Exhibitors are selected on the basis of design, quality and presentation as determined by an independent jury of art professionals with knowledge and experience in multiple art disciplines and curatorial positions. Artists are juried by category and each artist is then assigned a score. Those with the highest scores per category will be invited to participate. A limited number of artists per category will be accepted to provide a balanced show. In addition, a score-based wait list will be maintained in each category with cancellations filled from that list. The jury process is done anonymously, and the decision of the jury is final.
There will be a limited number of space available. All Juried winners must complete an application, submit all images and pay all fees by the appropriate required deadlines as stated below.
5 digital images of your artwork and application. Digital images must be current and show artwork completed within the past two years.
Digital image quality is essential and can make a difference in your acceptance. The jury has only your digital images with which to judge your work. The best image is one that is full framed with the artist’s single work, is well lit and is representative of the body of work intended for exhibition but without the artist’s name so as to remain anonymous to jurors. It should contain all work to be exhibited since it stands as a visual contract between you and the Home Bank White Linen Night. Failure to follow the digital image requirements will result in disqualification.
Coordinators of the Home Bank White Linen Night will provide and assign an indoor space for all Artists. Artists are expected to provide their own easels, tables and chairs. 3D Sculptures may be no larger than 6’ x 3’ and 2D works no larger than 4’ x 5’. There may be some room for storage within each space depending upon your assigned location.
