Since July 2000, the Del Mar Art Center Gallery has been promoting local fine artists.
The Gallery is focused on discovering new talent; toward this end, the Gallery reviews
original works of art in all mediums the last day of each quarter, called Preview days.
DMAC rotates the artwork in the gallery each quarter. On the preview day, existing
members are asked to bring in at least 3 original works to the Center at 10 a.m. No artwork will be accepted after 11 am. All paintings, pastels, oils, etc., are to be framed and ready to hang. Giclée prints will be accepted if they are numbered. Artists should return between
1 pm and 3 pm to pick up works not accepted, and to retrieve previously hung artwork. This procedure only applies to existing members.
There is a limit to the number and size of works an artist may exhibit, due to our limited space. Two art bins are available free of charge for unframed shrink-wrapped artwork.
Artwork placed in the bins cannot exceed the price of $200. We reserve the right to withhold acceptance of inappropriate artwork.
Accepted artists must sign a contract and consignment sheet, and must agree to sit in the gallery for 8 hours per month, in addition to volunteering for events and other responsibilities as they arise. The gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday 11 am to 6 pm (closed Monday). If an artist is unable to fulfill their allotted time they are required to pay $40 per shift. If an artist fails to meet these requirements, their work will be removed from the exhibition. All artists, exhibiting or not, are required to meet these requirements.
Membership dues are 150.00 annually non-refundable. There is a hanging fee per piece for artwork that has been accepted for each show rotation. (the hanging fee varies with size of work).
