2023 Beverly Art Walk VENUE Artist Application
Your application has been submitted.
Acceptance notifications will be sent by August 4, 2023.
You will receive your specific installation coordination email about when and where to bring/install your work sometime between August 7 and September 6. Because this involves coordinating schedules between artists and venue owners and when they are open for business, it may require some back and forth to settle on a date and time that works for everyone. Please be responsive and do your part to help coordinate.
All artwork must be *READY TO INSTALL/HANG (framed if applicable and/or with appropriate hardware/wiring on back) by September 6. (This doesn’t mean that all artists will have their work installed on September 6, but you MIGHT, depending on the venue, so you should have it ready.)
*PLEASE NOTE: IF WE HAVE TO ADD ANYTHING TO YOUR PIECE IN ORDER TO INSTALL IT, IT IS NOT READY TO HANG. Having to add hardware or wire to individual pieces on site can really slow down the process. Please do not neglect this step and have them ready to hang in advance.
Installation will occur primarily between September 6 and September 21—depending on the specific arrangements made for each venue. Each artist or group of artists is responsible for bringing their (ready to hang) work on time and installing or helping to install if they are able to do so. A volunteer will be assigned to each group to help coordinate the installation.
The Beverly Area Arts Alliance is a volunteer-run arts organization committed to supporting artists and businesses as we all continue to recover from the impact of COVID-19. For this reason, we keep fees to a minimum and 100% of all proceeds will go directly to the artist.
The 2023 Venue Artist Fee is $35 and a link for payment of the fee will be sent along with notification letters.
