Image Requirements

Each entry should include a high resolution JPEG image of the artwork. All images cannot exceed 25MB. Please name your image files as follows: LAST NAME_ENTRY NUMBER_TITLE (example for Image #1: Walters_1_Ray of Sunshine). Depending on the application, you may submit a detail or installation photo.

Annmarie reserves the right to use the information in all application materials for publicity purposes. Annmarie reserves the right to reject any accepted work that significantly differs from the entry images. 


Artist Statement and Resume

All applicants can submit a brief artist statement of no more than 750 words.  This artist statement will be displayed in the exhibit on artwork label. 


Medium and Presentation

Eligible media and type of artwork may vary with each call for entry and will be outlined on application.

Presentation choices are determined as an extension of the artwork. We respect the creative decisions of each artist. All works (framed or otherwise) need to arrive outfitted with standard hardware/fasteners for installation as appropriate to the work. Artists are responsible for framing. Simple, non-ornate frames of a neutral color (wood, white, black, etc.) are preferred. Paintings do not have to be framed but must be gallery wrapped with hardware for installation (two D-rings installed at equal measurements on the back side of the stretcher bar works best, but wire is also acceptable). Flat works may be matted and/or framed under glass or Plexiglas.



Annmarie Garden insures all works of art in our exhibits for the fair market value.  Insurance coverage begins when works of art are unpacked and ends on the final day of exhibit, or when artwork is picked-up for return by carrier, whichever comes first.  Detailed insurance information will be provided in the loan form.


Cash Awards

Annmarie will present cash awards to outstanding work.  Jurors will review installed works in person or virtually (not application images) for award selection.  If possible, selection will occur prior to the exhibit opening and awards will be presented at the Annmarie After Hours Opening Reception.  Award amounts are contingent upon funding. 


Annmarie After Hours Openings

We celebrate the opening of each exhibit with a reception called Annmarie After Hours, which is typically held on a Friday evening from 5 – 8 pm.  Annmarie After Hours is a casual adult evening of great art, wine, beer, light hors d’oeuvres, and live music.  The sculpture garden will remain open with extended hours, taking full advantage of the exceptional venue.  Each artist will enjoy complimentary admission.
