The Artist may schedule one or more reception dates during the show subject to availability. The Arts Council will coordinate with the artist for scheduling and marketing. We will facilitate public receptions at Arts Council cost and coordinate with the Artist. Chosen artists will be notified with delivery and pickup dates for artwork.
