MEDIA: Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional 2-D visual arts media.  Limited capacity for three dimensional artwork and electronic media. 

DELIVERY AND RETURN OF WORK: All work accepted for the exhibition must arrive ready to install. Accepted work that differs significantly from the entry images or suffers from poor presentation, will be disqualified. Please note that professional-level presentation and craftsmanship is a must. Work may be hand delivered or shipped. Shipped works must be sent in an easily reusable container/packaging. Works will be returned (paid by Sojourn Arts) via UPS/USPS. All work must arrive at Sojourn by the specified date (see calendar below). Accepted work will remain on display for the duration of the exhibition. The artists are responsible for all shipping costs to the gallery.  The gallery is responsible for return shipping costs, up to $50/ artist.

INSURANCE:  Works will be insured while on gallery premises. Insurance covers theft, vandalism, damage caused by gallery patrons or staff. PLEASE NOTE: Insurance does not cover damage caused during shipping due to any reason, including mishandling by carrier or failure of packaging to protect works in transit. Also not covered is damage caused to work by failure of the work itself, its mounting systems installed or provided by the artist, disintegration/degradation due to the nature/quality of materials or craftsmanship, or incidental damage to works whose artist-directed presentation methods put them at risk.

SALE OF ARTWORK:  Artworks are not required to be for sale in order to be included in the exhibition. It is required that works are indicated as either "for sale" or not for sale (NFS) on the submitted entry form.
