Art Requirements

All work must be original and should be recent work.

All designs must be original. No copies, patterns or prints.

Pieces cannot be accepted that are too large to fit

The Visual Arts Advisory Committee reserves the right to limit the quantity of pieces exhibited, based on space available.

Artwork must be framed and look professional. Canvases with staples are not permitted when installing artwork.  Gallery wrapped canvases are acceptable.  Shrink-wrapped art is not acceptable except from students.

It is expected that all the artwork on exhibit will be for sale. Rare exceptions may be made by the Director. The Museum retains 25% commission on the sale of all artwork during the show. All sales will be handled by the Museum.

Each piece must have an attached label on the back with the artist name and contact information as well as the title of the work, medium, date, and retail price.
