What can be exhibited?

We can accept artwork in a number of guises. It can be framed or unframed. Can be on flat or box canvases. Can be three dimensional. Can be large – (over 900mm x 600mm – 3ft x 2ft). Can be three-dimensional. Can be folios (unhung work wrapped in cellophane) and can be cards.

The medium can be acrylics, watercolour, oils, mixed media. The work can be a painting or a drawing.

We do accept a limited number of ‘Not for Sale’ items but bearing in mind this is a fund raising activity for the Society this is severely limited.

In addition to all of that, we have a competition for the best picture for which this’s theme is ‘Memory’. This must be executed on our standard sized box canvasses and identified as such on the submission form (add an asterisk to the title) but can be in any media.

How to participate?

There will be a form for submitting artwork (The Registration and Payment form) which will be available via an email or in paper at the Demo in the run up to the Exhibition (at the moment it is work in progress!). This is to be completed and sent to the organisers, along with the appropriate payment by Monday 22nd July.

The works are brought along to Handing in Day, Friday 9th August, along with a completed Handing in Form, which should mirror the registration form mentioned above. Each item needs to be identified by a label attached to the reverse of the work stating the Artists name, the title of the work, medium and price.

In addition to the form Members need to complete a yellow label card for each entry – See below. This is the labels that the viewing public see alongside a completed example.

It is in the interest of all exhibitors to offer well displayed and hung pieces. See the page on ‘How to hang a picture with D rings’.
