Dear OPA Exhibiting Artist,
Congratulations on your acceptance into this year’s National Exhibition of Traditional Oils to be held at the Steamboat Art Museum, June 3 – August 27, 2022. Please read the following instructions closely as it includes important information regarding the exhibition. OPA and Steamboat Art Museum look forward to receiving your painting.
Due to the longer length of the exhibition, OPA and the Steamboat Art Museum request that you DO NOT send a return shipping label at this time. The week prior to the closing of the exhibition, SAM will determine what paintings will require a return shipping label and email everyone with further instructions.
Please be sure to note the dimensions of the box you used to ship your artwork to Steamboat Art Museum, as well as the weight of the box.
All artists who have been juried into the exhibition are required to fill out the uncrating form below.
A couple of quick reminders!
•Your painting should arrive in Steamboat Springs the week of April 11 through April 15
•Do NOT include a return shipping label in your box! OPA will send further instructions re: return shipping labels towards the end of the exhibition.
•In the next week or two, you should receive shipping instructions in the mail. Please read over the information carefully and be sure to proofread the enclosed notification card.
•SAM needs your bio! Please email them a one-page biography to share with their collectors. Email: email@example.com
Finally, we would love to see you in Steamboat Springs! Check out OPA’s convention program which includes our popular Wet Paint Competition.
OPA and SAM highly recommend you obtain insurance for your artwork while in transit. The shipping industry is experiencing staff shortages resulting in longer delivery times and less care taken with shipments. One option to consider, is ShipandInsure which offers OPA members insurance and discounts on Federal Express.
