The hanging wire and supporting hardware MUST be able to more than adequately support the weight of the framed artwork
Very heavy artwork is difficult to hang in the festival exhibition space – please be conscious of the total weight of the work when entering

All works must be easily moved by one person
If your work exceeds the 48″ limit for all artwork, please call our office for possible consideration

Works “juried out” by the juror may or may not be exhibited this year — whereas in the past we have included all works juried out in our More Art Room, we are limited this year in the space available for art exhibition due to changes in room use by outside renters at the Shoreline Center.  Entrants who have a work juried out will receive an email on June 22
