  • If we accept your piece, it will be sized at 2550 pixels by 3300 pixels for the cover, so please be sure that your image size is close to that, or that you have a version that is the appropriate size.
  • All accepted cover artists will be placed in the Museum of Canvas by our Editor-in-Chief Lindsay Herko. These artists are asked to write, make a video, or engage in an interview that serves as an artist statement to accompany their piece in the online museum.

  • Only submit works in black-and-white/grayscale.

  • Submit no more than 4 interior art pieces a year.
  • Submit only jpegs or pngs. No PDFs or DOCs.
  • All images must be at least 300 dpi.
  • Some (but not all) accepted interior artists will also be invited to the Museum of Canvas by our Editor-in-Chief Lindsay Herko. These artists are asked to write, make a video, or engage in an interview that serves as an artist statement to accompany their piece in the online museum.
