The Switchboard’s 1st Annual Haverhill 101 Small Works Show

Posted Sunday, Sept 15th, 2018

DETAILS:

~ Please read the following carefully before submitting. Due to the anticipated participation and the intimate size of our gallery, we’re asking that you limit your submissions to 2-3 pieces, each measuring less than 12 x 12”, including frame (this is a small works show, after all!). We are accepting all mediums of artwork, including high-quality prints. The Switchboard reserves the right to not include artwork if we run out of space or if we feel it’s not up to the caliber of the rest of the works.

IMPORTANT DATES:

~ MONDAY, OCTOBER 8TH, 2018 BY 5:00PM: Electronic submissions are due and can be made by emailing us at theswitchboardhaverhill@gmail.com with the subject line “2018 SW Entry”. Please include the following:

  • Artist Name

  • Images of your work

  • Title of Artwork(s)

  • Size and Date of your piece(s)

  • Medium

  • Website (if you have one, but not in lieu of images)

  • ARTIST PRICE (see below)

~ Pricing: Please indicate the amount you would like for your work. The Switchboard will add on our 40% commission plus MA state sales tax to arrive at the Final/Wall price. Formula as follows: Artist price + 40% Commission + 6.25% MA Sales Tax = Final / Wall price. Example: $100 + $40 + $8.75 = $148.75. Wall prices always end in 5 or 0, so we would round this to $150 wall price.

~ THURSDAY, OCT 11th: Notifications are sent to artists regarding participation. A standard gallery contract will be emailed to accepted artists at this time.

~ SATURDAY, OCT 20th BY 1:00PM: Deadline for work drop off. Artists are encouraged to drop off their work during our normal gallery hours, Thursdays 5-8pm or Saturday 10-1. If this is not possible, please arrange for a separate time by emailing Sarah at theswitchboardhaverhill@gmail.com.

~ FRIDAY, NOV 2nd, 6-8pm: Opening reception for 1st Annual Haverhill 101 Small Works Show

~ The show will run a little longer than our usual 6 weeks to coincide with the full holiday shopping season, Haverhill’s Holiday Stroll on Friday, Dec 7th, and to promote retail opportunities for walking traffic downtown Haverhill. The show will close on Thurs, Dec 27th and notifications will be sent out for work pick up dates.
