APPLICATION FACTS AND FORMS FOR ARTISTS

The Spring 2020 Art Show scheduled for May 16 & 17 in Beverly Gardens Park, has been cancelled by the City of Beverly Hills Community Services Department as we follow the Safer at Home Order to mitigate the impact of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). As a way to stay connected to our community, we have developed a Virtual Community Services website at CommunityLifeBH.org, where you can find a multitude of programs, resources and engaging content under Arts & Culture and Artist Resources, among many other topics. #CommunityLifeBH#BHHealthyCity#BHArtShow #BHArtShow2020

Dear Artist,

Thank you for your interest in the Beverly Hills Art Show.

To get started in applying to future shows please go to Juried Art Services, where you will find a complete brochure describing the event.  You can: 1. REGISTER/CREATE YOUR PROFILE, and 2. CREATE A PORTFOLIO.  When a new application for the Beverly Hills Art Show comes online, you will be notified, and at that time you may 3. APPLY.  There is not yet an online application for the next show.

We ask all artists to be thoroughly aware that this show is carefully juried by a panel of fine art professionals.  There are always many more applicants than space allows, so not all artists will be accepted.  An outside panel (which changes from show to show) selects the artists for every show.

______________________________________________________

PART A - FOUR APPLICATION ITEMS are needed to apply.  We require from any artist, for each show application, the following four items:

1. 8 distinct photos of 8 separate pieces of art within one single, specific category.  The 11 categories are: painting | watercolor | traditional printmaking and/or drawing | photography | digital art | 2-D mixed media | 3-D mixed media | sculpture | ceramics | glass | jewelry.  Please submit artwork that is no older than 4 years.

2. 1 photo or drawing of your display at the show (PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE BOOTH DISPLAY SAMPLES).  Bear in mind that your space will be a minimum of 12.5 feet wide x 10 feet deep, on a flat lawn area, so use this information when photographing, drawing or otherwise creating your display image.  Providing a display image is required.  Photographs preferred to drawings, but accurate drawings are acceptable too.  You may request a larger space when you fill out the form, but no advance guarantees!  The fee is the same for every space in the show and there are no "double spaces".  (Overhead structures like canopies cannot be larger than 10' X 10', even though all of the spaces are larger; wall units cannot be taller than 8'.)

3. An application fee of $35.00 which is non-refundable once paid.  If the late fee of $55.00 was paid, that is also non-refundable.

4. An acceptance fee of $415.00 will be required, only if accepted.  Parking for the accepted artist, at designated city facilities throughout the show weekend and during set-up and breakdown, is included in the acceptance fee.

PART B - THREE SEPARATE SECTIONS in Juried Art Services.  Right before you log on to Juried Art Services, please read these 3 steps which correspond to 3 distinct sections.

1. If you are new to Juried Art Services, the 1st step should be to Register Now (command on upper right side of page) and CREATE A PROFILE.  This simply includes your professional contact information, along with a user name and password.

2. Then CREATE A PORTFOLIO.  Name your portfolio something simple like: BHartSHOW-Fall 2021.

Now you'll upload at least 8 high resolution photos of your art and at least 1 booth display image to your portfolio, but not yet to your application - uploading photos DOES take time.  Rules for the digital sizes of your photos are on the JAS website.

3. APPLY.  When the next application is available, you will be notified, and can fill out the form online, but please read the prospectus brochure first; this will be included online with the application.  To complete the application you will SELECT your 8 photos of 8 different artworks and 1 photo or rendering of your anticipated display. The early application deadline fee will be $35 and you can pay when you complete the application.  You can edit or change your application after you apply.

When you have read this over and are ready to create your profile, portfolio, and application, please click here -  www.juriedartservices.com.
