Portfolio review: Please choose one option

  1.   Request an appointment to have your work reviewed:
    We will contact you to schedule a time. Be prepared to bring 10 examples of your work (originals). This option is recommended if you feel images don't represent your work adequately. If you have never seen the gallery space, you are encouraged to visit.

  2. Send portfolio (requires mail-in form: click here):
    For individual exhibitors, 10 examples of work representative of what you plan to show; for groups of 3 or more exhibitors, 5-7 examples per person or a total of 18-20. If you want the materials returned to you, enclose a self-addressed envelope with adequate postage. Be sure to indicate the title, size, and media for each piece.
    The preferred format for submissions is a CD readable on a Windows computer. CD images must be in JPEG or TIFF format, and between 1MB and 5MB each. Within this file size limit, bear in mind the quality and clarity of the reproductions will impact how well your work can be seen and appreciated.
    Alternate formats are 35mm slides or photographs of your work. A link to online images is not adequate for purposes of this application, but may supplement it if you wish. A resume or other descriptive and/or biographical information is optional. Do not send reviews or press clippings. Do not send originals.

  3. After clicking the "Submit" button, use your browser's "Back" button to return to this page.
