Submission Deadline: November 9, 2019

The​ ​Red​ ​Dot​ ​Annual​ ​Members’​ ​Show​ ​and​ ​Sale​ ​offers​ ​the​ ​opportunity​ ​for​ ​Alternator​ ​Members​ ​to sell​ ​their creations​ ​in​ ​this​ ​annual​ ​end-of-year​ ​exhibition.​ 

This year, we’re planning something new in our Member’s Gallery space. While the incredible artists in our community are showcased in the Alternator’s Main Gallery space, the Member’s Gallery will be taken over by an immersive installation presented by the Alternator’s Board. This installation will be unveiled as part of the HollyDaze Party, which acts as both Red Dot’s opening reception and a seasonal celebration. 

Alternator Members are guaranteed to have one (1) work included in the exhibition. Additional works will be juried in. A maximum of three works from each artist may be submitted for consideration. 

There are ​no​ ​limitations​ ​in​ ​medium​ ​or​ ​size​ ​of works​ ​submitted, however ​works​ must be ​priced​ ​between​ ​$25​ ​and​ ​$250.

75% of​​ ​proceeds go ​directly​ ​to the artist,​ ​with the remaining​ ​25%​ contributed to the gallery to support 2020 Alternator programming. ​Upon​ ​purchase,​ ​happy​ ​buyers​ ​will​ ​take​ ​their​ ​piece​ ​home​​ ​and​ ​a​ ​red​ ​dot​ ​will​ ​fill​ ​the​ ​empty​ ​wall​ ​space.​ ​Let’s​ ​fill​ ​the​ ​gallery​ ​with​ ​red!
