Over the last year, based on conversations with many artists, a steering committee evaluated options for streamlining the juried exhibition process and has decided to employ online submission. We have chosen callforentry.org (CaFE) for the submission process because of its ease of use.

For those who need assistance with this process, we will be offering optional free workshops to help with any of the following: photographing your submission, editing the submission image, creating a CaFE profile/ portfolio and applying to our exhibition. See prospectus for details.

Some artists may wish to keep things simple and take a picture with their iphone or ipad.

Here are some tips if you wish to photograph your work at home: 

iPhone Instructions
iPhones use the .JPG extention in the default file name (and not .jpg). The rotation information is not fully saved in the .JPG extention when viewed in a browser. (In other words, your images will appear rotated on your computer but then be sideways when viewed after it is uploaded). In order to FULLY save the rotation, use a "save as" command, after rotating the image in your editing software, and change the extention to .jpg. It is not enough to just rename the file, you must change the extention to .jpg when saving it. 

*Please keep in mind that using an iPhone is most likely the easiest way to upload your image. Be sure take the image straight on, the art should not be behind glass to prevent glare, and use a solid color background to help with cropping.*
