SUBMISSIONS FAQs 

Below is a list of pertinent Qs & As for KMAA members interested to submit their work into any of our Online Gallery exhibitions. It is strongly advised that you read and understand the Questions & Answers offered so that your submitted work can be considered for a given exhibition.  

Q. Is there any need to send in my actual pieces of artwork to the KMAA for an Online Exhibition?

A. No. There is no need to arrange for drop-off or pick-up of your work for an Online Gallery exhibition. We use the images that you supply in your entry on Submittables. A link to enter an Online Gallery exhibition will be emailed to current KMAA members prior to the start of an entry period. Be sure to check your inbox for the latest KMAA Constant Contact mailings and notifications.

 

Q. How important is the clarity and quality of the images I submit when entering an Online Gallery exhibition?

A. Extremely important. In all and especially in juried shows, images supplied by you will be juried and uploaded onto the Online Gallery. If an image is unclear, i.e., blurry, shows reflections or is poorly lit or photographed, your work, no matter how brilliant it is, may not be clear enough to be evaluated by a juror or appreciated by the public. Images that you supply on Submittables, upon entering a show, must be properly edited and formatted by the submitting artist. 

Q. Do I have to be a KMAA member to be considered into any of the Online exhibitions?

A. Yes. Only the work of CURRENT KMAA members will be considered for any of our exhibitions, online and in-person. Upon entering a show, all artists are required to check a box in certification that they are a current KMAA member. In the event that it is discovered that a submitting artist is not a current member, the submission will not be considered for a given exhibition.

Q. When entering an Online Gallery exhibition, how important is it to correctly spell work titles, mediums, etc., and to provide a functioning website (URL) link where people can view my artwork?

A. Extremely important. Proper spelling and formatting of all descriptions of your work is critically important because the text you provide will be what is uploaded into the Online Gallery. Proper grammar and use of quotations should all be checked for accuracy prior to submitting your work to an Online exhibition. Any link (URL) of a website and email address that you provide is what will be uploaded to the Online Gallery. If it is a misspelled or if it is a broken link, viewers will not be able to find you to learn more about your work.   

Q. Can I submit multiple entries for a given Online Gallery exhibition? 

A. No. Only ONE entry, per artist, per Online Gallery exhibition will be considered.
