All oil paintings must be framed and all watercolors, photographs and drawings must be matted and framed. All work must be ready to be hung with wire and screw eyes - no saw tooth hangers or paper hooks. Any piece not properly wired will not be accepted. An exhibition fee of $4.00 is charged for each piece of work exhibited. Works may be offered for sale at the request of the artist.

Anyone wishing to put extra matted pieces in the sale bin may do so.
