8th Annual Small Works Show at Hope & Feathers

Open Call for Art: The 8th Annual Small Works Show is coming! 

This year we're doing it again: we provide a 6x6" or 5x7" birch panel to create your masterpiece on! The $25 entry fee includes one panel, a frame, and glass. A variety of custom frames will be available for you to choose from when you drop off your entry (frames are first-come, first-serve).

Submission requirements:

  • Limit 4 entries per person.
  • Frame and/or glass not required (but please stay within 6x6 or 5x7 panel).
  • Work must be for sale. There is no price limit. Gallery commission is 30% of sale price.
  • Photography is allowed, but must be mounted to panel (we can do this for you).
  • 3D/assemblage work is allowed - it must be attached to panel and able to hang on wall (and stay within 6x6 or 5x7 panel).
  • Plastic and clip frames will not be accepted.
  • See submission form for full details

The show will be hung salon-style and is cash-and-carry which means that as art sells, it leaves the gallery and new work is hung in its place. While this allows us to accept many pieces, the show is still curated based on uniqueness and presentation.
