LAWRENCE GALLERY JURY PROCEDURES
Our Web site, www.lawrencegallery.NET, is the introduction point for the artist’s work for the Jury Process. Please email 3 digital ‘jpg’ low resolution images, with sizes and retail prices, and a brief bio to email@example.com. If we deem that our market might respond to the work, the artist is invited to Stage 2.
Please submit photographs or color image copies representing a body of current work, each labeled with the title, medium, size and retail price. Also include a resume or biographical information pertaining to your education, influences, shows and other representations. Please enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope to accommodate the return of your materials. MATERIALS WITHOUT SUFFICIENT RETURN POSTAGE WILL NOT BE RETURNED.
Send materials to:
PO Box 187
Sheridan, OR 97378
Submitted materials are juried biannually, in February and September. You are welcome to submit information and we will keep it on file until the next round that the jury convenes. Then written response can be expected within 4-6 weeks after the jury materials have been reviewed.
If the jury wishes to view your work firsthand, you will be invited to Stage Three of the jury process. Please submit 5-6 pieces that are representative of a body of current work, pieces that could be left at the gallery for representation, should the work be selected. Please label each piece with your name, title, retail price, size, and edition number if applicable.
Shipping, pickup and delivery of materials are the sole responsibility of the artist.
The jury's decision is based on aesthetic qualities and craftsmanship, but also includes other factors, such as whether or not there is a market in our area for the work and whether we already sufficiently represent the medium and subject matter. The artist whose work is not accepted should not assume that the jury judged it to be of a lesser quality. Unfortunately, the gallery is limited to selecting only a small percentage of the work submitted and does not wish to discourage any artist. The work we do not accept this time may be accepted another time as we strive to keep a balance of all media and to meet the demands of the market.
Work received without pricing will not be submitted to the jury until pricing is received. If you are a relatively new artist and need help with pricing, use an estimated price based on other sales of your work. If your work meets our market criteria, we can help you establish firm prices later.
