    ARTWORK FORMAT, PRESENTATION & SIZE REQUIREMENTS

    Artwork submissions are limited to five (5) original artworks per artist in the following media: drawing, photographs and digital art, mixed media and painting and sculpture. All works on paper must be matted, framed and covered with glass or Plexiglas. Frames must be in good condition.

    Entries must be dry, properly prepared for exhibition and properly equipped with wire for hanging. The wire and eye screws must not show when the artwork is hung. Gallery wrapped canvas does not require framing unless the edges are unfinished. Maximum weight for any artwork is 10 lbs. per foot of lineal width. Damaged artwork, mats, frames, glass and Plexiglas, and frames which have brackets will not be accepted.

    If your work has special details that your primary (overall) image cannot properly display, you may enter the work as a 3D work instead. Then you can include 1 or 2 supplemental images of details to show these special qualities. The other information about size and medium will clearly indicate it is really a 2D work, so there will not be any ambiguity about what it actually is."

    Artwork which involves motion is difficult to show properly on OJS so brief video clips of said artwork can be sent via email to Marian at: marian@fortunatifineart.com
