Guidelines for a successful submission:

Quality images are extremely important, especially as we move into online spaces. Submissions should be consistent with what you were juried into the ArtWalk. Consider varying the size of the artworks offered. Perhaps a larger piece doesn’t fit within the exhibition, while a smaller piece does.
