Please remember: framed dimensions must not exceed 36″ wide X 48″ high. Anything larger than this will be rejected upon delivery. All art must be suitably framed and securely wired for hanging. Exposed glass edges or unstable frames will not be accepted. Matted works must be matted in white or off-white only. Glass must be clean. Wall-mounted sculptures which are fragile or contain breakable materials must be in a shadow-box frame and must weigh less than 40 lbs., including frame. All art falling outside of these parameters (art quilts, glass, etc) need to have everything necessary to hang when delivering work. If you have special needs, please contact Teresa Ficaretta prior to the art drop off date.

Laurel Art Guild reserves the right to refuse any artwork upon delivery that it deems to be improperly presented, unsafe, damaged, does not meet size requirements, or not the same as represented in the image submitted for judging.
