New Beginnings - Rules

There is no charge for entry.  This show is open to WACAC members who have joined the organization since May 15th, 2018 only.

*Note... in the last year, we have over 55 new members, which is about the number of pieces that our main gallery will hold.  If everyone submits, we will only be able to accept one piece of art work from each artist.  However, we know that not everyone will submit, so we will be allowing up to 3 entries.  Please be sure to assign a priority to the pieces you submit.  We will prioritize the accepted pieces based on your priorities.  

Also, our art center only has 12 pedestals, so it you are an artist who creates artwork that requires a pedestal, please submit early.

We reserve the right to close submissions early if participation exceeds expectations and we run out of room in our Main Gallery.
