Annual Exhibition – Entry Requirements & Arrangements

The Exhibition will open on Friday 9th June 2023 at 10.00 hrs and close on Saturday 17th June July 2023 at 16.00 hrs. Exhibition will not be open on Sunday.



Up to 5 framed paintings per member. £2.50 hanging fee each or £10 for 5. Paintings should not have been exhibited at previous Art Club events. (Framed Prints cannot be accepted for hanging). There will be an opportunity to exhibit browser and craft items and cards. The usual rules for exhibiting craft items will apply.

Use the normal hanging entry forms.

Entry forms, hanging fees and paintings should be handed in together on any Friday and Saturday during normal opening times. The last time for entry is 16.00 hrs on Saturday 3rd June.

Members exhibiting are invited to sign up for at least two periods of duty to support the exhibition. The duty roster is available in the Gallery.

If entering a “Not for Sale” painting this must be accompanied by a for sale painting.

Members should be aware that any work copied from other artists, paintings or photographs including those taken from books etc., should acknowledge the original artist or photographer.

FRAMING STANDARDS ARE THE SAME AS FOR ALL EXHIBITIONS – See News Post dated 11 June 23 for details

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 the exhibits are available in the Gallery. 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).


A commission fee of 25% will be taken on all painting sales.

Unsold work will be left to hang in the Gallery for the 6 weeks after the Exhibition ends with no additional hanging fee payable. However, members will need to sign up for additional duties during that period.

The club will refuse any pieces of work not meeting these  requirements. Exhibits will not be insured and are hung at the owner’s risk. Members may wish to arrange insurance for their own work.
