How to Enter a Show
Step 1: Apply
Small Image Shows (Open to all San Diego artists)
Maximum of two entries per person. Art must be the creation of the artist. First come, first served. Artists will be notified when the show reaches capacity; in that case, they will get first preference for the following show. All monthly show entries must remain on display for the entire month unless sold. Sold entries may be replaced with a similar size replacement. Review the FAQ for more details on artwork pick-up timeframes.
Step 2: Pay through PAYPAL at the links below. (You will also receive the link in your submission verification email)
You do not have to have a PayPal account to pay through PayPal.
Step 3: Make sure you have your Monthly Show identification tags on your artwork.
