Selection Process: Selection will be based on the quality of the work, including technical execution, composition, and creativity, and how the piece fits in with the theme of the show (“Light and Memory”).

We are unable to provide shielded cases, projectors, televisions, stereos, or other devices for multimedia artwork. The gallery is also unable to setup and tear down installation works. If such works are accepted, we will inform the artist what additional requirements will be needed to setup their work in the gallery.

The artist will also be responsible for return shipping costs.
