  • Each work that is to be hung  should be prepared with securely fixed D-rings, or similar, and cord and labelled on the back with the name of the work, price and exhibitor’s name
  • D-rings or other fittings should not protrude from the back of the work.  They should be fitted flush with the back of the canvas, frame or painting and taped in place.

  • Clip frames are not acceptable
  • Unframed work must be backed on to stiff card, wrapped in clear cellophane and labelled on the back with the name of the work, price and the exhibitor’s name, since they are not catalogued.  Do not submit box or stretched canvases as Unframed Work as they will be rejected.
The Committee reserves the right to limit numbers and reject any work.
Please note that very large works may be rejected if space is unavailable.  Also, we are unable to hang very heavy works on our display boards.
