Call for Art: Limited Edition

Limited Edition: An Open Exhibition of Small Works

Fairbanks Arts Association invites artists residing in Interior Alaska to submit their work for Limited Edition: An Open Exhibition of Small Works. There is no jury process associated with this exhibit; this show is an open invitation to Interior artists. Works must be no larger than 12 inches in any direction, including the size of the frame. This exhibition consists of a buy, take, and replace model. All works on view must be available for purchase. Once purchased, a buyer can take the work immediately upon payment. After the artwork has left the gallery, the artist may put a new work in its place. 

In an effort to limit contact while Fairbanks Arts’ board-approved COVID-19 mitigation measures are in place, exhibition participants must complete the Limited Edition registration form online no later than noon on Saturday, October 31, 2020. 

Artwork can only be delivered to the Bear Gallery once the Limited Edition registration form is submitted online. Click HERE to complete the online registration for this show.
