2014 Members' Gallery
Call for Entries
Application and Requirements (PDF)
2014 is a long ways off but it already time to consider your art for the 2014 Members' Gallery line-up. 22 spots in 2014! The 2012 and 2013 Members' Gallery has featured solo art exhibits and quality ones at that. There was an FCCA record of 43 entries for 2012 submissions but the number of 2013 submissions dropped. To encourage more entries, 2014 will feature up to two artists/month January-November. As in years past, the selection process will continue to be fair, anonymous, and as confidential as possible. Three out-of-town jurors have been invited to convene in August and evaluate entries. The jurors will also help decide on artist pairings based on entries. In the unlikely event there are less than 22 submissions, artists of top rated portfolios will be offered a solo exhibit opportunity.
Please consider entering. The Members' Gallery is a rather unique artist benefit. As before, all types of artwork is encouraged. 3D artwork has been more prominent at FCCA lately and 3D submissions are certainly encouraged. So snap high-quality photos of your mosaic work, textiles, pottery, drawings, sculpture, paintings, photography, lithography, screen-printing, digital graphics, or mixed media. Or hit the studio hard since you still have time!
2014 entries must include a completed application from the FCCA website or docent desk, 1 original artwork, and 4 high quality jpeg images e-mailed to Bill Hartland at membersgallery@FCCAva.org. Or entries can be submitted on a CD with 4 high quality jpeg images. FCCA member, Carolyn Beever, has offered to professionally photograph applicant entries for artists who need digital images on CD. A date will be forthcoming for those interested. Artists can make appointments with the FCCA docent for these photos when a date a been set. There are no thematic requirements, although entries should best represent your creative style and vision. Check out the FCCA website and follow the Call for Artists link for more application specifics. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions or ideas. We have a talented membership and I look forward to more high caliber exhibits!
