ONLINE SCREENING INSTRUCTIONS
A benefit of PAL membership is to show your artwork in our Member Shows in the Spring, in July during the Summer Art Festival, and in the Fall. Show dates and details are announced in PAL’s newsletter, The Palette. To participate in a Member Show, membership dues must be current, the artwork may not have been entered in a previous Member Show, and the artist must have previously screened in the medium of the artwork to be submitted.
SCREENING DEADLINES: January 31, April 30, September 30, November 30
You will be notified by email of your screening results within two to three weeks of submission. If you wish to enter a particular member show, please allow sufficient time for screening. The Screening Committee uses a numbered scoring system to evaluate each artwork based on technique, composition, originality, and interest. Mediums for screening include (but are not limited to):
Components and photographs must be original work of artist

Submission Photos: Make sure your photos are in focus, high quality, and properly lit. Photos must be cropped to display artwork only (no frame). If a photo is larger than 4 MB, please resize. 1920 pixels on the longest side is recommended. PCs and Macs have built-in software for resizing. Free programs such as picresize.com or pixlr.com may help you to crop, resize, and edit your photos.
Note: All PAL shows require 2D work to be properly framed with D-rings (no saw-tooth hangers). Gallery-wrapped canvases are accepted without a frame with clean or painted edges.
