Clip frames, sawtooth hangers, and easel-backed frames, will NOT be accepted.

2) Two-dimensional works, which are under glass or Plexiglas, must be enclosed in stable frames with wire of sufficient gauge to support the weight of the work.

3) Submissions with special display needs must include a photo or simple diagram showing installation positions and spacing.

4) Artists are to fill out labels for each piece accepted into the show and to attach the labels to the work. Label should include name, title, price, phone # and address.
