SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY THEME
This year, in honor of our 90th anniversary, we will have an OPTIONAL “theme” for the show. The theme is “90 degree angles” which would be entries composed with perpendicular lines. A special award of $250 will be given for a work in that category. In addition, all honorable mention awards will be $90, for just this year.
All submitted entries will receive careful handling. However, neither the MPSGS nor Strathmore can assume responsibility for loss or damage to the work submitted to this exhibit. This form is an agreement on the part of the artist to all conditions set forth in this prospectus. The exhibit catalog and display labels are prepared directly from data on the entry forms. 2 MPSGS 2023 Exhibit Prospectus The Society takes no responsibility for consequences from missing or erroneous data on the entry form. The MPSGS reserves the right to photograph any entry for media and catalog presentation.
JURY PROCESS AND SPIRIT OF A MINIATURE
All submitted works are juried by a panel of MPSGS members. They review the works for quality of art, and assure framing is neat. A work in which the image is life-size is not considered miniature art. A work of fine art in miniature is a particularly personal object that draws the viewer into an intimate, concentrated little world. See more info at mpsgs.org, About Us page.
The minimum asking price must be $100. Prices must be set in $5 increments. The median asking price for the last exhibit was $300. A commission of 40% will be charged on all sales. All works must be for sale, and all sales are final.
A list of the accepted works will be posted at mpsgs.org by the end of September.
Our awards total about $9,000. See more info at mpsgs.org, Exhibition page.
