What are the size restrictions and how should I prepare for the show?

2D Work must be no bigger than 6x6 or 5x7 per piece at the MAXIMUM INCLUDING FRAMING. Think Small! All work needs to be submitted ready to hang, with hanging materials. Most work is not framed. The style of hanging is encouraged to be with painters tape, magnets, or thumbtacks on the edges. Please refer to photos of past exhibitions. If work is framed or mounted the frame and/ or mount must not exceed our size restrictions [i.e. if each piece is framed, the frame may not exceed 5"x7" or 6"x6". If all pieces are mounted onto one display piece, the entire display piece cannot exceed 30" x 36" size restrictions.] Hanging preferences should be included with submission (or discussed with the Fun-A-Day organizers, if there are questions). Please note that due to space limitations we do our best to display as asked, but may not be able to accommodate preferences. 3D work should be small and fit on a 3'x3' table. - please contact the Fun-A-Day organizers to work out how it will be displayed.

Digital media and written works ARE welcome and encouraged! For digital artists we have electric outlets to hook into and can display your work digitally via projector or TV monitor. For written works such as poems or passages, you can print them and mounted together for display. Want to read your works aloud for attendees? Reach out to us, we can possibly setup a space for you to do a live reading.

SELLING YOUR WORK:

• You may sell your artwork for one night only during the Opening Reception from 4-8pm.

• If you want to sell your work you must hang your own work and put a small price label by each piece.

You handle your own money and sales. Sold pieces must be marked with a small circular sticker.

• The buyer can NOT take the art until after the show has been taken down on March 18th. Art work must remain at the Center for the Creative Arts for the entire show.

• YOU are responsible for handing off the sold artwork to your buyers. We will not relinquish any artwork to anyone other than the person(s) specified on this pick up form.
