DUNFERMLINE ART CLUB – WINTER EXHIBITION
THE GALLERY, KINGSGATE SHOPPING CENTRE
Set up the Exhibition on Tuesday 14th November 2023. The Exhibition will open on Friday 17th November 2023 at 10.00 hrs and close on Saturday 25th November 2023 at 16.00 hrs.
Up to 5 framed paintings per member. £2.50 hanging fee each or £10 for 5. (Framed Prints cannot be acceptedfor hanging). There will be an opportunity to exhibit browser, unframed prints and craft items and cards. The usual rules for exhibiting craft items will apply. If entering a n.f.s. painting this must be accompanied by a for sale painting. If members wish to enter work they have copied from other artists, including paintings
or photographs taken from books etc., they must first consider that they may be in breach of copyright law. If they choose to enter such work, they should acknowledge the original artist or photographer so that any purchaser will be aware the work is a copy and get permission from the originator if possible.
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 11th November. The preferred payment is by cash, bank transfer or by cheque as the Club is charged for Sumup transactions. Members exhibiting are invited to sign up for at least two periods of duty during the Exhibition. The duty roster is available in the Gallery.
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 with no staples showing. 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 i.e. artist, medium, title and price. 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 8 weeks after the Exhibition ends with no additional hanging fee. However, members should sign up for 8 hours additional duties during that period. 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.
