Entry forms, hanging fees and paintings may be handed in together on any Friday and Saturday during normal opening times. The last time for entries is 16.00 hrs on Saturday 22nd October.
Members exhibiting are invited to sign up for at least two periods of duty during the Exhibition. These are to be shown on the entry form. The duty roster is available in the Gallery.
If entering a NFS 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.
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. There is a reel of framing tape available in the Gallery for members’ use.
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. All staples should be at the back of the frame.
Labels for your work 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).
Gallery staff will refuse any pieces of work not meeting these requirements. Exhibits will not be insured and are hung at the owner’s risk therefore members may wish to insure their own work.
A commission fee of 25% will be taken on all painting, browser and craft sales, except that there will be no commission taken for cards and craft items for sale at less than £10.
Unsold work will be left to hang in the Gallery until mid January with no additional hanging fee. However, members will need to sign up for additional duties during this extended hanging period.
