How to Submit Your Art

ARTISTS NEAR (Local artists):

  • Artists can submit up to 3 pieces.

  • Please register to participate. You do NOT need to upload any artwork. 

  • Work does not need to be completed in a single day as in the past but should be inspired by Eastport, and may be abstract or representational, in any medium.

 

Deliver your art to Eastport Art Center (not the gallery):

Sept. 2 between 10am and 2pm.

ARTISTS FAR (Artists participating in Virtual Gallery and Auction):

  • Artists can submit up to 3 pieces. 

  • Artwork will need to be uploaded using the form below.

  • Work does not need to be completed in a single day as in the past but should be inspired by Eastport, and may be abstract or representational, in any medium.

AUCTIONS

EAC Auction

A reception and silent auction will be held at Eastport Art Center on  September 3rd from 4-6pm.

Virtual Auction

An online auction will take place from Sept. 4 through Sept. 10 of all the work submitted virtually. 

Commissions

Sales will be subject to 70/30 split - 70% to artist and 30% to Gallery. Please consider this when setting your minimum bids (reserve price).  Works by youth 12 and under - 100% to artist. We also will ask you to provide a "buy now" price for immediate sales. This is a high-end price that allows a buyer to purchase an artwork without bidding.

 

After the Auctions

Artists will be notified after bidding closes on Sept 3 for the physical auction. 

Artists and winners will be notified by email of the results of the online auction by September 11. Artists will agree to deliver or ship their art to buyers by September 13.
