FRAMING STANDARDS ARE THE SAME AS FOR ALL EXHIBITIONS
Paintings will not be hung unless they are properly framed and have ‘d’ rings no more than one third down from the top of the painting and are tightly corded. Screws and rings must be covered by a small amount of padding (foam or bubble wrap) secured with tape to prevent damage to other works.
The backs of framed paintings must be sealed with brown framing tape (not masking tape or parcel tape).
Unframed stretched canvas paintings are acceptable if finished neatly at the edges.
Labels for your work are available in the Studio. Please make sure your labels are clearly written in block capitals in black ink and that the details match those given on the entry form. Please tie the label to the hanging cord with a length of string long enough to drape over the top of your painting so it can be seen from the front (for initial hanging purposes ) . An example is on permanent display at the club.
Unsold work must be collected on the final day of the exhibition (Sunday 24th November between 1600 and 1700 hrs) unless prior arrangements have been made.
Please give your name to Helen Rowbotham if you are (i) unable to enter your paintings on the monday yourself or (ii) unable to collect them from the exhibition. Pictures can be delivered to the gallery and/or collected from it prior to or after the exhibition times by prior arrangement with Helen Rowbotham.
The hanging committee will refuse any pieces of work not meeting these simple requirements. Exhibits will not be insured and are hung at the owner’s risk. Members may wish to insure their own work.
This year, members submitting cards for sale must complete a card entry form with the name of the member, number of cards submitted and initials used on cards by the member.
