All paintings frames must be fitted with ‘D’ rings (to minimise damage to other paintings when stacked) They must be positioned 1/3rd down from the top edge and strung for hanging. Unframed canvases and box canvases will be accepted provided they are strung for hanging in the same way. Paintings not so strung and clip frames will not be accepted.
We regret that miniatures (less than 12cm square) cannot be accepted as we do not have display space. We have requested that you advise the metric size of each of your entries to help us to prepare for the hanging process.
Sculpture & Plinths
All sculpture over 10cm high (8 inches) must be provided with a plinth or stand. Smaller items will be displayed in a glass cabinet. It is the responsibility of the sculptor to ensure that the item is securely and safely anchored to plinths. Whilst we cannot display pieces outside we may be able to display one or two large pieces indoors. Please advise if your entry is freestanding or larger than 60cm ( 2 ft) high. It will be assumed that plinths are not for sale unless indicated otherwise.
Please indicate on the Application Form if ‘Unique’ or an edition (e.g. 2 of 20)
Artists Greetings Cards
Exhibiting Artists may display artists greetings cards for sale, which depict your work. We have space for 25 artists and therefore have to restrict the number of styles to four (one size for each) & the ten cards must be supplied of each style. There cannot be offers for multiple cards (i.e. five for the price of four). ALL cards must have your name & the price in multiples of 50p marked on the back. Cards incorrectly marked will not be accepted. Applications to display will be dealt with on a first come first accepted basis. There is a 10% commission charge on all card sales.
Exhibit Delivery (Handing In)
Entries (and Artists Cards if applicable) must be delivered to the venue on the Handing In day at the times shown on the Exhibition Timetable.
It is the Hanging Teams decision as to where any work should be hung in order to enhance the public’s visual appreciation.
Artists may indicate that they can undertake commissions and this will be shown in the catalogue.
Insurance for the exhibits submitted must be provided by the artist. Neither Lingfield Art Association, nor the venue, will be responsible for damage or loss to any exhibit. Stewards and other volunteers helping with the event will be insured by Lingfield Art Association.
Stewarding Priority for Entry
The exhibition cannot run without stewards. We will give priority to applicants who offer to steward for at least one two hour period during the week. Please spend more time if you can. Stewarding helps to keep the exhibits safe and the public like to meet the artists who exhibit.
If you are able to exhibit, submit the Application Form and are accepted, we will send you an invitation to the Private View for you and your guest.
Where artists wish to donate the proceeds of any sale to their chosen charity, this should be done privately. They should complete the Application Form in the normal way under their own name and submit their application within these Terms & Conditions of Entry.
No photography is permitted at the exhibition but the Exhibition Team reserve the right to take photographs to publicise future Exhibitions.
Lingfield Art Association take the safeguarding of contact information provided by exhibitors very seriously. We comply with the new Data Protection Legislation and our data protection policy can be viewed on the website.
Exhibit Collection (Handing Back)
Exhibits may not be removed during the exhibition without the agreement of the Exhibition Team. All work not sold must be collected on the last day of the Exhibition shown on the Timetable. Lingfield Art Association will not be responsible for any work left at the venue after that time.
