WAAM artist members may submit one work for each Main Gallery exhibition and one work for each Small Works show. All media are welcome and jurying is done from actual works, except for the Regional, Under 40 Show and Solo Show jurying. If sold, works may be replaced during the exhibition subject to the approval of the gallery director. Size limit for Small Works is 15×15 in. including frame and 24x24x24 in. for sculpture. There are size limits for all but two Main Gallery shows, as listed in the calendar. Submission days for Small Works shows are the same as Main Gallery shows, unless otherwise noted. Gallery commission for work sold is 40%. Non-members living within 50 miles of Woodstock, NY may pay a $35 non-refundable submission fees per member show to submit art.

WAAM exhibitions are planned and installed and jurors selected by a volunteer committee of artist members. Juried shows are chosen solely at the discretion of the juror without bias or input from others. The exhibition committee works diligently to find highly qualified jurors. In order to ensure the highest possible degree of objectivity invited jurors are not associated with WAAM. They are gallery owners, museum curators, college art professors, and art critics chosen from the art world at large.

1) Juried from actual works of art. An artist may submit only 1 piece to each show, unless otherwise stated in show prospectus. In the case of works composed of more than one separate element, a diagram clearly showing the proper display of the elements must be included with the submission; also the height/width/depth of the entire piece may not exceed maximum dimensions if such a restriction is listed in the prospectus. In the case of sculptures, supports that are incorporated into the work will be considered as part of the work when measurement restrictions are in effect.

2) Work submitted must be in display condition. Frames must be ready for hanging wired so that the hanger doesn’t show with wire adequate for the weight of the piece. Extremely fragile pieces, pieces with poorly secured elements, paint that is not yet dried, unstable frames or hanging supports, or loose glass will be disqualified automatically. If a piece requires non-traditional hanging methods, pre-approval by the Exhibition Committee is required in order to insure compliance with professional gallery standards. Please consult with the committee prior to
submission day.

3) Only work by living artists may be submitted.

4) All members submitting work must have a CV and Artists Statement on file with the WAAM. This information will be available to gallery-goers for each show.

5) Only original work may be submitted.
a) Giclee, digital or xerographic reproductions of works originally created in media other than digital formats or photography will not be considered.
b) Works consisting of wholesale appropriation of other artists’ images are not considered original art.

6) Works shown in previous juried shows at the WAAM may not be submitted for another juried WAAM show. Works that have been juried into a show at the WAAM may be submitted for non-juried shows and vice-versa.

7) Non-members living within a 50 mile radius of the WAAM may submit 1 work for any juried show if they pay a non-refundable $35 fee per show.

8) Submission dates and times: works must be submitted between 12 and 6pm on the Monday before the exhibition opening. Artists may appoint a friend or other agent to drop-off and/or pick-up works if they are unable to do these tasks themselves, the agent or friend will need to sign for the works. If an artist or a proxy is unable to bring work to WAAM on Monday, work may be submitted on the preceding Sunday from 3pm-5pm with prior approval. Call WAAM ahead of time to make the necessary arrangements.

9) Notice of Acceptance: a list of the names of artists whose work has been juried into a show will be accessible by telephone and/or via e-mail notification after 5pm on the Wednesday following submission.

10) Pick-up dates and times: For works not juried into a show- please pick up work between 12 and 5pm the Thursday following submission. For works juried into a show- please pick up work between 12 and 6pm the Monday following the close of the show. This day may also be the submission date/time for the next juried show(s.)

Active Member Jurying is one of the three ways by which a WAAM Associate Member can become an Active Member. Click here for additional information about becoming an Active Member.

Active Members receive the added benefit of exhibiting in the annual Active Members Show (a non-juried show with a nominal hanging fee of $10). Active Members also are eligible for a one time opportunity to exhibit their work on the Active Members Wall in the WAAM’s Founders Gallery. They can also vote for Active Member candidates in the WAAM’s annual Board of Director’s elections each August.

Active Member jurying is done once a year, usually in July. The artist submits 6 original pieces which together constitute a body of work representing a consistent point of view. The artist’s work is reviewed by a jury composed of regional arts professionals named by the WAAM’s Exhibition Committee. The jury’s choices are announced via e-mail.

1) The decision of the juror(s) is final and will not be influenced by WAAM Board members, staff or general members. The interpretation of the show theme is entirely the responsibility of the individual juror.

2) The presence of members of the Exhibition Committee during jurying is solely to facilitate the physical process, they are not part of the critical process.

As part of the WAAM’s commitment to promote the best in Woodstock art, the Exhibition Committee endeavors to compose a schedule of exhibitions- juried, non-juried and curated- that compliment our members’ talents and skills and challenges them to stretch their artistic boundaries. We serve artists fairly and impartially. We also present our community and visitors with fresh and exciting visual experiences throughout the season with thoughtful and clear displays.
