2022 IX art show

Submit Your Art

To assist artists who may be interested in participating in IX Arts events/shows, here is an overview of the submission/acceptance process for IX Arts events. Since there are two parts to the IX show, there are two different submissions processes to consider.

Traditional Media Only

Main Show

Jury submissions will be accepted from November 1st, 2022 through November 30, 2022.

You must submit a headshot, bio, and six pieces to the judges. TRADITIONAL MEDIA ONLY.

The judges for the 2023 IX show are:

  • Donny Caltrider – writer, Hipsters of the Coast
  • Tatiana Dykes – owner/art representative, TDArt
  • Gary Pressman – director, CoproGallery
  • Lance Rehs – director, Rehs Gallery
  • Peter Trippi – editor, Fine Art Connoisseur
  • Brian Walters – art director, Hit Point Press

If you are selected to exhibit in the Main Show, artists spaces are $625 with a 1st floor upgrade available for additional fee. All Main Show spaces provide at least 10’ linear of hanging space, with much larger spaces available upon request.

If you have an IX artist account and profile already

Simply log in to your account at www.ixartists.com, upload any new work that you want to include and select the orange check boxes next to the six pieces you want to submit to the jury. You may change your selections at any time up until December 1st.

If you do not have an IX artist account

Go to www.ixartists.com and click the “Register” link. Choose an email and a username. Click on the confirmation email that you receive and then log in. Once you are logged in, you can edit your profile and upload pieces to your gallery. Edit your profile to include a head shot and a bio, and then upload at least six pieces to your gallery and select the orange checkboxes to make them jury selections. You may change your selections at any time up until December 1st.

If you have a piece that is NDA and cannot be shown on the website if you are selected for the show, please click “Edit” on that piece and select “Private” so that it is not shown anywhere other than the judges’ page.

Any Media Type

Evening Showcase

The IX Showcase is not juried. There is no submission or approval process – Showcase tables are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Showcase tables go on sale in mid-January, and generally, sell out quickly. After tables are sold out we will take names for our waiting list, but if you want a Showcase table the best method is to get one while they are on sale.

We will announce the date and time that tables will go on sale on the IX Arts website, our Facebook page, and via our mailing list at least two weeks in advance of the actual on-sale date. Again, if you are interested in exhibiting in the Showcase, please sign up for our mailing list. Please contact us if you are interested in a Showcase table for 2022.
