Artist Submission Guidelines
RS Hanna Gallery believes representing artists is an honor; and we give this process great thought, consideration and care. The Gallery is always interested in seeing new and recognized talent. However we balance our desire for new talent with the strong goal of keeping our gallery small enough in our total number of artists to effectively represent them and their career goals. By this we mean our combined ability to promote our artists through advertising and editorial coverage, devoting appropriate space to their work, and to develop a relationship with them so as best to represent them and their work.
We leverage an artist board of directors who have been in the business for over many years combined. We feel fortunate to have their guidance and input in the artists submission and review process which typically takes place in January of each year. This year, however, as we are moving in to our second location we will not be able to review and return packets until August of 2017. Sorry to have inconvenienced anyone who has already sent in their materials. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
First, take a detailed look at our website, or visit the gallery to understand the nature of work we exhibit. After you are familiar with our collection, and you feel your work would be appropriate for us, please carefully follow these guidelines. This will help ensure your work is given a thorough review. Submissions are accepted via regular mail and electronically by typing “Artist Submission” in the subject line and e-mailing labeled documents and images to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep the size of each of your attachments in mind before sending. All submissions are reviewed in january each year with our artist board. When the submission process is complete we will be in touch with the artists we would like to talk with and consider for possible representation. We will do our best to return all of your portfolios to you by the end of February. Also, we’ll update this page to let you know the process has been completed, artists have been contacted and materials are being returned. Thank you again for your thoughtful consideration, time and effort. When sending materials, please mark the envelope “Artist Submission” and mail to: RS Hanna Gallery - 208 South Llano St., Fredericksburg, Texas 78624. Appointments must be made for walk in submissions.
