  1. Art work must be created within the last 3 years [unless otherwise noted] and cannot be previously shown here. You will be ineligible for awards if your work appears in our records or photo gallery.
  2. For best presentation: clean and touch up before delivery.
  3. There are few size restrictions & installations are welcome- HOWEVER any piece that requires hanging from the ceiling or is over 8′ must be confirmed in advance. 
  4. 2D : To avoid marring the back of your work, please HAND INSTALL eyehooks or fasteners on each side. Factory made hangers, especially Sawtooth’s, do not hang straight. Avoid the 1/3 rule as these pieces fall forward, swing and are difficult to stabilize requiring staples or tape application during hangingApply or adjust hangers 3″or 4″ from the top.
  5. 3D work should be 50lbs or under, unless you are available on the hanging date and sit solidly on a flat surface for normal display. Ceiling hanging, heavier or unwieldy pieces may require your help to install. We cannot place the piece during drop off. 
  6. Work must remain for the duration of the show.
