Entry Procedure (rules):
1. Complete and sign the entry form provided. Download the .pdf <here>
2. Bring your work to Patrick Moore Gallery on Saturday, August 11 between the hours of noon and 5:00 PM. If you are unable to make it at that time, please make arrangements with Nolan Baumgartner (firstname.lastname@example.org).
3. You may submit up to 3 works, no more than one may be a set of multiple pieces (due to space constraints in the gallery). Sets must be sold as such (they may not be broken up and sold individually).
4. Bring a $25 check for the entry amount. You can also pay for any past dues not paid for this year ($45 regular member, $25 student member). We will also be able to accept credit cards, if that is more convenient.
5. Bring a one-page bio of yourself. Please format it 8 ½ by 11 in portrait orientation. Include a short bio of you (what you do, if other than making pots full time, and some information about your work). It should also include an artist statement (where applicable) and information about your making and firing processes. This is to help Patrick and his staff inform patrons about your work.
6. Please note that there is a small chance that one of your pieces may be “juried out” due to the limited space. We will do our best to get it all in.
7. All work must be for sale. Please note that the gallery takes 40% of the retail price as commission, so make sure you take that into consideration.
