Entry Information -- For Artists:

Dear Artists:

The annual “Anchor Splash” event is just around the corner.  The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 6, 2016, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and is once again promising to be a successful event. The venue is newly opened Bask Hotel, 814 Shepard Street, Big Rock Landing in downtown Morehead City. This annual art show and sale benefits the Community Council for the Arts.

All participating artists will receive a free ticket to this event, otherwise tickets to attend are $35 and are available at the Arts Center. There is no charge to enter your work in the event; however we hope all of you submitting work will also attend this event and that you will promote it to others in the community and region. Remember, the more people there, the greater the potential for sales!  We have also found that events where the artists attend and who are event participants have a greater potential of sales than those where artists are absent.
All artwork submitted for this exhibit and sale must be framed or matted/shrink wrapped or in plastic sleeves.  3-D work including textiles, sculpture, glass, metals and pottery must be suitable for display.  Each artist is limited to three (3) works.  We are providing you with three (3) labels at the bottom of this page for identification of your work.  Please attach these labels to the back of your work prior to the time of submission.  The Arts Council staff will be responsible for transporting your work to and from the event venue and displaying it for sale.  All work must be for sale.  The Arts Council will retain a 35% commission on any work sold, so please price your work accordingly!  Payment for sold pieces will be within 30 days of the sale.  Art needs to arrive at the Arts Center on Thursday, July 28 and Friday, July 29, 2016.

We realize this is a short turn around, but hope to see your work entered for this wonderful event. This is a terrific way you can have exposure in the community and extended region, sell your work and support the Arts Council!

The Staff, Community Council for the Arts
