Call for Entry: OVAC Member Gallery at Coffee Slingers Roasters
Only open to current OVAC Members

Rolling submission deadline; exhibition opening dates are:
January 31, 2017
March 31, 2107

Eligibility

Artists must be current residents of Oklahoma and active members of the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition (OVAC). OVAC membership must be sustained for the duration of the exhibition, which will last for two months following the opening.

Curator

All artists will be selected by Melody Harwell, owner of Coffee Slingers Roasters. OVAC will provide technical assistance and planning support, but will not make any final selection decisions.

Specifications

All forms of work will be considered that are no larger than 22 x 28” for two-dimensional work. All work must be hang-ready with D-rings and wire—we cannot accommodate saw-tooth or raw canvases without wire. Three-dimensional work will be considered, but must be able to hang from gallery wire hanging system, as there will be no shelving units available.

Applications

Artists may complete the online application available via the direct link on the member page (http://ovac-ok.org/members/). You may submit up to ten works for consideration; the actual number of works to be exhibited may differ, depending on size and what best suits the curator’s tastes. The link is only visible on the website when you are logged in as an active member. If you have forgotten your login, please contact Joshua Cassella at outreach@ovac-ok.org. If you need to join or update your membership, please visit: http://ovac-ok.org/get-involved/.

Applications for each respective exhibition opening must be received by the following dates in order to be considered:

March(apply by January 31, 2017)
May(apply by March 31, 2107)


Selected artists will be announced within two weeks of application deadline and notified by email of acceptance. Due to the large volume of applicants and the rolling nature of the selection process, formal decline emails will not be sent to those artists not selected. Rather, applicants are responsible for checking the member page for artist announcements at http://ovac-ok.org/members/.

Applications not initially accepted will be retained for up to one year to be considered for future OVAC Member Gallery exhibitions, or any additional non-OVAC sponsored exhibition opportunities that arise. Occasionally, outside agencies contact us for artist recommendations—we retain the right to refer such parties to active OVAC Member Gallery applications.

This is a FREE benefit of OVAC membership and there is no entry fee required.

Liability

Artists are responsible for the safe delivery, installation, and timely pick up of work. OVAC and Coffee Slingers Roasters are not responsible at any time for the loss, damage, or theft of artwork.

Sales

Work may be offered for sale. Artists will receive 70% of selling price, so please price accordingly.

For questions or more information, please call OVAC at 405-879-2400.
