For more information, refer to Section 4 (Check-In and Artist Packet) and Sections 14-15 (regarding Delivery, Shipping, and Pick-up of artwork), of this Prospectus. 

4)  Check-In and Artist Packet:

For artists delivering their work on Wednesday, during the formal check in process, our trained festival volunteers will guide you, step-by-step, through the process. Your Artist Packet will include:

  • Triplicate copies for each piece of artwork accepted into the show
  • (One) artist ticket for entry to the Friday night opening gala celebration
  • Name tag and lanyard (also serves as your admission to the Night of the Quick Draw)
  • Event Program – listing time and details of other events occurring during the Festival
  • Additional tickets to the Friday night Opening Reception (ONLY if you purchased them in advance)

Each art piece will be confirmed as the piece accepted and checked for appropriate framing requirements.  A pre-printed identification tag (one of the triplicate copies in your packet) with the artist's name, title of the piece and price will be attached to the piece and a second copy given to the artist.  You must keep this receipt copy, as it will be required, in order to pick up your unsold work at the conclusion of the show.  If you plan to have someone else pick up your work, make sure they have this receipt.  Unsold work will not be released without this receipt.

 

5)  Framing and Presentation Requirements:

  • All work that is intended to be "hung" for display MUST be fitted with a secure wire for hanging.  We strongly suggest framing two-dimensional works for optimal presentation.  If you're producing works on canvas or other surfaces and do not plan to use framing around the work, you must appropriately finish the sides of your piece.  Work that is unfinished (such as exposed staples, untrimmed canvas, dirty sides, or lacking appropriate treatments) will not be displayed in the show.  Bracket frames, Uni-frames, rings, zigger and sawtooth type mountings are not acceptable.
  • When attaching wire to your piece, we suggest placing your attachment in the upper 1/3 of the piece. This will insure that the piece does not tilt outward at the top when hung.
  • Glass and Plexiglas must be properly secured. 
  • Work that does not meet the standards of quality identified in this prospectus, or, upon arrival, is not consistent with the intent of the show, will not be displayed.

6)  Sale of Art:

  • All exhibited art will be available for sale and all sales of artwork will be handled through the Festival sales desk.
  • The price you assign to your artwork in the online entry process is the price we will use.  We will not accept price changes once your piece has been accepted.
  • The Festival will retain a 25% commission on all sales resulting from the exhibition.  Please note that, due to the all-volunteer nature of our Wallowa Valley Festival of Arts, it may take up to 6 weeks for all payment checks (for both art sale proceeds, as well as award/prize payouts) to be generated and sent out.  We will make every effort to get those checks out to artists sooner, but please anticipate this possible timeline. Thanks for your understanding and patience.

7)  Awards:

  • Cash awards and ribbons, totaling more than $4,500, will be given at the discretion of the judge.
  • Monetary prizes will be awarded for 1st Place ($125x7), 2nd Place ($75x7), Honorable Mention ($50x7), Best of Show ($500), People's Choice - overall ($300), Director's Choice ($200), Best Amateur Photography ($300), People's Choice Photography ($300), Best Three-Dimensional Art ($300), Northwest Cultural Heritage Award ($300), Northwest Region Landscape Award ($200), Jon M. Skovlin Memorial For Best Wildlife Representation ($200), and Best Silent Auction Piece ($50).

Art that receives an award will be photographed for use in promoting the Art Festival.  Please see the Art Festival website for the full privacy statement and opt-out procedure.

8)  Judge, 2017:

Each year, a new judge is selected to assist in the judging of the show.  Awards and ribbons are given at the discretion of the judge, excluding Best Photography, People's Choice Photography and Director's Choice.  This year, we are pleased to announce the distinguished artist, Bonnie Griffith, as our 2017 judge.  For more information on this year's judge, visit our festival website www.wallowavalleyarts.org, or visit Bonnie's website www.bonniegriffith.com

 9)  Silent Auction:

  • Accepted artists are invited to enter one small piece of artwork in our silent auction.  An auction piece is not required as a condition to exhibit in the Festival
  • Participating artists will receive 50% of the final bid; the remaining 50% will be retained by the festival to support future shows
  • With respect to framing and display, all silent auction pieces must meet the same criteria as juried work(s)
  • Artists will assign the market value of the piece and the minimum bid will be established at 25% of the established market value (for example: if the piece is valued at $100, then the starting bid for that piece would be $25) 
  • If the minimum bid is not met, then the piece is returned to the artist
  • The original value of the piece will not be revealed on the bid sheet, nor will viewers be informed of the starting bid ratio
  • We recommend auction pieces have an assigned value of no more than $200.  If an artist does not assign a market value, the Festival Committee will estimate one
  • All silent auction pieces will be prominently displayed and a cash award given for "Best Silent Auction Piece"

This workshop is planned for those artists who are wanting to learn about a pastel process and who have not had much if any experience in the medium.  Bonnie will provide paper for you to use for the workshop.  Please bring soft pastels such as Rembrandt's or other professional grade pastels, if you have them.  If you do not, and you want to purchase some, Bonnie will have some available to purchase (Mungyo set from Jerry's Artarama:  $10-$15).  Also bring an easel and drawing board, apron, latex gloves and paper towels or old, clean cotton rags. 

We will be working outside, at the Joseph Community Center, under a tent.  Most important, come prepared to have fun and take away a few new ideas about pastel painting!

Bonnie will have a handout of her notes for attendees, so have a pen to take extra notes.  She will start out with a demo/talk during the first 45 minutes-1 hour.  The rest of the time will be spent with students painting.

 

Class is Limited to 12 Participants (register directly through Bonnie)
$50/person
