Radius Gallery is currently accepting entries for its 4th Annual Holiday Show, to take place Nov 11 - Dec 24, 2017. Last year’s show featured work by 99 artists—with nearly 200 artworks sold! Note, this is not a holiday-themed show. Artwork of all genres and media will be considered. The show is designed to appeal to gift buyers and collectors alike. Salability is important, but not at the expense of quality or creativity.
A new feature of this year’s Holiday Show will be a teapot display! Artists are invited to explore the design and function of this classic vessel. We welcome submissions of both traditional, hand-crafted, usable teapots, as well as more exotic (and perhaps not-so-functional) interpretations of the form.
Open to all artists in the United States and Canada, 18 years of age or older. Artists may submit only their own original artworks.

Number of Entries
Each artist can submit up to 5 artworks. Radius Gallery may choose to accept some, none or all of an artist’s entries.
Media / Preparation
The exhibition is open to all media. Work must be framed (when applicable) and ready to hang (wire, D-rings or cleat). Work on paper must be covered by glass or Plexiglass with no exposed edges.
We encourage artists to submit works that will retail for $500 or less, recognizing that artwork in this price range will often be small or even miniature in dimension. That said, higher-priced work will be considered. Just keep in mind that we intend to promote the show as one featuring high quality, affordable art, and that one of our acceptance criteria is salability.
Digital images must be in JPG format, with the longest dimension not less than 1200 pixels and not exceeding 1800 pixels. File names must include the artist’s last name and the title of the artwork (e.g. WARHOL_eight_elvises.jpg).
Images should represent the actual artwork as closely as possible. If artwork is selected for the show, and upon arrival in the gallery it deviates significantly and unfortunately from the image used to selected it (in terms of color, shape, construction, etc.), Radius Gallery reserves the right not to hang the work.
By entering the competition, artists whose works are selected for the show grant Radius Gallery the right to use submitted images on printed materials and the gallery’s web and social media sites for promotional purposes only. Radius Gallery retains no copyrights to artists' works.
$10 (non-refundable) to submit 1-3 entries
$15 (non-refundable) to submit 4-5 entries
