FCCA and CBTC – June 5 – September 29, 2017

CALL FOR ENTRIES:  FCCA and Community Bank of the Chesapeake Community Art Exhibit

All artists who are current members of FCCA are invited to submit entries for the June through September 2017 exhibit at the downtown branch of the Bank located at 425 William Street.  Exhibits will now run for four months, rather than three.

Penny A Parrish, Special Events coordinator from FCCA and CBTC, will coordinate the selection and installation of the art.  All work must be for sale, properly framed and ready to hang (with gallery wire).  If art is sold, 25% of the purchase price will go to FCCA.  Work must remain on display through the duration of the exhibition, which will run from June 5 through September 29.  If a piece sells, the artist will be encouraged to bring in a replacement work.

FCCA members are invited to submit up to three works of art for this show.  Work MUST be submitted digitally to bankartfcca@gmail.com  or you can use the online submission form under CBTC.  Only 2D work will be accepted.  THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE FOR THIS SHOW.

Submissions are due Wednesday, May 17, 2017.  Notifications of accepted work will be sent out via email on Wednesday, May 24.  Accepted works must be delivered to the CBTC branch at 425 William Street the morning of Monday, June 5.  If you are unable to bring the work in yourself, you must have someone else deliver it for you.

Procedures and requirements are the same as those for submitting to FCCA shows, however, you must submit them to the above email site or the CBTC online form (not FCCA).  Include the following information:

  • Artist Name
  • Mailing Address
  • Phone Number(s)

And the following information for each piece:

  • Title (Lastname_firstname_title.jpg)
  • Media
  • Framed size (HxWxD)
  • Price
  • (Optional) 15 word description of the artwork – location, background, mood, etc.

Pictures MUST be in JPG form (if you take pictures with a smart phone, they usually need to be converted to JPEG).

Images should be no larger than 1600 pixels in the longest dimension.

If you have any questions, please contact Penny A Parrish, CBTC Special Events coordinator at bankartfcca@gmail.com.
