HANGING FEE FOR PAINTINGS is £1 per item.
ALL MEMBERS ENTERING WORK IN THE EXHIBITION MUST DO A MINIMUM OF 2 DUTIES AND THESE MUST BE DETAILED ON THE ENTRY FORMS WHEN PRESENTING THEM FOR PAYMENT OF HANGING FEES.
FRAMING STANDARDS are the same as for all exhibitions:
Adequate and secure rings no more than one third down from the top of the frame and tightly wired or corded.
Screws and rings must be covered by a small amount of padding (foam or bubble wrap) secured with masking tape to prevent damage to other works.
The backs of work must be sealed with brown gummed tape or framing tape (as sold by the SAA and available in the sales drawer). MASKING TAPE OR PARCEL TAPE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.
A brown luggage label written in capitals in black ink must be attached to the hanging cord. It should have details of the painting identical to the entry form, with string long enough to hang over the top of the frame. This is to assist the Hanging Committee when hanging members’ work.
A sample of the standard required for framing paintings is available at the Club (example pictured) and no paintings will be accepted if they do not meet this standard.
Members should be aware of copyright law and any works copied from other artists’ paintings or photographs, including those taken from books, should acknowledge the original artist or photographer on the entry form.
Exhibits will not be insured and are hung at the owner’s risk. Members may wish to insure their own work.
THE HANGING COMMITTEE WILL REFUSE ANY PIECES OF WORK NOT MEETING THESE REQUIREMENTS.
COMMISSION: 20% ON PAINTINGS AND 10% ON BROWSER ITEMS AND CRAFTS.
Thank you very much for your cooperation with the above.
