    Holding a Mock Jury on Zoom

    Holding a mock jury on Zoom. Submissions open until April 5th.
    Please share this with your artist friends in all the art show groups.

    Images can be sent by either e-mail, Dropbox shared to my e-mail address Larry@bermanart.com or mail me a CD or flash drive. They must be named in the order they are to be viewed with a number (1 through 5 with 5 being the booth), your first and last name as part of the file name. Do not just drop the 5 images into an e-mail and expect them to remain in the order you put them in because when I take images from an e-mail they automatically sort by alphabetical order with numbers before letters. If you’re having a difficult time organizing your jury images (like on a phone or tablet) please give me a call. 412-401-8100. I’ll organize them for you if you send them in one at a time by e-mail with the image number and your name in the subject of the e-mail.

    If you don’t have a booth picture you can submit an additional art image as number 5. It will be shown below and to the right where the booth image is located in the template. The images can be any size larger than the size I need for the template which is 400×400 pixels. I’ve created an action in Photoshop to format the images to drop into the template. You can take your images from ZAPP if you enlarge them before saving them. Do not send me the ZAPP thumbnails, they are too small. If your images need to be edited by me, call me (412-401-8100) before sending me the images to work out what you need me to do.

    A short artist statement should be included if you want it to show during the image viewing. That artist statement needs to be as editable text, either in the body of the e-mail or as a separate text file so it can be copied and pasted into the image template, not as a screen capture. Your name will not show in the jury template, only your application number, which I will assign upon receiving your submission. I will e-mail you back with your application number. Please include your name, e-mail address and phone number at the top of the artist statement so I can call your if there’s a problem.

    I’m charging $30 for the jury submission. It’s going to take a great deal of my time to organize this and I want to pay the jurors. I will be announcing who the jurors are and their backgrounds prior to the mock jury. You can pay through PayPal to my e-mail address, call me with a credit card number or send a check. If you mail a check, please let me know when you upload the images.

    I’ll record the jury and if enough artists participate, I’ll probably break this up into multiple sessions so the files can be downloaded. No promises but I’ll try to upload it to YouTube also. Also if it works, I’ll hold a second jury later in the year and show your first set before your second set so you can see changes you’ve made in your jury submission.

    I’ll be taking submissions until April 5th, and the jury is Wednesday April 6th at 4:00 PM Eastern time.
