Maximum size is 55" wide, 84" long; no minimum size.

Entry Fees and Submission Procedures
$25.00 for three works; $10 for each additional work entered.

We are no longer accepting slides. All images must be on a CD in jpg format. No PowerPoint presentations, please. For each work entered, submit two digital images, one full view and one detail. All images can be on one CD labeled with artist’s name. CDs will not be returned.

Accepted artists will be asked to submit additional information and an artist
statement. We reserve the right to reject entries that were not accurately
represented by the images.

The Carnegie Center for Art & History will insure all works from the time they arrive on site until they leave our premises.

Display and Sale
All work must be received ready for hanging, including the hanging rod. We encourage artists to offer their works for sale; the Carnegie Center, Inc. will retain a 25% commission on any sales and reserves the right to use artists’ images for publicity purposes.
