Information for Artists

We encourage artists of all levels to consider presenting their work for consideration to a show that fits their theme or medium. We are adamant that all work be presented with a professional look: clean, in good condition, ready for hanging or displaying on a pedestal. Wall art must have wire on the back for our hook and cable system of hanging. We will be happy to instruct you on the proper method of installing wire. We hang around eleven shows a year, of which only two are by invitation only, our annual Plein Air Invitational and our show of Abstract Art in November.

If you have questions or like to submit work, please email gallery@borregoartinstitute.org. When accepted, an entry form will be emailed to you. If you show with us regularly, you only need to let us know that you are entering and let us know the size of your work.

Members of the Borrego Art Institute are not charged an entry fee. Non-members will pay a nominal fee for their entry.
Consider a membership, it has many benefits! Membership

• Accepted art (up to three pieces of any size) must be ready for display in a professional manner. We hang wall art from hooks on cables so work must have a suitable wire for the hook. Work may be framed and matted or just framed. Unframed work must have finished edges.

• Borrego Art Institute takes 45% of the selling price with the balance of 55% going to the artist. Price work accordingly. Over- priced work that doesn't warrant a high price does not sell so be realistic. We will not accept work that is not for sale or is greatly over-priced.
