Thank you to all who have participated in Open Figure Drawing for the past 35 years!


  1. Anyone who has ever been to Open Figure Drawing may submit artwork.
    You can submit 1 piece of framed figurative artwork for inclusion in the show.
    You can submit up to 2 additional photographed|scanned pieces digitally.
    All framed and digital artwork submitted will be included in the 35th Anniversary Group Show catalog.
  2. How to Enter
    Submit an entry form with your artwork.
  3. Deliver artwork to Delavan Studios* by Wednesday, June 19, 7 – 10 pm, during the Open Figure Drawing session.
    To submit images of up to 2 additional pieces of artwork, contact us for instructions.
    At the end of the show, please pick up your artwork directly from the Edgewood Gallery, on Saturday, August 10, 10 am – 2 pm. If you’re not able to pick up your artwork at this time, contact us and we will find an alternate solution.
    If you want to exhibit sculpture, contact us so we can make sure there’s space.
    * Our new location.
  4. Artwork must have identification and contact information on the back. Include your name and phone number (or e-mail or street address). Optionally, include a title, media, and size information. We also suggest signing and dating your work.
  5. All physical work must be professionally framed or of the same quality. We usually only require that artwork is framed & have a wire for hanging from a picture hook. Unlike our usual group shows, the Edgewood Gallery is a professional gallery. Please check with us if you are unsure about the frame you are using.
    Sculpture is also welcome (and does not need to be framed).
  6. Work can be for sale, but does not have to be. Edgewood Gallery takes a 33.3% commission on all sales.
  7. Package your artwork carefully.
    Project your art with a minimum of a piece of cardboard large enough to cover the glass. Protect the corners. Place the artwork in a back, or some other protective covering. Be sure to mark all the packing materials with your name or initials. This helps us repackage it when we take the show down.
