EXHIBITION REQUIREMENTS

All artwork must be submitted in a state that is completed, dry, and ready for installing.

We do not recommend submitting unframed work.

Due to the hanging system in the gallery all 2D artworks must have secure D-ring hanging devices attached. Two D-rings are required; one to be affixed on either side of the frame, approximately 5 cm from the top of the artwork, or in proportion to the artwork. The D-rings should be able to bear the weight of the artwork.

Photograph clip frames, a horizontal cord, or strand of wire are not acceptable. Due to the nature of our hanging system and for safety reasons, artworks without conforming hanging mechanisms will be excluded from the exhibition.

Plinths of various sizes are used for sculpture and the way that they are displayed is at the discretion of the gallery.

 

Please contact us if you wish to provide your own plinth or if you have unusual display requirements.
