Top 5 reasons why artists are disqualified from calls?

Time after time, you submit to so many artist calls, and time after time, you are rejected. We are going to give you a secret with the top five reasons why artists are disqualified.

5. Ego.  You are an established artist and now you do not submit your best work. You assume because of your name that the jurors will just accept whatever you choose to submit. 

4. Quality of images. Do not submit images that are shot with an iPad, iPhone or by you if you are not a professional photographer. Hire someone who specializes in photography that will show the quality of your art.

3. Poorly written artist statements and/or CVs. Often times the imagery is beautiful but either your CVs are not up to date or your artist statement does not reflect the body of work. Hire someone who specializes in this area.

2. Missed the deadline. You must meet the deadline. Period. If the coordinators extend the deadline or you were invited to submit after the deadline, that is different.  Otherwise, no questions asked. 

1. You do not follow directions. This by far is the number one reason why artists are not selected for calls for exhibition. Read the entire call before anxiously submitting your work. This makes the difference. You take the risk of being disqualified because you might not have read one line that made the difference between you being in an exhibition or not. Do not take the risk of losing your fee because you assume you did the call correctly but chose not to read the directions. Take your time.

Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition III

Collaboration: African Diaspora Exhibition at the Center for Creative Education Produced by A.T.B Fine Artists & Designers LLC

The vision of this is to have an African Diaspora (The African diaspora was the movement of Africans and their descendants to places throughout the world – predominantly to the Americas) exhibition at the Center for Creative Education. 

This is the third installment of the exhibition.  Originally created in 2013, the African Diaspora had displayed a vast variety of artists from around the country.  We have achieved this not simply hanging art on a wall or sitting it on a pedestal. It was accomplished by unique story telling through the eyes, hands and lips of the artists themselves.

The focus is to show the community that there is another aspect of art & culture in a community that many of the Palm Beach County community have yet to experience.  This year’s group includes artists who are originally from, reside or are represented in the state of Florida in one location here in Palm Beach County.  The concept of art itself does not have to be in reflection of the diaspora.

Photography by Lance Connelly

We believe that with the partnership of CCE & A.T.B. the Diaspora will be another great success.
