Saturday, January 28, 10:00AM - 12:00PM

It will save you time at Intake to print them, fill them out and bring them in with your artwork, but they will be available at Intake for those who choose to fill them out in the gallery.
> Mint Hill Arts accepts all artwork but reserves the right to turn down any artwork that it deems as inappropriate, unsafe for public display or too difficult to install.
> Entering artists must be 18 years old or have written permission from a parent/guardian.
> All artwork must remain in the show until its closing, unless it is sold in which case it can be taken from the gallery at the time of the sale. If you have an emergency and must remove your artwork, you must notify Mint Hill Arts and make arrangements accordingly. For all sales, MHA withholds a 20% commission.
> Forms for entering artwork and instructions for wiring are available here.

Sizes:
> 2-D work cannot exceed 60" x 60" vertically or horizontally.
> 3-D work cannot exceed a 36" footprint x 7' in height; it must fit through the door and be appropriately displayed

Commissions:
Mint Hill Arts requires a commission (20%) on all work sold through our gallery. All sales are run through the gallery and checks are made payable to Mint Hill Arts. Artists are paid within 30 days of the sale.

All proceeds from sales go to Mint Hill Arts, an all-volunteer non-profit art organization. You do not have to put your work up for sale; whether to sell, and the price of your work, is determined by you. Sold work can be taken from the gallery at the time of the sale.
