HOW MANY PIECES CAN I SUBMIT?
Each artist may submit 1 to 2 pieces.

CAN I GET FINANCIAL HELP?
If you are unable to submit due to financial reasons, we have a donor supported Angel Fund that your fee can come out of. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request financial assistance or if you would like to donate to the Angel Fund. We also have scholarships that start every February that cover membership and all submission fees for a year. For more information on applying to receive a scholarship click here.
WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP AFTER THE ONLINE SUBMISSION?
You must submit images AND bring both pieces to the gallery on the drop off day. All exhibitions are in gallery and online. The exhibition will not be juried unless there are too many entries. At this time we can guarantee that one of your two entries will be included and you will be notified if something had to be juried out. Please note that your entry fee is an administrative fee and is the same whether one or two pieces are in the show. NO ARTWORK WILL BE ACCEPTED INTO THE GALLERY EXHIBITION AFTER 2PM on the drop off day.
DOES GFAA TAKE A COMMISSION ON THE SALE OF MY ARTWORK?
Yes, GFAA will take 30% commission of sales. Please price your work accordingly.
CAN I SHOW WORK THAT HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY SHOWN AT GFAA?
Please do not submit work that has been in a previous online exhibition or shown in the GFAA gallery in the last 3 years. You may submit work that has been in community venues (such as Sweetberries Cafe or Simed).
WHAT MEDIUMS DO YOU ACCEPT?
All Mediums are accepted! We just ask that it is original and yours.
HOW DO I PREPARE MY WORK FOR INSTALLATION?
Please refer here: GFAA Exhibition Guidelines. All wall hanging work has to be ready for professional and safe hanging with hardware or wire in place. Pieces should be framed if needed and the display should be clean and well thought out. It is possible that your work may not be accepted if it is not deemed ready to display. If your work requires a complicated installation, you will be required to come help with the installation.
ARE THERE AWARDS THAT ARE GIVEN OUT?
Yes! All exhibitions are judged unless noted. 8 awards will be given out by an art professional. Awards are as follows: Best in Show ($125), Award of Excellence ($100), Third Place Award ($75), and five Merit Awards ($30). No work that has won awards in previous gallery exhibitions will be accepted.
