Are the shows juried?
Yes. Three images of your work plus one of your booth display must accompany your application form.
How do I submit images of my work?
You may send traditional slides or photographss, or digital images on CD or USB flash drive. Please note that submitted media (including flash drives) will not be returned. Scanned digital images should be 300dpi in RAW or JPEG (use highest quality setting) format. Digital photos should be eight megapixels (8MP) or greater in RAW or JPEG (use highest quality/lowest compression setting) format. All photographs should be in standard 4:3 aspect ratio (e.g., an 8MP photo would be 3456x2304) — no vertical (3:4) or "panorama" images, or images that are otherwise cropped or resized out of a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Do I have to provide my own booth and canopy?
Yes, we require a white canopy for every exhibitor. We have information on rental companies for canopies.
Can I share my booth with another artist?
Yes. However, both of the applicants must send separate applications, separate images, and a booth image showing the shared display.
What are the payment terms? Is full payment due with the the application?
While we certainly wouldn't mind full payment with the application, we are flexible. The application fee, a single $100 deposit (regardless the number of shows you are applying to), and post-dated checks for the balances of each show must be submitted with the completed application form. The balances for the Spring shows may be dated March 1 of the show year, while the balances for the Fall shows may be dated June 1 of the show year.
Do you have any recommendations for nearby hotels?
Of course! We have made arrangements at several local hotels for our participating artists at a reduced rate. When contacting these hotels, let them know that you're part of Rose Squared and reserve your room at least three weeks prior to the show.
