• POLICIES:- This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT. We will NOT be accepting artwork including graphic or crude imagery, or nudity.- Please make sure that all submitted artwork is YOUR OWN. We will not be accepting artwork that is a direct replication of another's creators characters or art. If you choose to create Fan Art please make sure it is created by you in your own style and is not a direct replication of another creator's characters or art. We also will not be accepting artwork that has been stolen from another creator. If we discover that you have stolen or directly replicated another artist's, you will not be allowed to participate in the show and you will be blacklisted from participating in any future Artist Lodge event.- The Artist Lodge reserves the right to ask you to remove any artwork that we feel does not work within our featured artist policies.
ARTWORK- You're welcome to decide the title of your show, how much art you include, what size the pieces are, what medium they are, and how they are framed and presented. You will be responsible for personally handling everything. Your artwork can not be shipped to the Boys and Girls Club. By committing to organizing your own show, you will be responsible for creating, and bringing all of the artwork with you, as well as installing the work and running your gallery and sales that evening. The Artist Lodge is not responsible for shipping or collecting your artwork for you.- All artwork must be high quality, and family-friendly (no nudity or graphic imagery).
ARTISTS- All applicants must have final approval through The Artist Lodge. This regulation is in place because there may be some artists or creators that we refuse to work with because they violated contracts, were caught in copyright issues, etc. We reserve the right to deny acceptance to any creator for any previously stated or unstated reason we see fit. - We expect you to act professional, and to create high-quality, family-friendly artwork.
SALES- Along with the gallery walls, featured artists will have a designated 6x12' booth area that they can set up however they'd like. You will be provided with two 6' tables. Any other tables, shelves, linens, etc will be your responsibility to provide.- The Artist Lodge will not take a commission of any of your sales. You will be responsible for handling all of your sales at your table, and you must bring your own change to process cash payments. It is recommended that you also accept credit card payments. - Typically attendees at these events are not willing to spend more than $100 on an original piece of traditional art, and even less for an original digital piece. We recommend you put a price cap on your gallery pieces to help encourage sales, but you are not required to have a price cap or to sell your gallery pieces.
SHOW LOAD-IN- You may set up the day of the show only. You will be allowed to start setting up at 12pm the day of the show. You are not allowed to start setting up before 12pm.- Marissa Suto, The Artist Lodge Coordinator and Curator, will also be at the Boys and Girls Club to set up the group gallery and the art vendors. You are welcome to ask her any questions that you may have, but please note that she may not be able to assist you in the load-in/installation process.- Please note that the side-door that is used for load in has a 6" lip, and you will have to lift any carts to get them into the vendor room. If you do not wish to use the side door, the front door has a ramp that can accommodate rolling carts.- Featured Artists will need to be completely loaded in and set up by 4:45pm. After 4:45pm rolling carts will not be allowed on the show floor.- If you arrive after 4pm, you will not be allowed to set up and you will not receive a refund of your entry fee.
GALLERY WALLS- The Gallery walls are full, 4x8’ sheets of unfinished plywood. Three walls (back and front) are available for your use.- The walls are set up in an “H” (see photo below). This gives you four full walls to fill as well as the backs of the two vertical boards.- Any walls that are altered in a way that can’t be fixed (I.e. completely painted and can’t be sanded away, you fill the wall with an extraneous amount of holes from nails or screws, etc.) you will be asked to replace that wall. We are aware that the walls have pre-existing nail holes in them, and you will not be held responsible for those pre-existing holes.- To help preserve the gallery walls for future use, we ask that you minimally use nails during your gallery installation. Typically we use Velcro Contact strips to hang artwork, and reserve nails and screws for heavier works or works that require that kind of hanging device.
SHOW LOAD-OUT- Unless otherwise approved, you may not break down your booth or the gallery down until 9:30pm. Everything in the gallery needs to be broken down and moved outside or packed in your car by 11pm.
PHOTOS - We require that every Featured Artist provide The Artist Lodge with high quality photos of all the pieces in the show, as well as the corresponding title and medium. We put these images on our website to allow visitors to see past Featured Artists and to encourage them to apply.

The Artist Lodge is not liable if an artwork is stolen, damaged, or if there is a fire, flood, earthquake, or any inclement weather that may cause damage to the artwork.
If the Artist decides to break their contract, communication needs to be in writing via email.
