We are looking for:

-small to medium sized work, maybe on paper, maybe not.

-work may not necessarily be prints.

-unframed.

-created within the last two or three years.

-the exhibition will probably be salon style—ish.

We will be jurying from digital slides emailed to us.  You can submit up to 2 pieces.  Your slides must be:

-300 dpi.

-jpg format

-the longest dimension can be a maximum of 6 inches.

-name your files such as: lastname_title1.jpg and lastname_title2.jpg

We will let you know of any accepted pieces through email by March 10th.
