My First Exhibition

I've finally decided to take the plunge and enter my first exhibition. I have already decided to not worry whether I make it in or not, but I can't get past the fact that I have no idea what I'm doing. I want to enter a mug and I know I need to mail the application along with a CD of photos, but how many photos? Am I allowed to only submit one photo with a straight on perspective, or can I submit several at different angles? Should I call the gallery and ask them? I am allowed one entry for one fee and two for another, but I think I'm only going to submit one. I get the impression that this is something that I should already know, and I'm reluctant to call the gallery for fear of making a fool of myself. Some wise advise would be much appreciated :)


  1. Hi Ben- they will not think you silly or uneducated to call or email them.
    We do this all the time. It will give you the information you need instead of guessing.
    Best of luck!
    Go for it!

  2. If the info isn't on their website - then by all means, call or email for more information.

    Good luck!

  3. I just went through the same experience! I had similar questions and sent an email, but never heard back, so I suggest a phone call. We all have to start somewhere and the only stupid question is the one unasked. Good luck!

  4. Thanks y'all! I'll call them this afternoon!
