May 2018 Call for All Artists

Portraits Unlimited

Mint Hill Arts is pleased to present our May show, which is open to Mint Hill Arts members and non-members.  This non-judged show is all about portraits, whether they be abstract, realistic, impressionistic, self-portraits – let your portraiture skills show and go!   Portraits of your pets are also appropriate.

Open to:
Members and Nonmembers of Mint Hill Arts

Sizes:

2-D work cannot exceed 60″ x 60″ vertically or horizontally.
3-D work cannot exceed a 36″ footprint x 7′ in height, must be easily transportable, fit through the door, and be displayed appropriately.

Rules:

  • Each artist may enter up to four (4) individual pieces in any medium.
  • All 2D artwork must be properly framed and wired (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).
  • All work must be original.  Reproductions of work done by other artists will be disqualified.
  • All artists must fill out our Gallery Registration Form and affix our Intake Labels. See the MHA website for more information and links to these forms. 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.
