HOW TO SUBMIT:
All Coast Collective exhibits will be juried by way of digital images of original artwork. Any medium is acceptable in 2 or 3-dimensions, from one-of-a-kind wearable art to paintings, jewelry, sculpture, functional pottery, and everything in between. Applications are due at 5:00 p.m. on the deadline date. Each Artist is limited to 4 entries (unless otherwise specified in the call), and the work should each be less than 60” (152.4cm) in any dimension. If you have work that falls outside of these parameters, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss ways that we may be able to accommodate your work.
Please do not submit work that has been previously displayed at the Coast Collective Art Centre. No work needs to be delivered to the Gallery prior to acceptance and no adjudication fees apply. Artwork currently on display in the Coast Collective Gift Shop is not eligible to be entered into a gallery exhibition. All submitted work must be original, not copied from any other artist – which includes not using photographs taken by other people as source material.
Show applications can be submitted using the online submission form. If you have trouble using the online application form, please send an e-mail to email@example.com, explaining your problem and we’ll help. Application deadlines, notifications of acceptance and art drop-off dates are all listed for each of our shows. Further instructions about the delivery of works will be provided upon acceptance into a show.
Starting with Black and White + 1 (September 6-17) hanging fees will be charged (except for Coast Collective Associate Members) unless specified within the call, and a 30% Commission (25% for Coast Collective Associate Members) will be retained by the Gallery for each piece sold. Hanging fees are $10 per item, up to a maximum of $30. If, as a direct result of showing at the Coast Collective, your work sells after the show, the gallery would appreciate a 10% Finder’s Fee. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or need more information.
Security and Liability
The Coast Collective Art Gallery provides 24-hour security through supervision and/or an alarm system. We do not take responsibility for any damage or loss of art pieces stored or displayed on our premises.
Pick up of artwork
The artist is responsible for picking up his/her artwork at the specified time at the end of each show. A $2 per day fee will be due from the artist for each piece not picked up on time unless arrangements are made PRIOR to the stated pick-up date. Please make your best effort to pick up artwork on time. Effort is required to clear the gallery of unclaimed works when artists fail to recover the art after a show, and storage space in our new facility is extremely limited. Late pick-up fees will be strictly enforced.
Artwork not picked up
Artwork not collected before the storage fees exceed the purchase price for the piece as specified by the artist, or within 2 months of the end of the show, whichever comes first, will become the property of the SASI/Coast Collective.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com or all us at 250.391.5522.
