Isleview motel is offering 10% discount to show artists

Artists will have 2 weeks upon invitation to confirm with payment of their booth space. This enables traveling artists to "lock-in" their space and plan for lodging in advance. After 2 weeks the invitation is still valid provided that spaces are still available in the medium category. Medium categories are limited to provide a well-balanced show for both artists and customers--categories like jewelry tend to fill quickly.

Artists found in violation of any of these requirements during the show may be asked to remove offending items or ejected from the show. No refund will be given an artist found in violation of show policies.

*Note about photography/digital art: Because of the spread of digital and other "mass produced" means, digitally-printed photography does not fall under the guidelines for original, one-of-a-kind or true limited edition art.  Any artform that is now printed using any difital file/printer/device is now categorized as digital art. Fine photography is hand-produced/manipulated photographs in the printing process. Digital artists may have multiple versions and sizes of their art as long AS LONG AS THE LARGEST SIZE IS APPROPRIATELY FRAMED AND DISPLAYED. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MAY DIGITAL ART BE REPRESENTED AS LIMITED-EDITION ART--REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY OR FEW ARE PRODUCED.

Reproductions

An exhibiting artist in either painting, graphics or printmaking will be allowed to sell UNFRAMED reproductions of displayed work as an alternative to capture a sale from a framed original that a customer may otherwise find cost prohibitive. However, the artist MUST comply with all of the following conditions:

1. The reproduction must be of a framed available original on display in the booth. In other words, the reproduction image must be identical to that of the original on display in the booth. If the original is not on display, then the reproduction image may not be offered for sale.

2. The reproduction must be of equal size or less to that of the original, and available in only one size.

3. All reproductions are to be stored in ONE rack only in the display booth--and the reproductions must be clearly marked as "reproductions."

4. Reproductions MAY NOT be referred to as "limited editions prints"--even when numbered. This is a term of art which is reserved for true limited edition prints such as hand-pulled original etchings and lithographs.

5. 2D artists may display up to 1/3 of their toatl framed wall display with reproductions of the same media they juried in with. The framed prints must be clearly marked with pricing info as being "reproductions."

Jurying
 
Jury/application fee is a non-refundable $30.00. Jurying is on-going up to the final jury date. An artist may elect to "lock" their participation by confirming acceptance and payment within two weeks of invitation.
