At Grand Gallery we feel that considering new artists is very important and we give these considerations great care. We are always interested in seeing new work, but because of the volume of submissions we receive we ask you follow the following guidelines to insure that your work is given a thorough review.
First, take a detailed look at our website or visit our galleries to understand the type of work we exhibit. Once you have some understanding of our direction, and you honestly feel your work would be appropriate for us, you may send a submission using these guidelines:
Please submit recent photographs, digital images on CD or DVD, or a website address only. We do not accept slides. When submitting materials, please mark your envelope “Artist Submission” and mail it to:
596 Ada Drive
Ada, MI 49301
Provide the following with your submission:
1. Representations of your work: High quality images(duplicates only, please don’t send originals). Each image should be labeled with the artist’s name, title of work, date, gallery price, medium and dimensions. Please limit your submission to 10 images.
2. Cover letter.
4. Artist Statement.
5. Self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE), with sufficient return postage. IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE A SASE WE WILL NOT RETURN YOUR SUBMISSION! Because of the volume of submissions, we prefer to return your materials by mail. Do not come by the gallery to pick up your materials unless you call first to make an appointment.
We receive numerous submissions and review them on an on-going basis in the order that they arrive. IT GENERALLY TAKES 3-6 WEEKS TO REVIEW YOUR SUBMISSION AND WE WILL NOTIFY YOU WHEN WE HAVE COMPLETED THE REVIEW PROCESS.
If you have had a change of address, please notify us by phone or email. If we send materials to the address you have provided and they are returned to us, we will dispose of the materials.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL OR EMAIL regarding the status of your materials, as we will respond to those submissions as soon as they have been reviewed.
The gallery will not view any portfolios without an appointment and incomplete submissions will not be taken into consideration.
