Call for Entries General Guidelines

Exhibitions are open to artists residing in the United States.

The Gallery reserves the right to reject works from exhibitions, including works that are deemed extraordinarily fragile, unstable, or potentially harmful to the work or the viewer.

 See each individual Call for Entries listing for art specific eligibility guidelines.

Accepted Works
Art must be properly presented and prepared for display. Wall pieces must include all hardware and be ready to hang. Necessary assembly and mounting instructions and materials must be included with accepted works.

Accepted artwork that differs significantly from the submitted image will be disqualified.

No accepted entry may be withdrawn prior to the close of the exhibition.

Upon selection, artists will provide the Gallery with a bio, artist statement and title card information, including title, materials, dimensions and sale price of selected work.

The Gallery reserves the right to photograph and use submitted image of any accepted artwork in all publicity for the current show and future exhibitions, educational and Gallery promotional materials. Artist will be credited, as well as any photo credit for the reproduction of images.

Artists are responsible for all shipping and transit insurance costs to and from the Gallery. The Gallery does not insure works in transit.

PREPAID RETURN SHIPPING LABELS must be submitted either with the work or on-line before the last day of the exhibition. Do not use a shipping request form with a shipping account number or credit card number. This is not a prepaid shipping label. If a prepaid return shipping label is not received or arrangements made with the Gallery Director, the artwork will not be returned, and will be dealt with at the discretion of the Gallery, including selling or disposal.

Shipping packaging and artwork must be clearly marked to identify the artist, and packaging must be re-usable for the return shipping, and include re-packing and installation instructions as necessary.

Every reasonable precaution will be taken with the handling of Artwork. All Artwork to be shown at the LH Horton Jr Gallery will be insured against fire, theft, and other hazards at the LH Horton Jr Gallery while in the possession of the Gallery, from the time of receipt through the time of setup and Exhibition. San Joaquin Delta College and the LH Horton Jr Gallery cannot be held responsible for damages to Artwork during shipping, and therefore insurance will not cover Artwork in transit. Artwork damaged while in possession of the Gallery will be evaluated for reparability. If Artwork is deemed repairable, insurance claims will be based on the cost to repair Artwork in addition to documented value. If Artwork is deemed non-reparable, insurance claims will be based on the documented value of Artwork. Documented value of Artwork is based on prior recorded sale price of similar Artwork.

Sale of Artwork
All accepted works must be for sale during the show, with the exception of installation works as approved by the Gallery Director. The Gallery is responsible for all sales, and will retain a 20% commission from the sale of artwork.
