Signage: The Indiana Art Association (“IAA”) will create labels for any exhibiting artist in an effort to keep all exhibits consistent. The IAA will need the title, size, medium, and price of the art to create the labels, two weeks before any artwork gets displayed. We will also create a printed copy of any artist bio and/or statement that the artist submits to us. We would be happy to place this information on our website and Facebook page, as well.
Exhibition Ready: All artwork must be wired and ready to hang.
If your work is framed: Please make sure all framed artwork is clean and in good shape, not chipped or falling apart. If you have a canvas back, it needs to be flat flush against the frame. If the canvas sticks out past the frame, the back needs to be papered. Make sure that no wire shows above the frame when you hang your artwork.
If you submit artwork with no frame: Any canvases submitted without frames must be painted on the sides. The paint can be a solid color or painted as part of the artwork.
Sales: Any artwork sales from an off-site IAA exhibit must go through the Indiana Art Association. The purchaser will pay the IAA, and the association will retain 20% of any sale, and will also take care of necessary sales tax. The IAA will then send a check for 80% of the sale price to the artist. Selling your work through our exhibit space at The Artist Hand Gallery is the only exception to the 85/15 split. In this case the artist only retains 50% of the purchase price. The AH Gallery receives a commission of 35% and the IAA retains 15%. You should price your work accordingly. If you do not wish to place your work for sale, it will be marked NFS (“Not for Sale”).
*If you are interested in exhibiting or have been approved to exhibit, the best thing to do is to check out the space and see what sizes and how many of your pieces would work best. If you are unsure after seeing them, the IAA will be happy to help you determine what space would best for your work.
- IRMC Urgi Care: This is an exhibit space with a wire hanging system. There is a 30 foot lighted wall with 12 wires and 20 hooks available for hanging artwork.
- IRMC Ambulatory: There are 16 spots available for this exhibit; one is on the second floor. The rest are on the first floor, in the hallway and in the office across from Diamond Drug. The nails that are already placed in this space must stay where they are. Two of the spaces in the office require smaller art pieces and three of the spaces in the hallway would do best with larger pieces.
- IAA Wall at The Artist Hand Gallery: The Indiana Art Association has a small amount of wall space available for our members to exhibit at The Artist Hand Gallery. This space is for multiple members at a time. You may choose to show 1 or 2 works.Works must be approved by The Indiana Art Association and The Artist Hand before exhibiting. (The commission for the AH Gallery wall differs from the other community spaces, in that the artist only retains 50% of the purchase price. The AH Gallery receives a commission of 35% and the IAA retains 15%)
If you are interested in exhibiting your artwork, please email your basic information and 3 samples of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org. All artists showing work at an Indiana Art Association exhibit must be a current member of the Indiana Art Association.
