Works may be two- or three-dimensional in any style, technique or medium. Photographic and digital works will be considered. Materials, compositions and subject matter are open to personal interpretations.

Pieces may be black, white, or one pure color of the artists' choice that is not be mixed — no tints, shades or tones of the primary hue may be used.

For 2-D works, the maximum size is 48 inches to 60 inches. Sculptures, ceramics, constructions, found objects and other 3-D works should adhere to reasonable size and weight guidelines. Photographs and works on paper must be framed (no glass). Canvas works must be gallery wrapped. All works must be wired and ready for display.
