Call for Art
FAA member artists are invited to submit entries for an exhibit at our gallery in downtown Frankfort.
(NW corner of Nebraska and Hickory)
Direct Observation will celebrate art inspired by directly observing its subject. Show us a portrait, still life, plein air, sketch, or other art inspired by direct observation.
FAA member artists may submit one original work to be included in the show.
Most subjects, styles, and techniques will be accepted, from realistic to abstract – figures, landscapes, architecture, animals, design, observations, inventions, transformations, symbols, etc.
Submitted works can be in any medium, 2D or 3D, except for video.
Hanging works must be no larger than 40" x 40".
Non-hanging 3D works may be any size provided it fits well in the gallery.
Unless you hear otherwise, consider your entry accepted for the members' show.
The exhibit is open to active FAA Member Artists.
By MAY 23, 2023:
In order to participate in this exhibit, member artists must complete the online entry form below and upload a jpeg of their artwork.
Your image will be used on the FAA website where buyers can purchase your artwork. If your piece is Not for Sale, the photo may still be on the website but marked as such.
2-dimensional work must be properly wired and ready to hang; no sawtooth hangers, please. Work should be framed unless done on gallery-wrapped canvas. Wrapped edges must be finished.
Curators reserve the right to refuse work that does not meet the requirements or is considered too fragile for the exhibit.
All work remains on exhibit for the duration of the show. If purchased, the piece will remain in place until the show has ended and arrangements will be made for pick-up by the purchaser.
Unless requested otherwise by the artist, permission is given to the FAA to use any images of exhibited work for publicity or educational purposes.
