ART FOR BARCS | Call for Artists
All entered artwork must be original work by the submitting artist. All pieces must be animal-related (mammals), family-friendly and the value should not be more than $150 per piece. You must let us know how many pieces and the sizes that you intend to submit by June 5, 2018. (If we run out of space we reserve the right to restrict the number of pieces).
Each artist will need to set up a time in advance with Blue Pit BBQ to bring in their pieces between June 10 and June 13. Art must be hung no later than June 13. Each piece will be labeled with the percentage of proceeds being donated to BARCS. Keep in mind, many guests are animal advocates and will be more likely to purchase the pieces that have a larger portion going to BARCS!
In addition to your hung pieces, you may also bring additional prints to sell. Prints must be 8x10 or smaller and will be sold for $20 each, with 50% going to BARCS.
Work may be collected any time after the show or each artist may leave it hanging until it sells or until Blue Pit BBQ needs the wall space.
Blue Pit BBQ will not take a fee but for all works sold through them, they will add on and collect additional sales tax in order to pay it with their monthly sales tax. You may elect to have all sales go through you (in which case you will be responsible for coordinating with the buyer) or you may elect to have Blue Pit BBQ accept payment for the sale, add on sales tax, deduct and make the donation to BARCS on behalf of the show and cut you a check for the remainder. Blue Pit BBQ will provide personal sales reports to each artist each month or within 48 hours upon request.
The artists will assume responsibility for his or her work. Blue Pit BBQ and BARCS will not be held liable or responsible for any theft, damage or anything happening to the artwork.
We will have an opening party on June 14, 2018 at 7 p.m. The art opening will feature specialty cocktails with the proceeds going to BARCS.
