If I am selected for the exhibition do I need to frame or stretch my artwork?


If you are selected, your work must be framed or stretched. You are responsible for the cost of this if the work arrives to the gallery unframed/unstretched.

Framed work must be framed in a similar manner – the frames do not have to be identical but they must be very similar – keep in mind that works are usually displayed one next to the other and using different types of frames will distract the viewers. It is your responsibility to make sure that your artwork is adequately wired and ready to hang.

Do you arrange the customs entrance of the work being shipped?


No, if you are selected for the solo show you will have to arrange customs clearance. Most shipping companies can take care of this for you.

All selected artists are responsible for all arrangements and costs connected to shipping to and from the gallery and for insuring the artwork while it is in transit.
