Artists from along the Oregon Coast are being invited to submit works for display in the Oregon Coast Online Art Show, which will run from May 29 through September 7 at the Newport Visual Arts Center.
“[Oregon Coast Council for the Arts] intends for this to be a significant survey of Oregon coast artists, as well as artists from throughout Oregon,” said Newport Visual Arts Center Director Tom Webb. “And we encourage the community to support the arts and individual artists by bringing home an original piece of work for their homes or offices.”
The Oregon Coast Online Art Show will be entirely organized and presented remotely. Artists will email photos of their artwork and related information to the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts. Artists are limited to one artwork per person, though sold works can be replaced with another work. The exhibit is open to two- and three-dimensional works.
Photos of submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org along with artwork name, medium, dimensions, price, artist’s name, town and a short bio. Artists should include one to three PNG, JPG or TIF photos, with at least one photo showing the work in its entirety. Preferred photo resolution is 300dpi, with a total file size between 2 and 16 MB. Artists’ bios should not exceed 20 words, and statements about work should not exceed 12 words. When emailing submissions, artists should include “Oregon Coast Online Art Show” in the subject line. For more information and the complete exhibit guidelines, contact Webb at email@example.com or 541-265-6569. The show’s guidelines can also be downloaded from the coastarts.org website: https://coastarts.org/events/online-art-show-cfp.
Exhibit items must be for sale, with a minimum sale price of $50. Works must be original or part of a limited-edition series. No reproductions, cards, posters or books. OCCA will retain a 50 percent commission on sold work.
“The Oregon Coast Online Art Show is a way for OCCA to support coastal artists and friends and to encourage the public to support visual artists in this challenging arts environment,” said OCCA Executive Director Catherine Rickbone. “We must remember the arts give our lives meaning and can be a source of hope and inspiration.”
