Frequently Asked Questions:
Where can I get information about displaying my artwork in the Plymouth Center for the Arts?
The Gallery Committee has updated and revised some of the Guild's policies regarding shows at the Plymouth Center for the Arts and at the Cordage Park venue. The policies are now posted in the Documents section of the Guild's website
How are ribbons awarded for entries in the regular shows?
Effective January 2012, every regularly scheduled Russell/Members show will be judged, with ribbons awarded for First Place and three Honorable Mentions. Winners will be announced and ribbons awarded at the Opening Reception. A dozen experienced artists have agreed to serve on a panel of judges; each member will participate in judging one show in the upcoming year. In addition, visitors to the Center will be invited to vote for their favorite piece in each show; the votes will be tallied at the end of the show with the Popular Vote announced and ribbon awarded at the Opening Reception of the next show. Photographs and announcements will be sent to local newspapers.
How many pieces can I hang in a show?
Members may display two pieces in each show; there will be a hanging fee of $10 for each piece. Russell Gallery artists may submit up to two pieces for display in the Russell Gallery PLUS two pieces for display in the Members Gallery. Work may be displayed only 1 time in a 12 month period (does not include pieces that were in the Annual Juried Show).
I'm not receiving your mailings anymore; what happened?
The Plymouth Center for the Arts has gone green....class listings and other news and events will be sent ONLY via email unless you notify us that you wish to continue receiving information through the mail. You can do so by registering your email and preferences on our website or by calling 508-746-7222.
How do I register artwork for Guild shows?
Artwork must be dropped off ONLY during the designated registration hours. If you are unable to get to The Center during the registration periods, please make arrangements with a friend or fellow artist to register your work; the volunteers working at The Center during business hours do not have access to the registration materials and are unfamiliar with the storage and documentation procedures for shows.
I missed the pickup date; what do I do now?
Artwork not picked up during the designated hours at the end of a show is moved to a storage area. You will need to call the Center during regular business hours and schedule a pickup time with Joyce Stewart or Deborah Calvert; the front desk volunteers are not permitted to retrieve or release artwork. There is a $5 charge for work held beyond the scheduled pick up date.
I can't do the volunteer hours I committed to; who do I call?
If you are unable to cover your scheduled shift, be sure to contact the volunteer coordinators, as listed on the schedule. DO NOT send notification to Weekly Peek, since that email box is not regularly monitored.
