissions is March 29, 2013. (Please note extended deadline)
To apply, please send a resume, artist’s statement, and 8 to 12 images
of your work in either a digital (Mac Compatible)* or slide format to:
Members Gallery Application
Concord Art Association
37 Lexington Road
Concord, MA 01742
Or e-mail the same to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you wish to have your slides or disk returned, please send a self-addressed
envelope with your submission.
After the Art Committee meets and selects the exhibitors for the following
year, the group prepares the order of exhibits, to assure that there is variety
and change within the offerings (e.g. not hosting two artists with watercolor
landscapes back to back). Artists may not repeat within three years. Sometimes,
artists are requested to partner with another artist or artists to produce a joint
or group exhibit. Artists will be notified by e-mail of their selection and the month.
The conditions for Exhibiting
The usual schedule is for exhibits to be hung on the first day of the month and taken down on the last day of the month, subject to the Artists and Concord Art's schedules. Work may be hung only on the wall, no easel displays. Artists are responsible for hanging and taking down their work on the appointed days. Any shipping of artwork is the sole responsibility
of the Artist.
Layout and measurements of Members Gallery
Concord Art Association receives a 33% commission on all work sold including
additional items (i.e. books). Sales tax is applicable to all items and will be
collected by Concord Art Association. Payment will be made to Artists after
all sales have been finalized within two weeks after the close of the show.
Artists must label and price all artwork and all work must be for sale. The labels
need to be Avery 8663 or 5663 which provide enough backing to adhere to the wall,
but do not peel off the paint when removed. Artists are responsible for leaving the wall surfaces in the same condition as found.
Members Gallery exhibitions will be featured and archived on our website. If all, or most,
of the work to be exhibited is available as .JPG images, Artists may submit these
prior to the start of the show to expedite this process. Send to email@example.com as well as
one main photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, work will be photographed after the exhibit has been installed.
If Artists wish to have a reception, the date and time must be cleared with the staff, and should be during normal business hours. No red wine may be served. Artists must attend
to all the details of the reception and cleanup, including removal of all trash.
Artists are responsible for creating and mailing any invitations, postcards or
announcements. Postcards must be reviewed by the director before publication.
As a courtesy, Concord Art Association will include the Members Gallery exhibits
in its press releases when possible. All other publicity is the Artist’s responsibility.
