Deadlines

  1. We need to receive your completed Reservation Form, signed Release Form, and full payment in advance to reserve space in the Art Show. Space cannot be reserved by phone.

Formatting

It is highly recommended that, if you intend to enter small fragile artwork such as delicate jewelry or miniatures, you provide a sturdy, secure display case for your pieces.

Information

  1. It is recommended that fine art prints displayed in the Art Show (such as, but not limited to, engravings, etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, monoprints or serigraphs) have the following information attached: name of artist; year printed; nature of edition (such as artist’s proof, limited, remarqued, etc.); number of impressions (both signed and unsigned, numbered and unnumbered); and the status of the plate (still in use/destroyed).
  2. All artwork (where feasible) must be labeled with title, price and artist’s name and address. Titles and prices must match the information on the control sheets. This is to prevent confusion if the info sheet becomes separated from the artwork (a common occurrence) and for the purchaser’s information.
  1. Be sure to indicate on the Reservation Form whether you or your agent will be bringing the artwork, who will be picking it up and who should receive the check for your sales.
