Submission FAQs

The Art Garage has an open submission policy for exhibitions and accepts artwork from emerging and established artists in all types of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, digital art, and mixed media. All artwork submitted is reviewed by a curated panel of judges and considered for each of our upcoming themed exhibitions. We select and show artists based on talent only. Participating artists who have been selected for an exhibition will receive an email following the entry deadline for each exhibit.

Who can participate? All visual artists in Wisconsin and surrounding areas.

How do you promote exhibitions? The Art Garage will advertise and promote the selected artists on our online media and host a formal, opening reception for each exhibit!

How is artwork selected? The Art Garage has a panel of three jurors that review and select the artists that submitted work. The judges vote through a process of elimination. Whoever receives the most votes solely gets to be in the show.
