MMAG Member Small Works Show – 2020 at Shiawassee Art Center – 206 Curwood Castle Drive, Owosso, MI

Closing Reception:  cancelled. The show will be visible online at

The MMAG Member Small Works Show is open without a fee to members who have paid dues for 2019-2020.

Eligibility/Exhibit Requirements – 2D and 3D works are eligible.  SIZE is to be no larger than 14” in any direction including frame.  This is a judged show.

Members who did NOT pick up their art from the NEC show and did not make arrangements for someone else to pick up their work are NOT eligible for this show.

Work must be original, conceived and created solely by the artist, and not exhibited in a previous judged Guild show.  Artwork created in an instructional setting, including but not limited to workshops and art classes, is not eligible for submission.  No direct copying of stock images, historic photos, or of any reference to which you do not have permission from the photographer or holder of the copyright.  However, using such images in a piece (eg. collage) where those images have been significantly transformed is allowed.

Copies and reproductions of original works of art, whether embellished or not, are not eligible for submission. However, prints such as photographs, lithographs, woodcuts, engravings, etching, screen prints, and digital works are acceptable as long as they are labeled as such.

Each member may submit 1 (one) piece. All entries must be dry, framed or have a gallery-wrapped edge, and 2D work must be wired for hanging (no sawtooth hangers!)  The Guild and SAC reserve the right to decline any work that does not meet the above requirements.  Work must remain at Shiawassee Art Center for the entire show and all work MUST be for sale.

No work will be accepted at check-in that has not been registered by the deadline.  Sorry, no walk-ins.  Registration allows the committee to pre-print tags and plan for space requirements, and is required prior to check-in for the show.

Exhibit Calendar
Registration deadline: March 10, noon  (Registration opens February 10.)
Mon, March 16:  Check-in 9 am–Noon at SAC (Check-in time has been expanded so people won’t all be there at once.)

If you cannot make the posted times, please arrange for someone to deliver/pick up your work.  No other times will be available.  Work brought in early will not be eligible for judging.  Artists whose work is left after pickup will not be eligible for the next MMAG show.

Shiawassee Art Center and MMAG will take all precautions to safeguard your work, but neither can be responsible for the loss or any damage to your work. You are responsible for insuring your artwork if you wish.
