JURORS:

Allison Brant, Director of The Brant Foundation Art Study Center

Allison has been director of The Brant Foundation Art Study Center in Greenwich, Connecticut since 2009.  She has overseen 16 exhibitions with contemporary artists such as Urs Fischer, Julian Schnabel, Rob Pruitt, Nate Lowman and Dash Snow.  The Brant Foundation mission is to promote education and appreciation of contemporary art and design, by making works available to institutions and individuals for scholarly study and examination.

The Brant Foundation presents long-term exhibitions curated primarily from the collection. The collection is remarkable in that scores of artists are represented in depth, including works from the earliest period of their practice through their most recent works.

Specifications:
Work delivered to the gallery must be installation-ready. Non-traditional photographic works and two-dimensional form and photographic wall sculptures must be wired or cleated for hanging. We use the Walker hanging system (nails and screws are not drilled into the walls). Work must remain on exhibit for the entire show. Following the pickup dates after the close of the show, there will be storage charge of $10/day for any work left at the gallery. Note: We prefer to receive works framed in white, natural wood, or black frames with white or ivory tone mattes. Saw tooth hangers and small wire loops on the back of inexpensive frames are not acceptable along with scratched glass or plexi-glass, poorly constructed frames and poorly cut mats. We reserve the right to reject any work whose presentation is sub-standard.

Sales:
For any works sold, artists receive 60% of the sale price before tax. The Carriage Barn Arts Center and New Canaan Society for the Arts retains the remaining 40% as a transaction fee.

Copyright Policy:

Each artist retains all copyrights to their submitted images.

Image Usage Rights:

Artist’s recognition is provided with any use. By submission for jurying, artists whose submissions are chosen for the exhibition grant The Carriage Barn Arts Center the right to use their images for the purpose of promoting the artist, promoting the Center’s programs, promoting exhibitions and subsequent display on the Center’s website of current and past exhibitions. Promotions and images may also be placed on social networks with artist credit.

Honors and Awards:
All selected artwork will be exhibited in the Carriage Barn, in an online exhibit on the Carriage Barn Arts Center website.  Exhibiting photographers and Carriage Barn members are invited to the opening reception where awards will be presented in various categories.
