C. If you are accepted in the exhibition – notification and labeling

If your work has been accepted for the exhibition, you will be notified by email on March 23. Thus, it is important that you submit the correct
email address.
• You will then be required to pick up an Exhibit Label from Karen Maddox in FA69 sometime between
March 24 and March 31. This label will contain the information about your artwork.
• You will then need to sign the label and have the appropriate professor sign the label, to certify that the
work was done in his/her class.
• Attach the label to the back of the work or to the base of a 3-D work BEFORE you deliver the work to the Jones Gallery. The Jones Gallery will not supply tape or staples for you.
• If you cannot contact your professor, contact Art Department Chair David Koeth – mrkoeth@gmail.com.
D. Presentation
All work must be ready to hang. Anything that is not professionally presented will not be hung.
• Paintings must be wired. Ill-framed works, loose frames, wet paintings, frames missing straps,
screw eyes, or wires will not be hung.
• Drawings must be framed behind glass or plexiglass, and ready to hang. Drawings using lightweight
poster framing materials will not be hung in the gallery.
• 3D or sculptural work must be able to stand independently.
• Once an artwork is accepted, the piece brought to the gallery must be the same piece presented on the blog. No substitutions are allowed.
