General PCFA Submission Guidelines:
With the mission of supporting emerging, or under-recognized mid-career contemporary artists, the Danforth Gallery is committed to showing a wide range of thought-provoking new work in a variety of styles and mediums. From February through December the Danforth curates invitational shows and open group exhibitions.
STYLE AND GENRE
We seek contemporary, fine art in all mediums (glass, stone, ceramic, wood, charcoal, paint, ink, mixed media, photography, video), and all dimensions, so long as it can fit through our door. We do not exhibit artwork that is in classical, Western, or wildlife traditions, although wildlife and Western subject matter depicted in a non-classical manner may be considered.
The gallery space, located at 106 North Main Street, is in a 1903 brick building with oak floors and natural and gallery light. The unobstructed exhibition room in the front of the building has approximately 706-square feet of floor space with 130-inch high walls. Door dimensions: 79 ½ by 40 inches.
All work exhibited in the Danforth is for sale. The gallery retains 40% and gives 60% to the artist. We pay artists within 30 days of their show. Shows are marketed regionally in print, on the radio, on the web, and through social networking. All work is insured once it’s within the walls of the Danforth Gallery, but not while being shipped. Artists are responsible for all shipping costs to and from the Gallery. This includes the cost any shipping insurance the artist requires.
Please clearly name the title of the show to which you are submitting work. If you do not feel that your work fits into any of the open shows in our exhibits schedule, then you may submit it for consideration in the yet undefined upcoming exhibit year. At the discretion of the curators, artwork that does not fit into one of the open shows may be considered for inclusion in a juried exhibit, but artists may not directly apply for curated shows.
