New Project: SUBMIT/"Submission Fee No. 1"

Submission Fee No. 1
7.5 x 11.5 inches
Woodcut, three layer reduction
Edition of 4
Price: Pay what you want by September 3rd, 2019

This woodcut is the first step in a year-long conceptual art piece titled SUBMIT. From August 31, 2019-August 30, 2020 I will create a woodcut depicting the required fee, or price tag, for submission to an artist's opportunity that I would likely apply for if there were no fee. The fee must be for application only, meaning that if a submission is not accepted, the applicant receives no benefit. They have simply lost a small investment.

I will post all of the price tag woodcuts for sale on my social media accounts at least three days before the deadline for the opportunity associated with the fee. These woodcuts will be "pay what you want", and if I earn enough from a particular print to cover the cost of the submission fee by the deadline, I will submit an application.

Institution: Bauhaus Prairie Art Gallery, a host of online art show competitions
Opportunity: international call for artists in a group exhibition “The Human Figure”
Venue Location: Internet
Fee: $35 for 1-3 pieces
Deadline: September 3, 2019
