Submission Instructions

  • We will accept electronic submissions only. 
  • Complete the online registration form, including the proper label information for all the pieces you will be submitting.
  • Include signed Artwork Release form, attached to the back of each piece. 

Submission Guidelines

  • We can only accept 2D work.
  • Work should be mounted or matted – no frames, no glass
  • Canvas pieces do not have to be mounted or matted. 
  • Work should be no larger than 26″ in either direction with the mat or mount.
  • Please make sure there is a backing to matted work to protect it from tearing. 
  • Please make sure students name and school are written on the back of each piece.
  • The MAEA and Montserrat College of Art maintains the right not to exhibit work which is inappropriate for the venue. 
  • The exhibit space is a gallery space at Montserrat College of Art in Beverly. MAEA will not be insuring the exhibit. 

Packing Instructions:

  • Attach the Packing List form on the outside of your package(s). 
  • A sheet of newsprint paper over the front protects most work. 
  • If you can pack the work in a portfolio, that is easiest, but if not, it would be best to stack larger pieces between two pieces of corrugated board, and tape the boards, or wrap in paper, and then tape. Please include your name and school on your portfolio, if you’d like it returned to you.
  • Works on canvas should be individually wrapped. Don’t forget to protect corners.
