  5. Limit your submittals to no more than two images.

  6. In addition to the Title, include the dimension of your frame (LxH) and price in the title. If image is not for sale, specify "NFS." This will allow us to create image labels and determine the layout of the exhibit efficiently.  

  7. Please note that there will be tables with patrons in front of your images. Select images that have HIGH IMPACT so that they will be noticed by standing patrons from afar.

ENTRIES MUST CONFORM TO THE FOLLOWING STANDARDS:

  1. Use a frame and/or frameless image that is a maximum of 16” x 20”.  Consider using Nielson frames, as we have used in previous exhibitions at the Alameda Museum.

  2. All entries must have eye hooks or similar hardware so that fishline can be used to hang the images from the Local's molding above the displays.

  3. DO NOT USE GLASS. Plexiglass only. Falling frames may shatter and injure patrons. You can get plexiglass cut to order for at Tap Plastics, 3011 Alvarado St. San Leandro, or at www.americanframe.com, among other sources.

  4. Stick a label with your name and title of image on the back to help us with identification.

  5. If you prepare an artist's bio, we will place it in a notebook available to Local patrons at the coffee house.


APS Exhibition at CALYX HEALTH

Calyx Health is excited to partner with APS to exhibit the work of local photographers. Calyx Health is a doctor’s office exclusively for Medicare seniors, located in the Alameda South Shore above Trader Joe’s. Calyx Health has taken everything you don’t like about a traditional doctor’s office and replaced it with a space designed to foster health just by walking through the door. The clinic was built from the ground up to cater to seniors’ needs, and includes a unique blend of modern finishes and nostalgic decor that pays homage to historic Alameda.

APS members are welcome to stop by to tour the space Mon-Fri, 8am-4pm, located at 2217 South Shore Center #250, Alameda--above Trader Joe’s. Visit calyxhealth.com for pictures and to learn more.
