Exhibition Rules Update

We've made an amendment to the Exhibition entry fees this year.

Not For Sale pieces will now cost £5 for paintings measuring under 30", and £10 over that (instead of the previous flat £12 for all NFS work).

Also, we're including a guide to presentation:

    FRAMED

    o   a frame of good quality with tightly mitred joints

    o   clean glass

    o   neatly cut mount

    o   hanging cord should be of sufficient strength

    o   fastened with D-rings which are flush to the frame; not the protruding screw rings as these can damage frames stacked together

    o   self adhesive or gummed tape on the back to cover the joint between frame and backing

    o   adhesive label showing: title, price, medium, artists name on the back

    o   label hanging over the front showing: title, price, medium, artists name

    

    BOXED CANVAS

    o   picture overlapping edges otherwise painted edges

    o   hardboard or mount board covering the back

    o   hanging cord should be of sufficient strength

    o   fastened with D-rings which are flush to the frame; not the protruding screw rings as these can damage frames stacked together

    o   adhesive label showing: title, price, medium, artists name on the back

    o   label hanging over the front showing: title, price, medium, artists name

    

    BROWSER

    o   neatly cut mount

    o   backing board

    o   wrapping of cellophane (not cling film)

    o   adhesive label showing: title, price, medium, artists name on the back

    

    OTHER ART WORK

    o   display aid if necessary

    o   label showing: title, price, medium, artists name, attached
