Wallmountables is one of DC’s largest community art exhibitions and The DC Arts Center’s annual fundraiser! During WallMountables, anyone can purchase as many 2’ x 2’ squares on our gallery wall as they’d like and display whatever artwork they want! While simply showing your work is exciting enough, there’s always the chance that your work sells, too! Artists keep 100% of all proceeds when their work sells.
WallMountables opens on July 7, with a celebration starting at 7:00 PM. The exhibition will close on August 6, with a reception starting at 6:00 PM. The installation will take place from June 28 – July 6 via appointment. Deinstall takes place immediately following the closing reception on July 6. While many artists install to be ready for Opening Night, artists may join us at any point during the exhibition period.
Each 2’ x 2’ square sells for between $30 and $50 per square based on wall location. Hurry! All squares are sold on a first-come-first-serve basis using the registration process found at www.dcartscenter.org/wallmountables23. There is no limit to the number of spaces one can purchase.
You can also participate for free! When you become a new Artist Member, you get 2 free squares to use during WallMountables! That’s just one benefit in addition to gaining access to our space and a whole slew of other new membership benefits. Read all about the new membership program at www.dcartscenter.org/artistmember. Also, since we’re no longer taking a commission, artists are encouraged to include the cost of participation in the pricing of their art, which would also make it essentially free to participate! But we want to be clear. We’re not turning anyone away. If you need assistance in making your participation a reality, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
New this year: We’re now including the Nano Gallery as an option for artists to use during WallMountables. Take advantage of this premium location that will give your art a special feature!
Some other things to note, we’re going to be handling all payment processing on the artists’ behalf this year, we’ll take care of shipping (if applicable), and we’re bringing back the physical labels.
Oh! We also installed all-new professional museum-quality LED lighting, so your work will look extra beautiful this year!
