Work must be original, conceived and created 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 hold total copyright is allowed. 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 and wired for hanging (no sawtooth hangers!) with a label attached to the back of the artwork including your name, the title, media, and price.  The Guild reserves the right to decline any work that does not meet the above requirements.
 

Also, Absolute Gallery reserves the right to decline any artwork they consider unacceptable.  Work must remain at Absolute Gallery for the entire show, and ALL work MUST be for sale.

Absolute Gallery 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.

Absolute Gallery  will take a commission of 40% on sales.

If you cannot make the posted times, arrange for someone to deliver/pick up your work. We will not be responsible for your work. Work dropped off early (unless your piece is at already at the gallery being framed by Absolute Gallery) will NOT be eligible for judging. Artists who do not pick their work on time are NOT eligible to enter the next MMAG show.

ALL WORK MUST BE REGISTERED BEFORE CHECK IN. No work will be accepted at check-in that has not been registered by the deadline. Sorry, no walk-ins. Registration allows the gallery to preprint tags and plan for space requirements, and is required prior to check-in for the show. Registration DEADLINE is Tuesday, December 21, 2021, 5pm.
