Jury Process

Octagon Gallery Shop Submission Policy


A jury meets four times a year to consider new work for consignment in the Octagon Gallery Shop. Selection of artists is based on several criteria, including craftsmanship, market, and media. Selection is by artist, not by individual work, so the submission of a variety of pieces that represent the artist’s work overall is required.


Artists can submit actual work, or digital photographs of their work the week prior to the jury selection. The deadline for submitting items is 5:30 pm the day before the jury meets. Each submission must include artist’s name and contact information, artist statement or biography, and price recommendations for the work submitted.


Artists who are approved to sell work through the Shop do so through consignment with 60% of the retail price going to the artist. Any further questions should be directed to Terrie Hoefer, Octagon Shop Manager at shop@octagonarts.org. 515.232.5331
