Gallery 924 is seeking entries from central Indiana artists for a group show featuring artwork made of wood or work that incorporates wood or the idea of wood. If you carve wood, are a wood turner, paint on wood, create found object assemblages with wood, or create any type of artwork with the use of wood, we want to hear from you.
Wood has always been an artist’s tool used to build stretcher frames, paint brushes, carving tools, build maquettes, and hundreds of more uses. We would like to see how artists use the material as a finished artwork, not just as a tool to create.
Furniture designers are welcome to submit.
The group exhibition will be chosen by an internal selection committee and curated and installed by the Gallery 924 staff. The show will open with a public reception during the IDADA First Friday Gallery Tour on Friday, November 4 and remain up until Friday, November 25, 2011.
Work will be selected based on the quality of the work and the relevance to the theme of the show. Artists working in all styles are encouraged to submit, but work must be original, no Giclée prints or reproductions of any kind will be accepted. Work must have been completed within the last three years. If 2D, work must be framed (if appropriate), wired and ready to hang. There are no size restrictions on artwork. If your large-scale work is accepted into the show, the gallery staff will work with you to find a display solution.
All central Indiana artists over the age of 18 are welcome to submit. For these purposes, central Indiana is considered to be Marion and the seven surrounding counties.
Work must be delivered Monday, October 31 or Tuesday, November 1 and if not sold must be picked up on November 28 or 29, 2011. Artists are encouraged to attend the opening, but not required. Artwork will be insured by the gallery for the entirety of the time it is in the gallery.
To submit, please email the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Up to 5 (five) images
Images should be 72dpi and around 800 pixels in any direction (or of a file size less than 1MB each)
Image list with title, date, medium, dimensions* and price**

*Please include dimensions of actual display space, including any frames. Also, if your work has a frame that is anything other than a simple black gallery frame, please send a photo of the frame as well.
**Please note that Gallery 924 takes a 25% commission on all artwork sold in the gallery; however, artists should keep their prices at a consistent level based upon previous sales, not commission rates.
