WEEK 2

​​Our goal this week is to ​complete details for the exhibit art cards .

[extended] DEADLINE: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15TH AT 11:59PM


An electronic database was issued to you via email last Monday (02.04)
Please complete the fields highlighted in YELLOW.  Once you've entered your information, the  color format will disappear automatically.
YELLOW fields = Required info.

All N/A fields will be blank on the art card.

Gallery guidelines require all art work to be priced. Any work that does not include a sale number cannot be displayed.



There are six columns that require information. (email, artist name, title, size, medium, and price)
Social media pages and/or a website can also be included on the art card but it is not mandatory. (last three columns, right side)

Equally importantly, please make sure all current details are reviewed and confirmed.

 
ART WORK PREP:
All 2D art work MUST be wired (no sawtooth hangers) close to the top of the frames.  All works must be framed or suitably presented. 
Hanging works may not exceed 15 lbs. 

3D Artists will be required to drop off and install art work personally with the assistance of the gallery staff. 

> Framing Tip: There are several of you that will be displaying  delicate, petite works (in stature, not detail nor spirit)
Please consider that when you show your work in a simple black frame it sometimes creates a simple reaction. 
Make sure the frame commands and matches your art's true potential. 
If you need assistance locating economically priced presentation pieces please inquire with your local thrift shops, vintage retail stores, or  ask friends for assistance before blowing your budget.
