Please crop any frame or background out of the photo to show only the artwork. If you need help taking photos of your work for submission, please contact  admin@openspaceartspwc.com to set up a shoot with one of our photographers. Our judges select pieces based on the images submitted, please ensure you take quality photos.

Image Formats: JPG                                             File Size: 5MB or less

Subject Matter: -Please refer to exhibition titles above for information on subject matter for each exhibit.  Reproductions on canvas or photographic copies of original two-dimensional artwork will not be accepted for display.

All artists take responsibility for their own original artwork - that the work has no copyright issues (to include plagiarized artificial intelligence-generated art). Neither Prince William County, Hirschel Group, or Edutainment Productions will assume responsibility for any lawsuit resulting from misuse of another artist’s work. 

All artworks must be for sale (no artwork is Not for Sale [NFS]). Checks for sold artwork will be disbursed at the end of the art exhibit with 30% of sales taken as a commission to Edutainment Productions and the remainder going to the artist.

Sculpture pieces are the responsibility of the artist for pickup, delivering and securing the art to the wall as needed.

Standard OSA framing and display requirements apply. Improperly wired paintings or artwork will not be accepted. All wires should be located at least 3 inches from the top edge of the work. Artwork must be submitted and ready to be hung. All unframed canvases must be gallery wrapped (or stapled on back) and the sides must be painted. Framed artwork on paper must be both matted and framed with a wire across the back.  All accepted entries will remain on exhibit until the exhibition closes. No early withdrawals will be permitted unless artwork is SOLD by OSA. Artists may replace SOLD pieces with another juried piece of similar size and quality or with an approved piece by the selection committee. 

Labeling: The artist is responsible for placing labels on the back of each accepted artwork. For hanging artwork, this would be located on the back of the piece. For sculptures, this would be on the bottom of the sculpture. Each such label must have the artist’s name, title, medium, size and price. If you are hanging a series then each piece of the series must be marked on the back to indicate the hanging order with left/right, top/bottom, A, B, C, D or 1, 2, 3, 4, as appropriate.

OSA will print labels to display for the public viewing.

LARGE WORKS OSA MAIN GALLERY

A maximum of 25 pieces of art per entrant for the Main Gallery. Maximum size of artwork is 100x100 inches. Diptychs, triptychs and quadriptychs are acceptable up to four pieces per series. Series of works that can be grouped as one unit (or themed works) must be labelled. Each piece of a series will count toward the total number, whether sold as a group or priced to sell individually. Mark the back of the canvas for the order to hang as needed. Submit these as attachments to admin@openspaceartspwc.com. Make sure your image has a background when photographed, do not crop your artwork or use a digital background, it will prevent the judges from seeing the size and quality of your work.
