The Art Center will not negotiate price with a potential buyer and there is no category of “Best Offer” or “Price on Request.” If the artwork is sold, the artist’s social security number is required before payment can be processed.
Artist Statements: We request that you provide an artist statement, describing your inspiration, be included with each submission. Please limit your statement to no more than two sentences, so that it will fit on the wall label that will identify your work during the exhibition.
