Artist Prospectus

Dear Artists,
Friends of Fishing Creek School are pleased to announce the annual juried professional art show at the beautifully restored historic Fishing Creek School House building in Villas, NJ. on Saturday, June 10th & Sunday, June 11th. This is a two day exhibit and sale, with proceeds  benefiting the continuing preservation project of the Friends of Fishing Creek School (FFCS).  All works accepted must be available for purchase.  FFCS will collect a 10% commission from sales at the exhibit, in addition to a $20. entry  fee for up to 4 pieces.  (the entry fee is non-refundable unless ALL of the works presented are juried out).  Accepted media in this exhibition includes Fine art works in Painting, Drawing, and 2-D Mixed Media.  In addition to the work that is hanging, we will also provide a bin for prints/giclees that are presented in acetate sleeves for purchase - minimum price will be $20. for prints.

Reasonable care will be taken in handling work.  Friends of Fishing Creek Schooldoes not insure your work.  While FFCS has onsite representatives present at all times during admission hours, the building is open to the public, so entering the show is at your own risk.  Art Show Chairpersons and FFCS Board will act as jurors for quality and appropriateness of content in this community and family friendly  art show.  The jurors reserve the right to eliminate any artwork for unsuitable subject matter, quality, craftsmanship and overall professionalism. All work must be professionally framed, except for wrapped canvases, which must be painted on the outside edges. The work must be 2-dimensional with a properly installed wire for hanging. (saw- toothhooks are not permitted)  Gallery space is limited, but we will give our best effort to displaying a variety of works.

First, second, and third place prizes are being awarded for quality and originality.  As an additional fundraising event for
the Friends of Fishing Creek School, there will be a 50/50 Silent Auction.  If you would like to donate a print or original artwork  for the fundraiser,  the artist will receive 50% and the charity will receive 50% of the sale price.
