Call For Entries

This call is open July 1, 2018-October 1, 2018

The Highland Lakes Creative Arts (www.hlcarts.com) is issuing a call for entries for its annual Sculpture On Main. Application will be accepted through October 1. Each sculptor may submit up to three sculptures for consideration. Note that all our pieces are on public display in the open air and thus should be constructed of material suitable for such a display. Pieces with pointed and/or sharp edges will not be considered.

Please provide two or three photographs of each piece, showing different angles. Since these pictures may be used in advertising pieces, please make sure the photos are of a high resolution.

From the applications submitted by the deadline, the HLCA will select up to 15 pieces for the 2018-20 Sculpture On Main exhibit.  All applicants will be notified of the board’s decisions by October 5, 2018.

Sculptures will be installed by appointment in late October 2018 and remain on display through October 2020. Delivery is the artist’s responsibility; installation will be done by City of Marble Falls Parks and Recreations Department staff working with the artist.

All sculptures selected for this year’s Sculpture On Main will receive an installation/first year stipend of $500. A second year display stipend of $250 will be paid to the artist in 2019. The HLCA will actively market the pieces while they are on display in Marble Falls.

Artists will be required to sign a Sculpture On Main contract, which includes a 30 percent commission to the HLCA on any sculpture sold during the exhibit. Once installed, sculptures are covered for theft or damage by City insurance.

The 2018 Sculpture On Main Dedication Ceremonies will be Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10, 2018.
