Randy Higbee Gallery
8th Annual 6” Squared Exhibition and Sale – OILS and ACRYLICS, Over $8000 in Cash and Awards

8th Annual 6” Squared Exhibition and Sale


Over $8000 in Cash and Awards


The Randy Higbee Gallery is hosting the eighth annual 6” Squared Exhibition and Sale. Once again, we will bring nationally acclaimed representational artists to a spectacular venue in Orange County, California. The opening will be held on Saturday, December 2. Artists are invited to submit up to 10 paintings measuring 6”x6” in size. The gallery will hang a maximum of four pieces per artist but we will accept extras to fill in when items are sold.  It is a spectacular show. It will be the artist’s obligation to get the artwork shipped to the gallery in a timely fashion. The gallery will display over 500 pieces and we have averaged selling over 200 pieces for three years in a row.

The gallery will work on a 65/35 split with 65% going to the artist. The gallery will have the option to give an additional 15% discount to its base of art resellers, artists purchasing from artists and clients who make multiple purchases. This 15% discount is taken off the retail price and be shared by artist/gallery. The discount has been a crucial marketing tool in getting our sales into the 175+ numbers.

All pieces need to be for sale (Exhibition and Sale!) and priced reasonably. Do not price your pieces to low. Do not price your pieces to high. We will not have anything priced under $250 at final sale. Keep in mind that if 15% comes off the top of your piece, the sale might be for $149.00, which is below the minimum selling point for this show. Be sure your piece is priced at least at $250.

Format and Media
This is a 6x6 show. It is not a miniature show. If you have a 6x7, be sure to trim that extra inch off your piece before you send it to us! All traditional media (oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, etc) will be accepted. Jewelry, sculpture, etc will not be accepted for this show. Eligibility open to all artists painting in traditional, representational work in traditional media. We are not going to trim your work so be sure it comes to us the right size.

Entry and Fee Application
There is a $40 entry fee for 3 pieces. Each additional piece is an $8.00 charge. You may enter a maximum of 10 entries keeping in mind that we will hang a maximum of 4 pieces at one time by any one artist.  All entry fees are non-refundable and must be paid by the entry deadline.

Word of Warning....
This is the largest art show in the United States.  This is a mammoth undertaking.  This year’s show will be dramatically smaller than prior years.  We have previously hung over 750 pieces, but it is mandatory for our own sanity that we reduce the scale of the Exhibition by over 250 pieces.  This means that many people will not be accepted.  If you are not excepted, you will receive a $40 credit from the website.  This credit can be used from January 1st, 2018 to February 28, 2018.

All frames must be purchased from or at the Randy Higbee Gallery showroom. I will have a full page handout to justify this policy for those that would like it. We will be sending out framing specials and we have many framing options at many price points including $36 frames and an entire section of 6x6 frames on our website.

Artists will have the option of bringing in or mailing unframed works to be framed by the gallery after they have been accepted in the show. The artist is responsible for which frame they would like on their piece.  It is the artist’s responsibility to contact the gallery with regards to framing. Please call us toll free at 1-800-506-7624 if you have any questions.

Prizes and Awards
There will be multiple awards totaling in excess of $8000. The awards will be 50% cash and 50% credit for frames at the website.

There will be also be awards supplied by supporters and vendors of the Randy Higbee Gallery and Credit must be used within 90 days of the close of the show.

We need two forms, which you will supply to us upon your acceptance. One will be an information sheet to be taped to each piece of the art accepted and the other will be a form stating your return shipping and insurance information.

Return Shipping
There is a packaging and return shipping fee of $18.00 for the first piece and $6.00 for each additional piece. The gallery will lose money packing and shipping your pieces at this price. You must be sure to include your shipping and insurance information when you submit your work. We spend more time trying to get pieces sent back than we do processing them into the show. Please help us!
