Annual Art Salon
Most of ArtTram's exhibitions are free of charge. The Salon d'Art is an exception. The registration fee must be paid before the start of the exhibition. Registration for Salon d’Art gives you the ability to use display stands as well. When you have completed the “All Exhibitions” registration form, you must also complete the “Exhibition Display Stand” registration form if you wish to present up to 6 of your unframed works. (Maximum dimensions 36inches X 24inches and must include mat and a secured plastic film covering).
The JPEG photos to be submitted during the registration stage are used in our online gallery; their quality is therefore essential. The optimal characteristics of these images must respect the following attributes:
Total dimensions: Minimum length or width of 1200 pixels
Image size: maximum 1.5M
Resolution: maximum 120 dpi
File format: JPEG
Title of works
To facilitate the identification of the image files included in the registrations, we ask you to apply these simple rules in naming your photos:
Artist's last name followed by the 1st letter of the first name, title of the work (shortened if required) medium, and dimension in inches (height X width). See example below:
Ex : LastnameA.Title.Medium.20X18.jpg
