all together now - artist submission form

Interested in selling your work with All Together Now? Please read the information below and use the form to apply.

Artwork and programming that is thoughtful, engaging, and inspiring is what we are all about. Because our space will be open to the public, we believe in ART FOR ALL, meaning we are only able to consider works that are available to be viewed by anyone. Please do not waste your time submitting your work if this is not your audience. Though we wholeheartedly believe that artists should make whatever art they need to, and that all art has a right to exist, we also know that art relies on certain platforms and audiences, and our audience for this exhibition is everyone.

All Together Now is a champion of equal opportunities for all. We encourage you to submit as you are because that’s the best way to be. No matter your race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation or identity, immigration status… you are welcome here.

**FRAMING GUIDELINES All art must be framed and ready to hang in simple frames in black, white, or natural wood. The actual frame moulding does not need to exceed 2” and must be submitted with backing wire or french cleats and ready to hang. Your work does not need to be professionally framed, which can be costly (and collectors often have work framed the way they prefer after purchase). This look can be achieved by utilizing frames already on the market. (If choosing a frame from Ikea, please consider floating your work on a matboard using linen tape or a comparable archival material rather than using the provided mat.) If you’re interested in professional framing we suggest hiring https://framethisatl.com and including the cost in your retail pricing. Why let people purchase this when they can own original, local art? Other frame suggestions:
