The final in a three part photo series

Renewal is the final exhibit in a three part photo series focusing on the positive aspects of life. Renewal is a new beginning, whether spiritually, physically, mentally, or metaphorically. It is a new chapter in an hour, in a day, in a season, in a life.

Concluding the series that began with Hope and Survival, Renewal is both the final chapter in the series and the open door to the future. Each of the three events will have individual awards and an exhibition of the juror-selected work.


To be announced.

Upon notification of acceptance of work, the artist must ship or hand deliver the accepted piece(s) to arrive at the Art Incubator Gallery Kensington location no later than May 12, 2012. All hand delivered entries must be picked up on June 26, 2012. No accepted work may be withdrawn before the end of the exhibition.

View the general guidelines for Gallery standards and shipping procedure here.

All work must be for sale at prices set by the artist.  The Howard Avenue Arts Incubator retains a commission of 40% of sales price.  Payment to the artist will be mailed within 30 days after receipt of proceeds from sales.  Prices should be an accurate reflection of the artist’s sales history and therefore should not be inflated.

The Gallery will insure all works while in possession for theft or loss for the artist's share of the retail price.  All reasonable care will be taken with accepted art, but it is clearly understood by the artist that the Gallery assumes no responsibility and shall not be held responsible for any damage of any kind caused or occurring during shipping.
