Artist Opportunities

Que Bonita January-May Show
 Call to Artists

     Que Bonita is an established home furnishings store located at 6934 Verde Road.   The store has a large mezzanine level Gallery. Currently the gallery is exhibiting a Show featuring the artwork of twenty-four local artists.

     Plans are underway to have another Show featuring the art of local artists. It is planned that the show will span from January 19, 2019 until May 3, 2019. The Show will begin with an opening reception to provide an opportunity for the community to meet and greet the local artists. The reception will be held on Saturday January 19, 2019 from 5:30-7:30 PM.

     The theme of the show is southwestern pottery and floral. Artwork displaying this theme will be accepted for jurying into the show. Oil, acrylic, mixed media, and watercolor paintings as well as glasswork and sculptures will be juried for acceptance. No giclees, or prints will be allowed. As in the current show larger pieces are encouraged.  Depending on the number of pieces juried into the show some pieces may be displayed throughout the store.

     There is a $35.00 nonrefundable entrance fee for each three pieces of art submitted. No pieces of art accepted for entry into the show shall be removed from the store until the conclusion of the show, except for those sold.

     Artwork submitted will be juried into three categories: Those for immediate display, those for supplemental display, and those not juried into the show.  Supplemental pieces will be displayed if space allows after those for immediate display are hung, and to replace pieces sold. There is no additional fee for displaying supplemental pieces. Supplemental pieces will remain in the possession of the artist until contacted by the Gallery.

     Artists wishing to participate in the Show need to fill out an online application. In your browser enter www.quebonitatucson.com. To locate the application once on the home page, click on the menu at the top of the page. Then go to the artist information section. Once completing and submitting the application you will be emailed directions for submitting your jpegs of your art pieces and a copy of policies and consignment agreement. Entrance fee check should be made out to:  Que Bonita

     Absolute deadline for online application and entrance fee submission is December 24, 2018.

     A consignment agreement and inventory sheet are required for participation in the event and will be completed and agreed upon by the artist and Gallery at the time of drop off of juried in artwork. Drop off for the event is Saturday, January 12, 2019.
