Offered with some editor’s suggestions:

This is all they really sent us.

The Aiken Center for the Arts in Aiken, SC, is calling for artists to submit proposals for exhibitions at the Center. They didn’t offer us much details, but I would suggest getting their prospectus and check our item #10 as seen here:

10. Promotion and advertising will include an Artist Reception the first Thursday of the exhibition (6-8 PM) with
beverages provided by ACA. ACA will promote the exhibit on our website, social media outlets, community
calendars, member newsletter and by email. ACA will pay for the printing and mailing of up to 500 postcards
provided the artist provided the Artist provides the required images to the Executive Director by the contract

No deadline was given but I’m not sure they have a show scheduled for July 2018 – 2019.

Check out their website to get an idea of how they promote exhibits on their website.
