"WRAP art shows have changed my life in a big way for which I will be forever grateful. It has been just one year since I have gotten involved and I am a happier/healthier/stronger person/artist because of it. I've met many wonderful new artist friends and am having a great time. Suddenly I am understood, what a relief, since I've surrounded myself with sensitive creative artists."

Guidelines

  1. The program is open to NONPROFESSIONAL artists and craftspersons living in Wisconsin or neighboring states. Each artist determines for themselves if they are nonprofessional. Professional means supporting yourself solely with your art. Artists ages 14 and older are eligible to enter. The entry fee is $30.
  2. All work must be ORIGINAL in concept and design. It must have been done by the person signing it. Copies of other artwork, copyrighted photographs, or patterns cannot be accepted. No decorated kits are acceptable. Paintings made as copies during a teacher’s demonstration are not eligible. Work must have been completed within the last two years.
  3. In some workshops, you may enter up to three works; other workshops such as Madison and Janesville allow only two works due to space limitations. See details under UPCOMING EXHIBITS/WORKSHOPS.
  4. Media accepted for exhibit include PAINTING: Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, but no giclee reproductions of paintings; GRAPHICS: Drawing, Prints, Pastel; SCULPTURE: Any Material, Mixed-Media; CRAFTS: Clay, Wood, Metal, Fiber, Paper; PHOTOGRAPHY: Black and White, Color, Digital (print or photograph).
  5. All paintings, graphics, and photographs must be dry, framed, and ready to hang (with wire attached from side to side on the back). No tension devices will be accepted in place of frames (they break). Plastic frames are discouraged for the same reason. Any wall-hung sculpture or crafts must be ready with necessary hanging devices. Wall-hung art may not exceed 20 pounds or contact regional coordinator for permission. Carefully pack small or fragile items.
  6. UW-MADISON AND THE WORKSHOP SPONSORS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGES OR LOSS OF YOUR WORK. You must provide your own insurance if desired.
  7. If you have read these guidelines, you are ready to select a workshop. You may enter as many workshops as you like. On the day your artworks are due, bring your work to the exhibit site at the time indicated (or mail to the coordinator). Be sure to attach an identification label to each piece. The entry fee ($30) covers the exhibit of artworks and participation in the workshop. You many bring guests to the workshop for $5.00 each. Pick up your artwork at the end of the workshop day. Now, complete your ONLINE ENTRY and mail your check to the group or coordinator sponsoring that workshop.
