  • Each work that is to be hung  must be prepared with securely fixed eyelets and cord and labelled on the back with the name of the work, price and exhibitor’s name
  • D-rings and other fixings should not protrude from the back of the work.  They should be flush with the back of the canvas 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.
