The following guidelines apply to art work shown at an HCWS-sponsored exhibition:
-Exhibitors must be current members of HCWS. -The painting must be the original work of the artist and done without the assistance of an instructor. -No replicas or any portion of a published or copyrighted work is to be submitted. -The majority of the painting must be done with water media. -Collage is acceptable if created using water media. -Art may be framed or canvas wrapped.
-Frames should be in good condition. -The art must be ready to hang with a wire that can support the weight of the painting. -Size:
-Due to the exhibition space at our venues, we suggest submitting paintings no larger than a full sheet with a reasonable size mat and frame e.g., 40x34. For this size, we prefer acrylic plastic sheet or nothing to reduce the weight. -Smaller works of art are appreciated and these may have glass, plastic or neither.
-For art with unusual dimensions such as a long, narrow painting, or for any other questions, please consult with the exhibition chairperson. -HCWS and the venue administrator reserve the right to refuse to hang any piece of work which is not deemed to be of a suitable standard or content. -Neither HCWS, nor the venue, is responsible for art that falls off the wall or is otherwise damaged.
