Frequently asked questions

I am interested in submitting, but have questions about the exhibition. Who should I contact?

Can I submit my artwork by delivering it physically?

  • No. All submissions must be submitted digitally via the ShowSubmit platform. Links to the submission form for each show can be found in their prospectuses.

I do not know what my framed size will be yet. Is a framed size required for submission?

  • No – framed sizes are not required at the time of submission. Once the works are juried, accepted artists will receive their acceptance email with a link to a separate form to submit your framed images and sizes. These details will be included in addition to your works in our online catalog.

I’m not sure how I want to price my work. Can I put a placeholder and ask to change it later?

  • No. We ask artists to please finalize ALL details of their entries during the submission period. Once the deadline has passed, all information is processed and we will NOT accept changes to details in any form, including those that are written on hangtags.

I made a mistake when I submitted my entry. Am I able to make changes to my submissions?

  • Yes, but this is only available before the submission deadline passes. Artists have the entirety of the submission period to make changes, by logging into their artist account on ShowSubmit. Refer to ShowSubmit’s FAQ page for further details.

I’m having trouble submitting! Who do I contact for support?

  • Some questions may already be answered via ShowSubmit’s FAQ page. If you still have trouble, please contact ShowSubmit at

The prospectus mentions attaching hangtags to my works. Where can I find these hangtags?

  • Once the artworks are juried, artists receive an acceptance email with important receiving information and a link to the hangtags for printing.

I submitted, but didn’t receive an email notification as to whether I was accepted or rejected!

  • All acceptance / rejection emails come from and not Salmagundi. Please check both your inbox and junk mail for emails from ShowSubmit. Make sure that you are checking the email address that you had used during submission. If you submitted multiple works, you will receive a separate email for each work. Please keep this in mind if your email client groups your emails together.
