Bare Form Prospectus

Possible Bare Form Image 2

BARE FORM 2017

 

The beauty and lines of the human form has inspired artists from the dawn of history yet remains an inextricable part of the human experience.  Our intimate familiarity with the human body bears the challenge to the artist…..transforming that which is known into an expression of emotion.

Morgantown, WV 26507

Guidelines/Conditions:

All art should be your depiction of the bare human form.  No art submitted for exhibition should be deprecating toward the model/subject of the piece.  

 

Each piece of wall art must be framed appropriately and have a secure wire for hanging (no string and duct tape please).  The only unframed exceptions are a finished edge canvas or sculpture.  Additionally, each submission must be labeled with:  Artist’s name, address, telephone numbers, email, title, medium, selling price or NFS (use labels on Page 3).  Artwork that was exhibited in a previous Bare Form exhibition is ineligible and will be rejected.

 

The artist grants permission to the MAC to reproduce any accepted entries for the purpose of publicity.

 

An entry to this exhibition constitutes full agreement on the part of the artist to all conditions outlined in this prospectus.  The Monongalia Arts Center reserves the right to reject any art deemed inappropriate or that does not meet MAC criteria (this includes framing).  The MAC has final authority to define an acceptable entry.  MAC is not responsible for damages or theft of work displayed in the Gallery or left on the premises beyond the designated pick-up date; therefore, it is suggested that artists carry their own insurance.

 

Absolutely no early removal of artwork is permitted for any reason.
