Art Gallery

This exhibit is open to all stereo artists looking for a place to show their work at NSA in an essentially non-competitive setting -- the exception being the "Artist's Choice Award," bestowed on one Gallery exhibitor by their fellow exhibiting artists. We encourage new approaches to 3D art, experimental efforts, you name it, we will consider it. This exhibition has an exciting and unexpected air thanks in part to its self-sustaining and forming nature. The size and content of the exhibit is driven by the folks that submit and the space and facilities made available at the conference venue.

9. TABLES WILL BE PROVIDED AND EFFORTS WILL BE MADE TO SUPPLY EASELS, HOWEVER AVAILABILITY OF THESE ITEMS VARIES YEAR TO YEAR WITH THE VENUE. ARTISTS SHOULD BE PREPARED TO PROVIDE ALL THE HARDWARE AND FURNITURE NEEDED TO INSTALL AND DISPLAY THEIR WORK. THE CONVENTION IS RESPONSIBLE ONLY FOR TABLES AND EASELS IF ANY ARE AVAILABLE.

10. ARTISTS WILL BE ASSIGNED A SPECIFIC LOCATION AND AMOUNT OF SPACE WITHIN THE ROOM(S). IT WILL HELP ENSURE THAT EVERYONE GETS A FAIR QUOTA OF THE SPACE AVAILABLE. EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO ASSIGN AVAILABLE SPACE FAIRLY AMONGST ALL ARTISTS SUBMITTING WORK. PRIORITY FOR SPACE WILL BE GIVEN AS FOLLOWS:

THE VOTES WILL BE TALLIED BY THE GALLERY CHAIR OR, IF THE CHAIR IS ALSO EXHIBITING, BY A NON-EXHIBITING CONVENTION ATTENDEE SELECTED BY THE CHAIR. WE ASK THAT ARTISTS NOT VOTE FOR THEMSELVES. THE WINNER WILL BE PRESENTED WITH THE AWARD AT THE ANNUAL BANQUET.
