HANGING REQUIREMENT: All artwork must be ready to install WITH HANGING WIRE. The wire should be low enough to be hung without the hanging hook showing above the frame, and just loose enough for the wire to be pulled over the hook. NO SAWTOOTH HANGERS OF ANY KIND! Note: any work that requires special installation (i.e. wood or metal prints) must have gallery approval in advance. Please review the Hanging Requirements and the Wall Art Receiving Check List
ARTWORK: SFWA cannot accept responsibility for damage incurred to art that is vulnerable or fragile (i.e. unprotected photographs; prints on metal, wood or acrylic; or other specialty art.)
LIABILITY: SFWA does not insure for damage, loss, or theft of any works shown in the SFWA Gallery.
PRICING: It is important to price your artwork appropriately; prices that are too high or too low impact the credibility of our gallery and the artist.
Note: Once the Submission Deadline has passed, you will not be able to adjust artwork information such as title, medium, or price by contacting SFWA. Give yourself time to think it through, or get advice, especially on the price, before the deadline. If your normal medium is not listed, please let us know and we will add it in as a category.
*For complex or special art processes: Use the ‘Notes’ section in Smarter Entry to describe unusual or complex process, techniques, or materials used in your artwork. This aids the gallery staff in discussing and selling your work. Mixed media and encaustic artworks, for example, may benefit from more description of their process.
* IMPORTANT: Acceptance by the juror does not guarantee acceptance by the gallery. Please be sure to read the HANGING INSTRUCTIONS and the Wall Art Receiving Check List before bringing art to the gallery.
