Submission Information



Discrete Sales

The Unitarian Universalist Church of Spartanburg (UUCS) will provide display and exposure opportunities for artists 9th grade through adults to share their works and offer a discrete means for selling their creations.

Participation: All artists 9th grade through adults are invited to submit artwork along particular themes. Multiple entries are permitted, but each submission must be registered separately. Exhibited art may be sold through private transactions between the artist and buyer. No commission will be charged and there is no charge to participate.

Eligible Submissions: All submissions should exemplify the UUCS selected themes. We realize that art is in the eye of the beholder and that interpretations of a theme may be quite broad. Accepted mediums include drawing, painting, digital art, and photography. All artwork submitted must be owned and/or created by the submitter.

Each submission must contain the following:

  • One high quality digital image of the artwork, 300 dpi suitable for enlargement up to height: 42″ – 48″ & width: 36″ to 42″ (about 11 MB) in .jpeg or .png format.
  • A completed registration form
  • A maximum 500 character description of the artwork, in a text file in English
  • A short biography of the artist

Multiple submissions are welcomed, but each submission must be registered separately. The UUCS Sanctuary Art Committee will select the art for each exhibit. Artwork will be exhibited for six weeks in our sanctuary. Our Sanctuary Art Committee will also consider a solo artist exhibit on themes related to our Unitarian Universalist Seven Principles.
