Finder Quigley // Call for Art // Extended!

Finder Quigley
Pittsburgh, PA
Entry deadline: Tuesday, September 8th 2015

Finder Quigley is a quarterly pop-up exhibition put together by The AP Collection and held at a secret location in Pittsburgh, PA. Twenty-five guests are invited to connect one-on-one with artists in an intimate setting and are able to purchase original work at an incredibly affordable price. This event is a re-formatting of the AP Collection podcast—instead of listening to a conversation between two creatives, new and established art collectors / art enthusiast can connect with local artists in a meaningful way by asking questions and getting a better idea of the artist’s process. (There’s complimentary food and booze of course). See how the June 2015 event went!

Next event: October 15th from 6:30-9PM
Location given after work is accepted.

We are looking for 10 artists to show up to three original prints at the one-night only event on October 15th and be available during the whole event to talk to collectors and engage about their work. Artists must live within a 50 mile radius of Pittsburgh.

A non-refundable entry fee of $15 entitles the artist to submit up to three (3) images of original prints completed in the last 3 years (2013–2015).

Type of work we are accepting:

  • Screen prints
  • Lithography
  • Intaglio
  • Digital prints
  • Photos

We are not accepting reproductions of original work (a print of an oil painting, for example, is a no-go). Work must be no larger than 9 inches by 12 inches, matted and either wrapped in a plastic sheath or framed, and ready to hang. Artists are responsible for submitting work that is properly archived and protected.

Our goal is for every artist to sell out. In order to do this, we ask that pieces should be priced between $50–$650, and not to exceed the maximum for a single work. There will be a 20% commission on all works sold.
