Create art work on the face of a flat envelope of any size, shape, or color. (Artwork must be all ages appropriate, nothing overtly sexual or violent.)
2. SUBMIT THE WORK via EMAIL
Artists can submit up to 5 pieces. Email a photo / scan (1000 dpi wide) of each piece to firstname.lastname@example.org. The envelope your art is on must not exceed 12" x 15". Include with each submission the artist name, title, dimensions and rough price range. (Submissions will be voted on by the staff and based on the guidelines listed here.)
The deadline for submissions via email is January 11, 2019 (DO NOT send the physical piece yet.)
Once your submission is approved, we will email you a gallery agreement with more details to sign and return.
3. SEND THE WORK
Conceal something in the envelope. (It can be another work of art, words of wisdom or some other wonderous thing. Nothing perishable, messy, or innapropriate please.)
Close, but do not seal the contents in the envelope as our staff needs to screen each one first before sealing. Once we have inspected the art, we will seal the envelopes for you.
Ship the art / envelope unframed in a safe package to the following address. (Sandwiched between two pieces of larger cardboard within another envelope.)
Nucleus (envelope show) 210 East Main St. Alhambra CA 91801 USA
We must receive the work no later than January 22, 2019
Gallery agreement and more details will be emailed to artists with approved pieces.
Gallery agreement will outline terms for exhibiting with us including printing required artwork info, etc.
Accepted artwork can be priced by the artist between $100 - $500.
Artists will receive 50% commission of their art sale.
The artwork will be clipped to the gallery wall without frames and will also be made available on our website.
After the exhibition, unsold envelopes can be picked up or shipped back to the artist. Art will be shipped in a larger envelope but return shipping will be at the artists' expense.
