How can I ship to a P.O. Box?

Mail can be sent by the U.S.P.S. within the U.S., and international mail can usually be sent by a national or governmental post or letter service. Ask your local post or mail facility if you are unsure. Parcel services typically do not deliver to P.O. boxes. Usually the items that you would need to mail are in envelopes. Submissions, entries, and related documents are expected to be sent to our P.O. Box. If you need another way to arrange delivery of something, please contact the Whistle Stop Gallery for arrangements.

I sent something and it was returned! What should I do?

Please check the address carefully. If it appears to be correct, please contact us. Hint: to help prevent mistakes in addresses, feel free to cut the mailing address out of any document and attach it, if your mail or post service allows.

How should I send return postage?

The Whistle Stop Gallery pays to return all the items we say we will. You can of course choose not to have any material returned.


Is there an age limit?

If there is one, it will be on the submission documents. Generally, the Whistle Stop Gallery requires you to be of the age of majority. In short, it means that you don't need a parent or guardian to sign documents and agree to terms for you. In the U.S.A. it's usually between age 18 and 21, depending on your home state.

Is there a size limit for artwork?

If there is one, it will be on the submission documents.

What kind of artwork do you accept?

We don't accept moving images or video files for the web shows.

My artwork was rejected because of its content. What do I do?

The Whistle Stop Gallery decisions are final in this matter. You should not have this problem. We will tell you why the work has been rejected. Please don't send nude or suggestive art (meaning almost nude, or suggestive of a lewd act). We may reject excessively violent works as well.

Why do you reject works because of content?

There are several reasons. One is that Joseph A. Langley personally believes nudes are overdone in the art world, and he hates to see work accepted simply because it is nude. Another is that there is no way to control access to the content. It is not the Whistle Stop Gallery's place to decide if the piece is art, but neither can we be responsible for minors seeing content they shouldn't. Since the Whistle Stop Gallery promotes art for everyone, we feel it is better to avoid the problems by not displaying this type of content.

Why can't I submit online?

We would like to do so, but we have several reasons why we can't right now.


There are no services on the site yet.


I'd like to buy something. How do I do that?

Anything the Whistle Stop Gallery is selling will be very clearly labeled. You can certainly contact the artist, if you would like to purchase their work.

How do I negotiate a price?

The Whistle Stop Gallery does not negotiate prices. We also encourage artists not to do that. In any case, we are not involved in sales direct from the artist.

Why is art so widely priced?

Artists, galleries, and others choose prices for many different reasons. There is no one price guide for art – it's impossible to do that.


I submitted something, and paid a fee. Can I decide I didn't want to, and get my fees back?

No. We still have to handle the materials. You may withdraw your work, but we would encourage you not to do so, if at all possible.

If my work is rejected due to content, can I get my fees back?

No. We are not excessively harsh in rejecting due to content. It still costs us money to handle your submission.

Can I reduce my fees by not asking for materials to be returned?

No. The fees are set to handle multiple costs. Our costs are significantly lower than most exhibition spaces.

How can I pay for something?

U.S. Checks, Money Orders, and payments via Paypal are possible payment methods. Not all payment methods will be available for all Whistle Stop Gallery activities.

I live outside the United States. Can I pay by personal check?

No. We cannot accept international checks. You can still pay by money order.

Can I pay by credit card?

You can pay via Paypal when it is offered on this site and by invoice.

Can I pay in cash?

Do not mail cash under any circumstances. In the future, there may be opportunities to pay in person, but not yet.
