Call for Art

Frankfort Arts Association member artists who are residents of Frankfort are invited to submit entries for an exhibit in the Frankfort Village Hall.

Frankfort is a bustling community that we all call home. Rooted in a rich agricultural history, our village has defined itself as a modern community with an exciting future. Our inaugural gallery wall at the Frankfort Village Hall will showcase our hometown FAA members' vision of Frankfort: yesterday, today, and tomorrow!

   

GUIDELINES:

  • Artists may submit one work.

  • Most subjects, styles, and techniques will be accepted, from realistic to abstract – figures, landscapes, architecture, animals, design, observations, inventions, transformations, symbols, etc. The Village requests that nothing overtly political or controversial be displayed.

  • Submitted works can be in any medium, but must be wired and able to hang from a hook on the wall.

  • All sizes and formats will be accepted.

  • Artists are responsible for providing their own insurance if desired. Neither FAA nor the Village will insure loss or damage of work. A loan agreement containing this stipulation must be signed and provided to FAA when dropping off your work.
