Exhibitions 2018 – 2019

New Opportunity for Members to show extra work
 Please read the Information below

Thumb Drive File of Art Work

Every once in a while, the Art Guild has opportunities to show extra work. We would like to build a “library” of members work. Interested artists should make a high quality digital file of up to 6 pieces and put that on a thumb drive and give the thumb drive to the overall Exhibit Chairperson. The works should be labeled with title, size, medium, price and name of artist. The thumb drive will be returned to the artist at the next meeting.

The owner of Trends will have a mini exhibit in her window to attract clients to come in and see the show. It can be, depending on size, 4-8 pieces by one person or a variety of artists; that is up to the vendor. The pieces should be consistent with the theme of the show and will have signage with the theme title, name of our organization etc. The window exhibit attracts potential clients and is often viewed separately from the main exhibit.

The Exhibit Chair may also use this pool of Thumb Drives to choose artists for other shows. For example, the pool will be used to choose contenders for the posters used throughout the building of the Thrasher Horne/Art Guild of Orange Park Spring Show.

The file could also be used when we have opportunities to have a medium specific show: photography, pottery/sculpture, painting or printmaking.

Brochures and advertising will need images that are printing ready therefore, all digital files should be JPEGs, clear, large, and labeled. They can be resized for printing needs. Perhaps our photographers or specific artists (who work with photoshop can help edit files).

Please bring your Thumb Drive File of Art Works to our meeting on October 2nd and give it to Dee Roberts our Exhibit Chair.
