 2018 Call For Entries



WHO MAY ENTER: All members of the Williamsburg Contemporary Art Center are invited to participate in the Annual Members’ Show. This exhibit typically fills the entire gallery with work by more than 75 Member Artists. A guest judge selects the artwork to receive 12 cash prizes, including 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places plus 9 merit awards.

TYPES OF WORK: Original works in any medium (painting, photography, sculpture, pottery, jewelry, fiber, wood, etc.) executed by the artist alone, completed within the last 5 years, and not previously exhibited at the Gallery are eligible. If conceived from a photo, it should be the artist’s own and not infringe on any copyright. WCAC reserves the right to refuse entry to any work.

SALES: All work must be for sale and must remain on exhibit for the duration of the show. WCAC takes a 40% commission. Artists will receive 60% of the selling price of works sold.

HOW TO ENTER: The Call For Entries Form is available online and is mailed to all current WCAC members. The 2018 Call for entries was mailed in the week of May 3rd.
