2021 - Hanging Guidelines


  • Work must be framed and wired for hanging. No frames w/o wire attached, no alligator clips. Work improperly framed or wired, or otherwise not displayable may be declined. There will be a $20 fee if we must re-wire your work.

  • All visible portions of the work must be in a finished condition.

  • Work on canvas must either be in a finished frame or the edge must be finished with at least paint. This includes all art — wall hung, free standing, etc.

  • Frames must be constructed in a solid fashion. The hanging wire must attach at multiple points preferably on each side at back of work. Stranded wire is preferred, drawn tight strung so it adapts with our hanging system.

  • Triptych and multi-section art work must come with succinct directions for hanging. These works should be test hung by you to work out any kinks that might prevail with its hanging.

  • Sculpture or mixed media must also be ready to hang or to exhibit safely. You may provide a stand suitable for your work.
    If you provide a pedestal and or frame for your piece, the pedestal/frame is considered part of the work and will be included in the judging of the piece. You may sell your pedestal with the work if this is clearly marked in your entry form. Sculpture may also be submitted without pedestals. We will provide pedestals. If presentation of your work is unusual and/or difficult, we may request that you come in to assist us.

  • Work may not exceed 48" high x 72" wide.
    Multi-dimensional entries should have an L+W+D of less than 130" (e.g. 36x36x58 or 24x16x90)
