Entry Form

Now in its 36th year, the Carriage Barn Arts Center calls for works in photography to be considered for our annual show by guest Juror Jan Nagle, Artist and Program Associate, the Center for Photography at Woodstock. Much like the Carriage Barn, the Center for Photography at Woodstock is a not-for-profit that was founded in 1977, and remains an artist-centered organization dedicated to supporting artists working in photography and related media and engaging audiences through opportunities in which creation, discovery, and learning are made possible. All subjects and styles will be considered for this exhibition, which will take place at the Carriage Barn Arts Center, opening Friday, January 15, from 6-8pm and on view through Sunday, February 21, 2016.

Deadline: Sunday, December 20, 2015
Notification: Wednesday, December 30, 2015
Drop off: Saturday, January 9th 11-2pm and Sunday, January 10th between 1-4pm

Pickup: Wednesday, February 24th between 12-2pm and Friday, February 26th between 11-2pm

Members: $20 for up to 3 and $30 for up to 6 entries
Non-members: $35 for up to 3 and $45 for up to 6 entries.
Pay online with PayPal. All fees are non-refundable.

Work delivered to the gallery must be installation-ready. Non-traditional photographic works in 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 for any work left at the gallery.

1. Fill out the submission form online here.
2. Upload 1-6 .jpg/.jpeg images. Note: We prefer to receive your submitted images of the work as it will be presented – with frame / as mounted – or a note about how you will frame and matte your work – because receiving work with a bright pink matte or huge gold frame makes layout tricky on the day of drop off! Label each image file as “lastname_firstname_01title”: Smith_Mary_01Title.jpg; Smith_Mary_02Title.jpg; Smith_Mary_03Title.jpg. Image resolution must be at least 72dpi, sized no smaller than 1000 pixels in any direction (about 13”). This should result in most image files ranging from 700kb to 2mb in file size. Files bigger than 3mb will not be accepted.
3. Click SUBMIT proceeding to PayPal page for payment.
4. You will receive an email from carriagebarn.org confirming your submission has been processed.

To submit by mail, contact Abbie Kundishora, Interim Gallery Coordinator at [email protected] or (203) 972-1895.

We encourage exhibitors to enter works that are for sale. Before tax, for any works sold, artists receive 60% of the sale price. The Carriage Barn Arts Center and New Canaan Society for the Arts retains the remaining 40% as a transaction fee. While the New Canaan Society for the Arts [NCSA] supports exhibitors who are seeking to sell their work by putting prospective buyers in touch with member artists, the determination of value and other terms of a sale remain a matter between the artist and the prospective buyer throughout the sale process.

While all care will be taken while art is being exhibited in any NCSA sponsored exhibition, NCSA assumes no responsibility for any damage to the artwork during delivery, installation, and de-installation including, by way of example but not limitation, normal wear and tear, such as minor nicks to frames or scratches to Plexiglas. NCSA will not be liable for work not claimed after specified pick-up dates and times.

As a condition for exhibiting work in any NCSA exhibition, the exhibiting artist acknowledges by executing this agreement that NCSA assumes no responsibility for theft or other catastrophic loss beyond the applicable limits of NCSA’s insurance coverage. Except to the extent set forth in a separate written agreement signed by both the Exhibitor and NCSA, and subject to applicable deductions, insurance coverage cannot exceed 50% of the market value of any particular item, with the understanding that the exhibitor’s requested price may not be determinative with regard to market value for insurance purposes.
