Great Bay Art Show

Art of Great Bay 2017


Dear Artist,

Congratulations on your acceptance to the 13th annual Art of Great Bay show! We appreciate your time and interest in participating, and look forward to admiring your work in person at our fundraiser. Registration forms (pdf: 2017 Registration form) for the show will be emailed to accepted artists and should be submitted, along with the $25 registration fee, by Wednesday, March 6th. The fee can be submitted either by mail (to: 89 Depot Road, Greenland, NH, 03840) or via Paypal at the link below:




The drop-off date and time for submissions is Wednesday, April 5th, 9 a.m.-12 p.m, at the Hugh Gregg Coastal Conservation Center at the Great Bay Discovery Center in Greenland, N.H.  Tabletop artists may set up Thursday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. or Friday between noon and 4 p.m. We also ask that in addition to your pieces you bring a detailed list of inventory, especially if you have small pieces such as jewelry.  This will expedite our check-in and sales processing.  If you have your own means of display (racks, boards, boxes, pedestals, etc.) please bring those as well, and we will accommodate them within your space to the best of our ability.

All hanging items must be ready to hang, fitted with wire, hooks, or some other instrument; these items will be displayed on large standing panels. Please remember that all hanging works must fit onto a panel size of 30 inches by 48 inches; works exceeding this space will not be able to be included. We also request that all pieces are original works; with the exception of photography and giclée prints that are numbered limited editions.  Please also do not leave behind any materials used to transport artwork at the show, as we cannot be held responsible for their security.

A public opening reception will be held Friday evening, April 7th from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., and the show will continue Saturday and Sunday, April 8th and 9th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Artists do not need to be in attendance during the show but are encouraged to attend the Friday night reception; however, artists selling tabletop works will need to have representation the entire weekend. You will receive 70 percent of the proceeds from your sales, with 30 percent going to the Great Bay Stewards, a non-profit supporting the programs at the Discovery Center. We will also be grateful for a donation of a piece of your artwork for a raffle during the show. The pick-up date and time for unsold artwork is Monday, April 10th, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. If these times do not work for your schedule, please contact Allison Knab at art.show@greatbaystewards.org.
