2020 CALL TO ARTISTS

Jackalope Acres is accepting submissions from artists for consignment in their ecommerce store. Jackalope Acres is updating and heavily marketing their site for 2021. Among other updates we will be unveiling a web based gallery of goods directed at mustang and other horse owners. 

Artists whos submissions are chosen will have a prototype displayed in our web store. Customers will be able to order the product online. Jackalope Acres will manage this online 'gallery', accept payments, and direct orders to the artists consigned on their site for order fulfillment. Goods will be consigned for 30% of retail before tax and shipping. Sales receipts will be reconciled with artists monthly. 

The Art

Products for resale will not be accepted. Special emphasis will be given to products that are customizable and focused on mustang owners (such as customizable children's books or products that customers can have made with their mustangs brand on them). All media is being accepted but submissions must be shippable worldwide. A few examples of the sort of products being accepted in the call include:

  • photography of mustangs on the range

  • photography services of mustangs

  • tack, of all kinds, that can be customized with a mustangs brand or tag #

  • portraits of customers' horses (could be any media from oil, watercolor, pencil, pastel, to computer graphics, etc.)

  • hand carved/ wood burned stirrups customizable with mustang brands

The call to art is very open ended. All concepts for products that are mustang/ horse themed and Santa- Fe styled are being accepted. Goods must be replicable. One prototype will be photographed and listed. Products sent for order fulfillment must closely represent the prototype listed in the web gallery.
