Please read prior to submitting work to the juried exhibition: UNBOUND
   This is open to all artists, all subjects and all mediums.

   Please review the following GUIDELINES:
Art Center Sarasota Juried  Exhibition Guidelines for Submission     revised 7.25.16 (supersedes all previous)
SUBMISSION   FEES: All juried exhibitions require a non-refundable entry  fee for each submission.
In an effort to maintain best  gallery practices, Art Center Sarasota (ACS) implements the following rules   and regulations for this juried exhibition. We ask that potential submitters   read and adhere to the rules as we will not accept artworks that do not comply.   Observing the following points ensures your artwork is exhibited in the best  way possible.  
NEW!     When entering work, we will now be asking for more specifics on your medium and base. We highly recommend that photographs, prints and digital art is numbered in an edition.
ORIGINALITY & PRINTS     •    All entries must be original work completed within the   last three years and not previously shown in any ACS show.     •    Copies and reproductions of original works of art,   whether embellished or not, are not eligible for submission to juried   exhibitions. However, prints such as photographs, lithographs, woodcuts,   engravings, etching, screen prints, and digital works are acceptable as long   as they are labeled as such, and numbered as an edition.
   •    Because of the misuse of the word   “giclée,” ACS no longer refers to copies and reproductions of original works   of art as such. Giclée refers to a method, not an object.
   •    Please be mindful of copyright   infringements – BE ORIGINAL!    
DIPTYCHS,   TRIPTYCHS & QUADRIPTYCHS    •    A Diptych,Triptych, or Quadriptych is considered as one   submission of artwork and must be priced as one individual piece. It   must be submitted, charged, and labeled as such.  The overall maximum size   of the diptych, triptych or quadriptych may not exceed 6ft. x 6ft.    Please contact Exhibition Coordinator to discuss any questions you might have   before submission of work.    
SIZE    •    Maximum size for artwork is 6ft. in any direction.
   •    Any entry weighing over 40 lbs. must be handled by the artist and prior arrangements for its placement made with the Exhibition Coordinator.

REVIEW COMMITTEE    •    The Review Committee will inspect submissions for   condition and adherence to the above policies.    •    Inclusion in the exhibit is at the sole discretion of the   juror(s) (not connected with ACS and is   non-negotiable).

SALES    All work on exhibit must be for sale.  No POR (Price on Request)   or NFS (Not for Sale) is permitted in a juried show unless specified in an   exhibition prospectus.  The Art Center will collect Florida sales tax   plus a 35% commission on all work sold.  Artists receive payment of 65%   of original price.  It is up to the artists to claim sales on their   income tax.
     Art MUST be picked up within two days after the close of the  exhibition.  Artists must sign the entry form copy which is attached to  the artwork as a receipt and leave it at the front desk. If artwork  is not picked up on the designated day, fees will incur on a daily basis   {$5.00/day for every business day starting two business days after the pick   up date}.

MISCELLANEOUS     •    The Exhibition Coordinator must be notified in advance if   an unconventional method of presentation or hanging is required. Policies of   the host gallery will prevail.    •    Once an accepted piece of artwork is installed in a show,   please do not ask to change its location.  Once artwork is installed, it   is in its final location and cannot be moved.
