Artist Alley Submission Site

Participants will provide ALA with a framed original piece 8x10 or 11x17 of art on canvas or cardstock (by the applying artist) that is library, reading, literacy themed or appropriate in a library setting to be used in the Artist Alley Silent Auction. The Silent Auction raises funds for ALA scholarships and grants. 

Participants may not submit if they have previously participated for three or more consecutive years with at least two years since they have last participated. Note that there is no table sharing unless the work is a verified collaboration, this will be decided on a case by case basis. 

Artist Alley is limited to 30 participants. Those not selected can participate in a paid space consisting of a 4' skirted table in the Artist Alley area for a discounted rate. These additional paid spaces are limited. 

NOTE: ALL SUBMISSIONS WILL BE REVIEWED. Art deemed to contain adult material will not be accepted. Submission does not guarantee a table.
