“Art Works = More than the sum of its parts”

2019 Annual Member/Supporter Art Exhibition

April-May, 2019

Art Works, 3795 Pilot Knob Rd, Eagan, MN 55122

We hope that all artists and community members will help us celebrate the work of our artist members and supporters!  All are welcome to attend the FREE opening reception on April 7, 5:30-7:00 p.m. with a ticketed (LINK) Salon Series performance starting at 7:00 p.m.

About the Exhibit: The exhibit “Art Works = More than the sum of its parts” is intended to celebrate the work of (LINK) member artists and (LINK) makers who create at Art Works, and the work of the larger community of (LINK) supporters whose contributions make programming happen here every day.  We will accept solo submissions but submissions should not have been shown at Art Works before and should not have been shown in the greater Eagan community in the last two years. A special preference will be shown toward submissions with a collaborative element.  Joint work created by two or more artists will receive special focus. Only one artist from any collaboration must be a member or supporter at Art Works. You may choose to enter collaborative pieces you have created with other friends from the community outside of Art Works too! Challenge yourself, and spend some time making art with other artists!

Member/supporter applicants are guaranteed one submission of solo work and one collaborative submission.

Applications and Fees: Application/Waiver/Work Samples are requested by March 1, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.  Application fee for members/supporters is $5 for adults. You may submit up to 5 pieces of work for consideration, and you are guaranteed at least one solo piece and one collaborative submission will be chosen for exhibition. Artists whose work is not accepted for whatever reason will be refunded the application fee.  Artists whose work is deemed exceptional may be asked to submit more pieces and become a featured artist in the exhibition. Application fees are used to support the administrative work associated with the exhibit. Email with questions or if you are in need of support to complete the online application.

You will need a google account in order to submit an application online.  Please consider creating one as all of our exhibit applications utilize this system.  Utilizing automation through google forms is the only way for our all volunteer run organization to manage the data associated with applications. Thanks for your help!

Sales of art: All art will be for sale (or marked NFS) and sales take place directly between you and the customer.  AWE takes no commission, but happily accepts a donation if you feel it is a good venue for you.
