Radius Gallery is currently accepting entries for its exhibition MONTANA FOUND, to take place Mar 2 - Mar 31, 2018. The exhibition is open to all types of art—painting, illustration, ceramic, sculpture, collage, photography and more—but all works must incorporate a physical object (or objects) “found” in Montana. The object might provide the surface for an otherwise 2-dimensional artwork; it might be a component of an assemblage; it might serve as a “ready-made” with little or no embellishment. The object should be a clear feature of the work (i.e. it shouldn't be completely obscured by other media).
We hope for and welcome a variety of submissions—those that celebrate "the last best place" for its beauty, history and culture, as well as those that cast a more critical eye on Montana’s many, often conflicting narratives.
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 and Scale 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. Large and small works are welcome, but due to space limitations we cannot accept artwork exceeding 60" in any direction.
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.
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.
