The 12x12x12 PREVIEW SHOW is a presentation of original works by OPEN STUDIOS ART TOUR participants. Works are exhibited at Art Central Gallery, downtown San Luis Obispo, from OCTOBER 6-30, 2017.

ELIGIBILITY & ACCEPTANCE: The 12 x 12 x 12 Preview Show is open to all artists participating in the 2017 Open Studios Art Tour only. ONE ENTRY may be submitted for each catalog listing. You are encouraged to create an original piece that represents the work visitors can expect to see in your studio during the 2017 Tour.

MAXIMUM DIMENSION: 2D and 3D work, including frame, support and/or display stand, must not exceed a measurement of 12 inches in any direction. (Pieces may be smaller than these dimensions.) NOTE: Work submitted that exceeds 12” x 12” x 12” will NOT be accepted. No reproductions will be accepted.

ARTWORK IS FOR SALE: Title cards include the artist’s Open Studios Art Tour studio number--giving you a way to market your studio. Start thinking about your entry for the show now!

2D ENTRIES: Must be ready to hang using D-Rings and a wire system. For questions on hanging, contact Art Central at 805.747.4200. (12” x 12” canvases are available for purchase at Art Central.)

3D ENTRIES: All 3D entries are displayed on glass shelving. Please keep in mind, Art Central’s Gallery is not supervised during the day; therefore, displaying small, expensive pieces that can fit in a pocket is not advised. You may have more than one piece in your display as long as it fits within the 12” x 12” x 12” dimension, however, it must be priced as a set.

JEWELRY: Jewelry artists must display their pieces in an Art Central shadowbox. The boxes will be displayed on the walls with other 2D art. You may bring your jewelry in at entry to arrange it in the box, or make pre-arrangements with Art Central by calling Etty at 805.747.4200. Shadowboxes hang on the wall and are considered 2D art. You may have more than one piece in your shadowbox; however, it must be priced as a set.

ENTRY FEE: The entry fee is $12. Artists are encouraged to REGISTER & PREPAY ONLINE via the link above (Visa, MasterCard, American Express & Discover accepted). This greatly streamlines the process at time of work submission and preparation of title cards. Alternately, you may pay by credit/debit card, check, or cash (exact change appreciated) at drop off.
