Get Gallery Show Submission Ready
Need a Jpeg image of your artwork?
A few helpful hints:
- Artwork should be unframed and if applicable out of glass.
- Artwork should be unsigned (or edited out digitally).
- Any art on paper or other medium which tends to curl or buckle should be mounted (if only temporarily) on a flat board of some sort so that the whole piece will be in focus when photographed.
- When photographing your artwork natural lighting is best.
- Artwork image Jpegs should be burned on a CDR.
- Always follow the prospectus (guidelines) given.
Still having problems getting a useable jpeg or questions?
If you are unequipped to get a good image ready for submitting into a gallery or call to artist, there are those who can!
