Call for Sculpture Submissions Extended

Posted July 29, 2021 at 4:51 am by

San Juan Islands Sculp­ture Park, an inde­pen­dent 501 ©(3) non-prof­it, will be accept­ing sculp­ture sub­mis­sions this summer.

All sculp­tors are wel­come to sub­mit works using the guide­lines below between June 6th and Aug 11th, 2021.

We do not require any bio­graph­i­cal mate­r­i­al with your sub­mis­sion. Sculp­tures will be select­ed on the mer­its of the art and how they will com­ple­ment our park.

All sub­mis­sions must be deemed safe by us and should be suit­able for exhi­bi­tion in an out­door set­ting and be capa­ble of with­stand­ing occa­sion­al high winds, rain, and pos­si­ble snow.

Cho­sen art­works can be installed between Sept 15th-Oct 10th, 2021. Instal­la­tion appoint­ments will be made based on our sched­ule and avail­abil­i­ty plus weath­er con­di­tions. Overnight accom­mo­da­tions may be pro­vid­ed depend­ing on Roche Har­bor Resort’s room avail­abil­i­ty. Instal­la­tion assis­tance is available.

Heav­ier and larg­er exhibits may require rental equip­ment which would be the respon­si­bil­i­ty of the exhibitor.

Artist agrees to place­ment for a two-year peri­od if the work is not sold soon­er. A 30% com­mis­sion will be tak­en on all sculp­tures sold dur­ing the exhi­bi­tion peri­od and for 90 days after.

We are not respon­si­ble for trans­porta­tion to and from the park. We may be able to accept cer­tain exhibits by ship­ment to us.

Sculp­tures are to be deliv­ered and installed in the park by the artist or by the artist’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the site loca­tion des­ig­nat­ed by park man­age­ment. After accep­tance and before instal­la­tion, artists may be asked to pro­vide a dia­gram or descrip­tion of any instal­la­tion require­ments. All exhibits must be secured for safe­ty and secu­ri­ty pur­pos­es. Rebar and ready mix will be sup­plied by the park on instal­la­tion day.

SJISP takes all pre­cau­tions to pro­tect and main­tain con­signed sculp­tures but artists must insure their own art­works for dam­age, theft and liability.

Art that dif­fers from the dig­i­tal entry pho­to may be reject­ed pri­or to installation.

The SJISP will reim­burse up to $300 trav­el expens­es after instal­la­tion, and after sub­mis­sion of valid receipts (allow 30 to 60 days for processing).

Con­tact us using the form pro­vid­ed on our web­site with any ques­tions you may have.

The exhi­bi­tion agree­ment is avail­able for down­load here.

To enter your sub­mis­sion, use our online entry form or email your images to Use “Sub­mis­sion” in the sub­ject line. No images larg­er than 5MB. Each image must include dimen­sions, mate­r­i­al and approx­i­mate weight. Each artist may sub­mit up to five sculp­tures. We will noti­fy all artists whose work has been accept­ed by August 25th.
