Number of Exhibits
Each artist may enter up to four exhibits and up to two unframed art works for display in our browsers. The number is limited because of space constraints at the venue. Smaller works may be submitted as ‘sets’ where they are sold together with one sale price but the maximum number of exhibits remains unchanged. The minimum frame size is 12 x 12 cm.
Work may be submitted that is not for sale (NFS). These exhibits will be marked with a Green Dot and NFS in the catalogue.
