Answers can be in point form. Answers can be in the body of an email, or attached as a PDF. The more images you send, the better! We recommend that you send samples of the work that you plan to show. This can be combined, as necessary, with your past work that best represents your vision for your exhibition.

Please let us know about your availability to exhibit in 2019. (Do you anticipate being away at any points in the year? Do you have school or work schedules that could impact your availability to connect with our team and engage in the process? It's best to let us know now so we can plan accordingly.)
