Submissions for the Members’ Juried Show
Eligibility. The Members’ Juried Show is open to all members of the Edina Art Center. Works accepted into previous EAC Juried Shows are not eligible. (Crosstown Camera Club members in good standing are considered members of the Edina Art Center)

Media. You many enter an unlimited number of works in any media. Enter actual work — no slides.

Medium Conditions . All two-dimensional artwork must be framed, including wrapped canvas, and ready to hang with wire. Watercolor, pastels and photographs must be under glass or Plexiglas. Artwork must be original. Copies of published photos are not acceptable. Work done in the classroom must be executed solely by the student.

Size . Maximum size of two-dimensional work is 40 inches in any direction. Sculptural and ceramic work must fit through a three-foot-by-seven-foot door and weigh less than 150 pounds.

Entry Fees . Entry fee is $10 per entry or $25 for three entries, payable to the Edina Art Center. Include total payment with registration form. Entry fee is non-refundable.

Delivery of Artwork . Each entry must have an identification label attached to the back upper left-hand corner or to the base of three-dimensional work.

Insurance . Every reasonable care will be taken in handling work submitted, but no responsibility is assumed by the Edina Art Center for loss or damage. Artists desiring to insure their works must make their own arrangements.

Sales . Sales of artwork will be handled by the Edina Art Center for a 35 percent commission. If work is not for sale, mark “NFS” on the entry form, but note value.

Judging . Entries will be judged and displayed without regard to media groups. All entries will be displayed and the best work in the judges’ opinion, regardless of medium, will be shown in the Foss Gallery. The Edina Art Center, however, reserves the right to reject any work based on suitability.

Awards . Up to $750 in cash awards will be given to selected winners, including the Betsy Bryant Pottery Award for outstanding ceramic work.
