ART MAUI 2011 EXHIBITION ENTRY RULES
Please read carefully. There are changes since last year.
- Entrants must be current residents of Maui County, eighteen years of age or older.
- All Art Maui entries must be original and have been created within the last two years independently and without supervision. Works executed in a workshop under another artist’s supervision are not eligible.
- Works may not have been exhibited in any venue in Maui County. If any number within an edition has been shown, no other duplicate piece within the edition may be entered.
PREPARATION OF ENTRIES
- All entries must be finished and ready for display on arrival for Receiving Day.
- No wet works will be accepted.
- No varnishing or touch-up after submission.
- Two-dimensional work must be properly framed, mounted and wired. Wires only, no “saw tooth” hangers.
- Wrapped canvas is permitted on paintings provided the edges are painted.
- Multi-panel—diptychs (2) and triptychs (3)—works will be juried as one piece.
- No installations.
- Art with audio must have volume control.
- Electronic/digital artworks must be completely operational with the flick of a switch or be “plug and play” ready. Artists are responsible for any peripheral devices (e.g., electrical cords, tape, etc.)
- Heavy sculptures should be well balanced and able to stand freely. Sculptures with display bases should be secured and works must be delivered on a dolly to facilitate moving during jurying.
- Giclees and other reproduction methods will only be accepted for two-dimensional artwork like photography or computer generated art that requires printing to complete and present the finished piece. No reproductions of any original artworks or any 3D art will be allowed.
- Art Maui assumes no responsibility for live plants submitted as part of a work. Artist must maintain any plants throughout the exhibit.
- If these criteria are not met, your piece may be disqualified before jurying with no refund.
- Artists may submit a total of two works; cost per entry is $20.00. Works will be juried by an independent juror, and the decision of the juror is final. There are no refunds of the entry fee(s).
- Art Maui reserves the right to refuse any entry that presents complex exhibition or assembly problems due to excessive size, weight, or difficulty in presentation. If in doubt, contact Art Maui prior to submitting.
- Artists are responsible for delivery and pick-up of their work. Works must be taken directly to and from the Art Maui receiving area. Displaying work elsewhere on MACC property is not allowed.
