CONDITIONS & REQUIREMENTS

There is no theme for the show.

Commissions from sales will be divided with 60% to the artist, 20% to VASBCS, 20% to DEGALLERY.

All works sold and unsold must remain in the show until the closing date. Any works removed early will result in the artist being banned from any future shows. 

All art must be picked up during the allotted time unless special arrangements have been made ahead of time.

2D pieces longer than 60” on any side (including frame) will not be accepted. No more than one 60” work will be accepted from any entrant.

Any works which are politically, religiously or sexually charged will not be accepted.  

Images of the entry/entries must be submitted by jpg, jpeg files (SRGB or RGB profile, no larger than 4 MB) for jurying into the show. Uploading of images is part of the entry process and more information is provided on the entry form. Your images should be sharp & clear. Your images must not include matting or framing, only the piece of art itself. It is important that your work be well represented. Images of accepted works may be posted on the VAS website along with award winning artists from the show. By entering you grant permission to VAS reproduce the artwork in the
marketing materials or on the VAS website, for promotional and educational purposes.

VAS reserves the right to refuse to show any entry not accurately represented by the images submitted during entry or not suitably presented for exhibition. 

Accepted entries for the show must be wired properly for hanging so the hanging committee does not have problems. If any of the pieces are extremely heavy or particularly fragile in framing, they will not be included in the exhibit without advanced special arrangements with the hanging committee. No saw tooth hangers or clip on frames will be accepted. All artwork must be completely dry and ready to hang or display when submitted during intake for the show/exhibit. VAS reserves the right to exclude works from the exhibition that are not gallery-ready and professional in presentation.

All sculptures/pottery must have a stable base.

Drawings and pastels must be under glass or acrylic.

The following information must be attached to back of the art work: Artist Name, Mailing Address, Phone, Email, Selling Price, Title, Medium & Category.  This label form may be downloaded and used but is not required.

Artists are responsible for all delivery, pick up and insurance for the works submitted. 

WHAT IS MY FEE USED FOR?

The Brazos Valley Art League, dba Visual Art Association of Bryan-College Station, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization operated by volunteers who are artists and art appreciators, for artists, with no reserve or endowment. All proceeds from entry fees fund project-related expenses. Not unlike paying a fee to enter a marathon race, your entry fee democratically enables our organization’s projects to happen. For over a 50 years the Visual Art Association has earned a reputation for producing quality exhibits, benefitting the artists involved and the public, on its meager budget. Our all volunteer board of directors and small dedicated team of members work hard to make involvement with VAS projects well worth the effort and cost to do so.

Simply by participating in a VAS project or becoming a member you are helping this grass-roots organization do its work and achieve its mission.

HOW TO ENTER

All entries must be submitted online using the correct form. Entry fee is $30 for up to 3 entries and $20 for 3 more entries for a maximum of 6 entries per member. If you wish to enter more than 3, make sure submit and pay for entries 1-3 then return here to submit the second form.

Assistance with Online Entry Submissions

If you need assistance photographing your work and/submitting the registration form, we offer help by appointment. Email webmaster@visualartsociety.org to make an appointment for assistance either in person at DEGALLERY or over the phone.
