ARTIST SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Old Spanish Trail Gallery and Museum

Fort Davis, Texas

Old Spanish Trail Gallery and Museum works closely with our gallery artists to create a quality fine art experience. The Davis Mts gallery is a place where collectors and artists come together over truly fine art in a lovely place and relaxed setting. Our clients come from all over the world; whether tourists or residents of the region, they are folks who enjoy the beauty and serenity of Big Bend country.

 

Guidelines for Old Spanish Trail Gallery Art

 

  • Representational art predominates the Davis Mts gallery.

  • We feature southwest art.

  • OSTG artists' subjects, styles and mediums are eclectic.

  • Landscapes predominate the gallery-- we are, after all, surrounded by some of the most scenic landscapes in Far West Texas.

  • Landscape paintings are not necessarily regional scenes.

  • The Ft Davis gallery hangs cowboy art, but is NOT a western art gallery

  •  OSTG hangs still lifesabstracts, figurative art, nature artwildlife art

  • Old Spanish Trail Gallery artists are not all local artists. The Davis Mts gallery hangs artists from anywhere. It's the work that matters.

  • The Davis Mts gallery represents original wall art.   Gallery artists may also offer a few giclees, remarques and fine art cards, but our focus is on original art.

  • OSTG displays high end three dimensional art including pottery, glass art, sculpture, fiber art.

  •  No minimalist art -- Marfa does that.

  • No "statement art" other than something that says "beauty". 

  • Photography is not represented. Special exhibits may be considered.

  • Jewelry is not represented. Special exhibits may be considered.

 

We hang art for many tastes and budgets.  Study our current collection carefully before you approach us with your own art. It may be magnificent, but we value variety as much as quality.

 

The artists we represent have been vetted not only for their talent, but also for their professionalism and integrity. All art must be attractively framed or presented and wired for hanging,  Upon acceptance to the gallery, artists must provide a list of work to be shown including title, medium, size and price, plus a "story", a few lines about the work itself.  Artists must also provide us with digital images of all work to be shown in the gallery and online. We'll take it from there!

Old Spanish Trail Gallery is not currently seeking new wall artists. That said, if you believe you and your artwork would be a good fit, please carefully follow our submission guidelines listed below.  Our panel of jurors meets annually to review potential featured gallery artists to hang work year around. 

Old Spanish Trail Gallery and Museum hosts guest artists as space permits. When considering guest artists, we look not only at quality but at the variety and interest the artwork would bring to the gallery in subject, style and/or medium.  A written submission (below) is required.

Please DO NOT call, text or show up with your portfolio. We might love your work, but we can't give you fair consideration unless you follow our guidelines.

 

We will be delighted to contact you should your art claim space in a future exhibit.
