The objective of the Originals Only shows is to provide visual artists, specifically painters and sculptors with the opportunity to showcase their work in an environment where they can learn from each other and invite the general public to engage in a cultural experience.
The event is focused on artists who work with traditional mediums to produce two and three dimensional art in realistic, abstract, impressionistic, contemporary, expressionistic and modern styles .
Acceptable work for the Originals Only Show
Acceptance into the show for painters is based on the use of oils, acrylics, watercolours, inks, graphite, pastel, charcoal, conte, encaustic, tempera, carbon, gauche, coloured pencil and watercolour pencil as these are applied to paper, canvas and prepared art boards. Printmaking is allowed providing the prints are hand pulled and the run remains under 100. For sculptors, acceptance is based on the use of stone, wood, clay and metal to create contemporary, realistic or abstract works.
Unacceptable work for the Originals Only Show
As the show is designed specifically for painters and sculptors, no other art forms will be accepted. Not accepted work includes works that are classified as folk art, decorative art, fabric art, needlepoint, tapestry or craft.
The show is limited to original work produced by artists who use the accepted mediums and materials as outlined in the Rules and Regulations. It is important that each artist applying to exhibit understands the parameters that have been established and what is classified as acceptable.
