Terms and Information:
Participating artists will receive a single easel (provided by the showcase and placed at the discretion of the showcase managers) on which to display a single painting.
Recommended size is 16×20 and under. Any size up to 24 inches wide is acceptable, however frame weight may not be supported by the easel, which could subject your painting to potential danger. However, the painting must fit on a standard easel and must be framed and wired for hanging.
Note: The back of the painting must have the artist’s name printed and room for an index card sticker.
Participants can purchase one showcase position for one painting, with a limit of two positions (easels) per artist. Each position costs $97. A 35 percent commission will be deducted from the sale of paintings and a check provided in due course following the show.
The minimum suggested price per painting is $500.
Once a painting is sold, the artist may replace it with a new painting at no additional charge. Note: This must be arranged through the showcase manager. Replacement paintings must adhere to the terms stated here.
Showcase positions will include a card with your name, the painting title, the retail price (which you set), and the medium and support (e.g., oil on board). We will ask for this information on receipt of each painting, which you must HAND-deliver to the art gallery registration desk in the convention hall framed and unpacked from the box (no shipping, please). You may ship your artwork to yourself if you are staying at the hotel, just remember to include your full name and check-in date. Your name must be clearly marked on the back of your painting, with a label that includes your mobile phone number.
Dry varnished paintings are preferred./
Paintings must be framed and properly mounted, and must have a hanging wire properly attached.
Paintings in the showcase cannot be removed or sold independently via side deals during the show. Paintings will be sold only through the Plein Air Convention staff, and a commission of 35 percent of the sale price will be deducted from payment to the artist, which will be made within 30 days following the show.
Advance purchase of easel space is required to guarantee a space. Pre-paid easel space purchases take priority; after that, space will be provided on a first come, first served basis until our limit has been reached.
Unsold paintings must be picked up before the exhibition ends and checked out with a signed receipt from the PleinAir Store. Paintings sold will be given a special tag indicating payment to allow the painting to be taken out of the show area. If a painting is sold, the artist may replace it with another painting after providing the show organizers with information on the new painting.
Although security will be provided, the Plein Air Convention is not responsible for lost or stolen paintings.
