Current Call for Artists

Postponement of the Annual
Romie & Judy Photography Show

In response to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Mint Hill Arts has made the decision to postpone the Annual Romie and Judy Mizell Photography Show until May. This show, typically held in April, is a significant show for Mint Hill Arts, as is the only show during the year that features solely photography and therefore, receives a good number of entries from local photographers. It is also a judged show adding to its popularity. The anticipation is that the reception for this show will be well-attended; consequently, the gallery felt it wise to postpone it until May in the hope that the concerns and restrictions presented by Coronavirus (COVID-19) will lessen significantly or be lifted completely. The new intake dates for this show will be April 24th and 25th and the reception will be held on May 1st (please see the revised dates shown below). Thank you for supporting Mint Hill Arts.

Rules:

  • Each artist may enter up to 2 pieces.
  • All entries must be original works of art. We understand that photography is, by nature, a print and will be regarded as original art.
  • All artists must fill out our Gallery Registration Form; your signature on the form indicates acceptance of our liability waiver (available on our website, HERE).
  • Each piece must have an Intake Label attached to the back.
  • Entering artists must be 18 years old or have written permission from a parent/guardian.
  • All 2-D artwork must be properly framed and wired, i.e.,using wire rather than sawtooth hangers (see website for more information). If your 2-D work does not require a frame, hanging must be thought out so it is ready to be displayed. Please try to avoid using poor quality frames (we’ve had artwork fall and break due to this).
  • Mint Hill Arts reserves the right to turn down any artwork that is not properly framed or is deemed as inappropriate, unsafe for public display or too difficult to install.
  • 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.
