This competition is open to all artists working with or incorporating encaustic and/or wax media, including cold wax and mixed media. There is no stated theme, although the juror may at his discretion select work around a theme he discerns from the submitted entries.
Only one (1) piece per artist may be selected for the exhibition. Do not send 'detail' images of paintings. ALL PAINTINGS MUST BE FOR SALE. Artists can enter up to 3 (three) images with a maximum size restriction of artwork being 24 inches x 24 inches for 2-d work, and 24 inches in any direction for 3-d work. 3-D work may be pedestal or floor based. Artists will receive 55% of final sale, 35% will be retained by the Museum, and 10% will be paid to IEA. Shipping costs of sold artwork will be the responsibility of the buyer.
This is an open call. The primary medium must be encaustic or cold wax and all work must be for sale.
Members of IEA will pay an entry fee of $10, and nonmembers will pay an entry fee of $35. Up to three pieces may be submitted. Entries must be submitted online via Entrythingy.com by 12 midnight PST Friday, November 16, 2018.
Submission of work to this exhibition constitutes an agreement to the conditions stated in this prospectus and a commitment to show accepted work for the duration of the exhibition.
The Museum reserves the right to reject any artwork that does not meet the standards shown in the images supplied. No substitutions are allowed. To be exhibited, entries must be ready to hang or display.
Artwork Requirements: Both 2D and 3D art will be considered including painting, prints, mixed media, sculpture and artists books made with encaustic or cold wax media and techniques. Encaustic or cold wax must be the primary media in the finished art work. Work no larger than 24 inches in any direction may be submitted. The gallery can accommodate hanging works that are wired and ready for hanging (no sawtooth hangers will be accepted), and can provide pedestals for sculptural work. Sculptural work may at the artist's discretion be displayed from the floor rather than a pedestal.
