Art on Loan Program
August 31, 2015
Washington DC
Dear Artist,

Welcome to the fifth year of the Art on Loan program for Senator Michael Bennet's Washington D.C. office, coordinated by the Colorado Artists Guild.

We have exciting news, beginning with this year's submission, we have now been asked to expand this art on loan program to include Senator Cory Gardner's office as well.

Senator Bennet and his staff are again looking for 12 to 15 pieces of 2D artwork and possibly 2 or 3 sculptural pieces. Because the Senator's office and conference rooms have 25 ft ceilings, they would like large pieces of artwork with a minimum height of 36 inches (including frame). As for style, they continue to be open to all submissions.

Senator Gardner and his staff are looking for a mix of sizes. Like Senator Bennet's office, they have a few rooms with 25ft ceilings, but they also have other rooms that are smaller, so could use a few pieces of artwork in the 18" to 24" size range. The style they are looking for is a little more specific. Senator Gardner enjoys artwork that is more historic, and because he is from the eastern plains he would like see artwork that represents that part of the state as well.

Loan Program:
Open to Colorado Artists Only
Loan term - 1 to 2 years
Shipping will be paid for by the Senator's office
Artwork will be insured

Gallery Hours: Mon – Fri 8-5, Sat 10-2, Sundays during performances

Judge: Ken Elliott www.kenelliott.com "There is paradox in Ken Elliott's landscapes: they pulse with powerful color, and yet collectors speak of his paintings as exuding a sense of calm. They contain choreographed rhythm and order, even within the seeming disorder of winter trees along a creek," Southwest Art Magazine, May, 2012

The PSC invites each signature and master signature member to exhibit a small, cohesive body of work (3 -5 paintings) in Journeys, the 2015 Signature Members' show. We challenge you to embark on a personal visual exploration of a subject or place or an approach to the medium.

The work will be judged for cash prizes. Work submitted should be completed within the two years prior to the show. Work from other PSC shows is eligible for Journeys, however, paintings included in this exhibit WILL NOT be eligible for future PSC Member or Mile High shows.  

Eligibility: Open to dues-paid Signature and Master Signature members of the Pastel Society of Colorado. Original paintings only: no class work or copied work. Work must have been completed within the last two years. The Pastel Society of Colorado and Lakewood Cultural Center reserve the right to reject inappropriate subject matter. Every attempt will be made to hang all the artwork that is delivered based on space available. All paintings must hang for the duration of the show.

FEES: $36.00 for 3 -5 paintings. The Pastel Society guarantees that at least three paintings per member will be hung. All paintings must be for sale. A commission on sales of 40% will be charged with 30% to LCC and 10% to PSC. The gallery will handle all sales transactions. Net proceeds will be paid to artists at the conclusion of the show.

Specifications: Must be suitably framed with D hangers and wire. NO saw tooth hangers. NOTE: Please wire the paintings so that the high point reaches 3 inches below the top of the frame. Attach labels to back of paintings.

Liability: Artwork will be insured only while on the premises of Lakewood Cultural Center during the dates specified on this form for the show. Submission constitutes agreement for PSC and/or LCC to use these materials for promotional purposes.
