Randy Higbee Gallery
6" Squared Exhibition and Sale - 2014 - Over $8000 in Cash and Awards

Over $8000 in Cash and Awards

6” Squared  Exhibition and Sale
Oil and Acrylic Prospectus


The Randy Higbee Gallery is hosting the fifth annual 6" Squared Exhibition and Sale. Once again, we will bring nationally acclaimed traditional representational artists to a spectacular venue in Orange County, California. The Opening will be held on Saturday, December 7th. Artists are invited to submit up to 10 paintings measuring 6x6” 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 very good 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 600 pieces and we have sold over 180 per year for two years in a row.

The gallery will work on a 70/30 split with 70% going to the artist. The gallery will have the option to give an additional 15% discount to its' base of art resellers, artists purchasing artists and clients who make multiple purchases. This 15% discount is taken off of the retail price and will be shared by artist/gallery.  This discount has been a crucial marketing tool in getting our sales into the 180+ numbers.

All pieces need to be for sale (Exhibition and Sale!) and priced reasonably.  Do not price your pieces too low.  We will not have anything priced under $200 at final sale. Keep in mind that if 15% comes right off the top of your $200 piece, the sale might be for $160, which is below the minimum selling point for this show.  Be sure your piece is priced at at least $225.

Format and Media
This is a 6"x6" 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 you 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 by one artist at a time. 

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 who would like it. We will be sending out framing specials and we have many framing options at many price points including $30 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 1-800-506-76241-800-506-7624 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 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 be supply to us upon your acceptance.  One will be an information sheet to be taped to each piece of 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 $12.00 for the first piece and $4.00 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!
