5. What is the Art Garage’s stance on controversial artwork?
The Art Garage accepts and displays visual artwork regardless of subject matter. We realize that some artwork may be controversial or offensive to some, but we stand by our country's freedom to allow people to express their worldview through artistic expression. The visual, performing, and literary arts are some of the world’s strongest and most effective instruments of personal and collective freedom. The Art Garage is in an influential and pivotal position through its opportunity to provide a platform to all artists, issues, and subject matter. With public support, all involved in our local arts community can actively support a free and democratic creative culture. We are also a community arts organization which recognizes the rights of our community members to choose whether or not to expose themselves or their loved ones to certain artwork, exhibits, and performances. When appropriate, the Art Garage will give advance notice on our website or on a sign within our facility notifying you of the exhibition of artwork with potentially controversial content.
6. How long is the portfolio review process?
The portfolio review process usually takes between 2-4 weeks.
7. If not accepted, can I submit my portfolio again?
Yes, you can submit a portfolio with new artwork 6 - 24 months after your original submission at no additional cost (you do not have to pay the submission fee again).
8. Can I refer other artists?
Yes! For each artist that is referred by you AND accepted into the Visual Artist Partnership Program, you will receive a $15 referral check. This is like receiving your submission fee for free! (Maximum of up to 6 referrals)
