You must provide a high resolution picture (300 dpi) of your Art. Selected artists will receive an agreement that specifies the length and frequency at which their Images are shown depending on the selection they made upon submission and space/media inventory permitting.
Please be mindful of how best to photograph your work of other mediums so as to showcase your art as best as possible. Please submit high quality SCANS or PHOTOS of JUST THE ARTWORK (no background environments visible, or angles of the art, no frames, straight-on shots only & no watermarks on photos!)
PLEASE NOTE: Artwork may be resized to accommodate name and artwork information.

How should I price my work?
AD ART SHOW includes works at many price points and our experience shows that this is a good policy. More established artists generally command higher prices in comparison to newer artists.

Our past exhibitions have featured works sold in the $500 to $2500 for emerging artists, and higher for more established artists.
