  1. Wow, it seems like a good idea, until you read the fine print. All responsibility falls on the artist, i.e administration fee, postage to and from the exhibition, insurance, etc. There is no responsibility from the curator’s side at all. I think I’ll give it a miss. 🙂

    1. Chris….this is pretty much “standard operating procedure” for exhibitions….the $30 fee is actually quite good and if you want to exhibit you do have to get your piece to the gallery. My understanding is that this is quite a prestigious group sponsoring this exhibition and if you are interested in promoting your personal art then this would be an excellent event to try for entry. They have never had anything like rugcrafting materials in their shows before so maybe one or two hookers will catch their eye!
      It’s always up to you to decide if you want to show your work at all but even your local craft fair will probably have entry criteria, fees, insurance and postage or delievery requirements.
      I’m going to try and submit a piece if I can get organised soon!
