Guidelines for Submitting Artwork

Please copy and paste the following in your email with your art submission and of course provide the necessary information. We need this from every artist who wishes to participate sin our exhibitions.

Information about you the artist:
Country of residence
Website or webpage URL

Your artwork entry:

Title of work
Statement (if required)

Group Exhibitions . . .
All artists submitting work to be considered for inclusion in any of our exhibitions should first read the proposal and requirements. Proposals for these art shows will specify a particular theme, concept, deadline date for entries, eligibility, and the number of entries an artist may submit for consideration. If  a statement is required or suggested, it will state how an artist’s entry relates to the show’s theme, not a general description of the artist’s work or artistic process. Résumes/CVs, bios, and photos of the artists are not required for group or collective shows. Please do not send us any of those materials. Exhibitions are only juried by the quality and appropriateness of the art works submitted. If an artist has submitted work that does not meet the requirements and theme of a particular exhibition, it will not be accepted into that show.

Upon receipt of an entry, we will verify by email that an entry has been received. If you do not get a receipt by email, then we did not receive your entry. Please contact Harriette Lawler or one of the other council members via Facebook if this happens. Artists whose work has been accepted into a show will receive acceptance emails on the notification date. After each show, we will also send out exhibition certificates to every artist who participated.

We do not email rejection notices to artists. If you did not receive an acceptance email, then your work was not selected. We receive 100s of art submissions and miscellaneous inquiries. We must limit our notifications to receipts of art submissions and acceptance emails.

All curators for our collective exhibitions are artists themselves. We generally keep our curators’ names anonymous, unless they wish to be listed online as the curator of a show.

As Illume is an online art gallery, we do not need high resolution images of your artwork. The required resolution for images is 10 inches or 26 centimeters in height at 72 dpi. When submitting images to Illume, please put all or part of its title in its file name for identification. List all your information in your email or in an attached text fle in the formats below.

Send art submissions to illume@windstream.net

Solo Exhibitions . . .
In our frst year 2019, we were presenting many solo exhibitions to let people know who we were and establish the gallery's reputation. Beginning in 2020, our main focus became collective exhibitions in order to provide a venue for more artists to display their work. We no longer host solo exhibitions.
