Work Eligible

Any woman artist may submit for jurying one original work. Giclees, photography, computer generated images, crafts, work done under instruction, derived from published photographs or previously shown in a CLWAC Annual Open Juried Exhibition are NOT eligible. Work by Members shown in the Members' Exhibition is eligible. No POR or NFS - all work must be for sale.


Eligible media: Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Pastel, Graphics, Collage and Mixed Media. Artwork, including frame, must not exceed 42 inches in width or height. All 2-D work must be suitably framed, wired and ready for hanging. Gallery-wrap is permitted. Plastic glazing is required if a metal frame is used and for shipped work.


Sculptors must submit 2 views (except for wall hangings) following the IMAGE FORMAT instructions. All sculpture must be light enough for one person to handle. Wall- hung work must be equipped with a hanging device. Ceiling-hung works or installation works are NOT eligible. Do not submit very small sculptures. There are no small display cases for very small work. Sculptors living within 50 miles of the National Arts Club must provide their own pedestals or pay an additional $25 pedestal rental fee.

Image Specifications

  1. All images must be high quality jpeg (jpg) image files.
  2. Set your camera to the highest possible quality image, use good lighting on your painting without any glass in front of it, and use a tripod for your camera.
  3. Once the photo is taken and on your computer, you must crop out all parts of the photo that are not the actual painting; do not show mat, frame, etc, only the painting itself.
  4. If not experienced with digital images, please follow one of the step-by-step tutorials offered both on the CLWAC website and here on this ShowSubmit page.
  5. Please save at 300 dpi resolution, with a size of 900 pixels on the longer side of the image (i.e. for a horizontal format, the width should be 900 pixels; for vertical format, the height will be 900 pixels; for a square format both dimensions are 900 pixels.). The upload system will not accept very large files, so you must reduce the native image size to these specifications.

Prepare your image using these specifications BEFORE you start the entry process!

Filename Instructions

Name your image file

Use the following protocol for giving your image file a name for submission: Start with your last name, followed by an underscore, followed by your first initial, followed by another underscore, then the title of the image without spaces, then make sure it has the extension ".jpg".

For example: Carson_R_SilentSpring.jpg

Shorten long titles in the filename, please, and remove all spaces and quotation marks.

PLEASE NOTE: The Title of your piece appears in two places in your entry.

(1) When giving a filename to the digital image file you will upload, follow the above procedure, e.g. Carson_R_SilentSpring.jpg

(2) When filling out the entry field for the Title of the piece, on the same page where you will enter the medium, size and price, type the Title just as you want it to appear in the catalog, e.g. Silent Spring.
