No nudes. If you submit nudes, they will not be juried and you will not get a refund.
The maximum physical dimension for framed images is 36” on the longest side. This is the measurement for the longest side of the frame and not the size of the photograph within.
Gallery wraps are not acceptable. All photographs, including those on canvas, metal, wood, or other
non-paper substrates, must be framed and ready to hang with wire hangers. Sawtooth hangers will not be accepted. While The Art League of Baytown (ALB) reserves the right to decide what presentation is appropriate for this exhibit, if you follow these instructions you should be fine.
Photographers are encouraged to use white or off-white mats and black frames. You are required to use plexiglass if shipping your work to ALB. Glass is more easily broken during shipping and nothing ruins our day more that opening a box full of broken glass. We will seal it and send it right back. However, glass is acceptable if the photographer decides to hand deliver their work to our gallery and then pick it up after the exhibition.
Please do not ship work with packaging ‘peanuts’. Artists shipping their work must use reusable good quality packing materials. ALB cannot be responsible for damage or loss during transit. Shipping and delivery details will be provided with notification of acceptance. Remember, we’re artists too so we will always treat your work how we would want someone to treat ours. ALB will not be responsible for normal wear and tear during the exhibition, such as minor nicks to frames or scratches to Plexiglas. Once more, no packing peanuts.
Delivery and return of images to and from the Art League of Baytown is the photographer’s responsibility, including insurance. If photographs are shipped a prepaid return shipping label must be provided by the photographer when the work is shipped to our gallery. We will not ship photos back to the artist without a prepaid shipping label. Any images that are shipped to the gallery without a prepaid return shipping label will not be accepted into the show until the label is in the possession of ALB. Photographs remaining at ALB 60 days after the exhibit closes become the property of ALB.
The Art League of Baytown reserves the right to decide what presentation is appropriate for this exhibit. ALB expects all delivered work to be printed and framed at a professional level.
All images must be for sale. The Art League of Baytown recieves 30% commission on all sales. Please keep that in mind when pricing your artwork. If your work sells we will happily send you a check minus the commission fee.
Submission of work automatically waives any claim for damage of loss against ALB, including the officers, members and employees.
USE RIGHTS: Each artist retains all copyrights to their own images. Artist’s recognition is provided with any use. By submission for jurying, artists whose submissions are chosen for the exhibition grant the Art League of Baytown the right to use their images for the purpose of promoting the artist, promoting ALB’s programs, promoting exhibitions and subsequent display on ALB’s website of current and past exhibitions, and represents that the artist created the image and has the right to make this grant of use. Promotions and images may also be placed on social networks for the Art League of Baytown with artist credit.
