Please get in touch if your pieces are outside of this limit, and we will consider on a case by case basis whether it is suitable for the exhibition.

Important information for artists

Hanging system

We will be hanging directly onto the walls of the beautiful Rookesbury Park - we require all artworks that will be hung to have D-Rings and picture hanging cord on the back of the work. This prevents any damage to the walls and to other artworks if stacked or rested against one-another.  If you turn up without having done this, a £5 charge will be required for a member to attach D-Rings for you. 

Labelling

Any piece of work submitted must have a label attached to the back of the work with your name, name of the work, and price. When handing in, we will have an exhibition display label attached to the work however if this were to be lost it is important that we can still identify your work.  

Packaging your work

If you come with your work packaged up for the transportation, you will have to take it away with you, and bring it back upon collection. In Rookesbury there is little storage for us to keep it for the duration of the exhibition. 

Handing in/out system

Members of the committee will be running the hand in/out sessions. Each artist will have a sheet with their artwork details on, their artwork exhibition labels, and details of any purchases if their artwork sells - the artworks will be signed in and out of the exhibition. When you arrive to drop off and collect, there will be tables to unwrap/wrap any artworks. 

Here is a downloadable PDF with more in depth information about artwork requirements and artwork hand in/collection.
