IMPORTANT if you are using frames

2010-10-25 — posted by at 23:58

If you are using frames for your exhibition pieces, whether they’re the pic ones or your own, please ensure that you have hangers on the back of the work with strong string or wire attached that will hold the weight of the work. Please also make sure it is the correct orientation ie, landscape or portrait to suit your work.

Pieces for the exhibition must be ‘ready to hang’ if they’re not being pinned. If the work isn’t ready to hang the gallery curators may choose to leave your work out of the exhibition.

Don’t forget to label the back of your work and also put a label in the box outside the store.
