Those have not yet dropped of their work but have paid their fees and applied must arrange drop of of their work prior to the 11th of August. Labels for the works are being created as we speak so it is important that we have the ‘title of work, medium, and price’ as soon as possible.

To drop your work off please make arrangements with our Exhibitions Officer, Naomi Woodlands – southernprintmakers@gmail.com to deliver to her home.

On the opening night Naomi Woodlands will be our Mistress of Ceremonies, Julianne Smart and Stephanie McCready will be our Sales Team and Ian Scott will be our barman for the event.

Please note that there will be an option to display unframed prints for sale on the opening night only.

If you intend to use this facility please ensure all prints are mounted with a backing board and covered with clear cellophane. Your work should be clearly labelled with:

Artist Name
Title of Work
Media
Price

You can download a label below if you wish.                                                           Unframed works labels

The finished mounted work should be no smaller that A3 (42 x 30cm) and no larger than (40.7 x 51.0 cm). Smaller works can walk out the door to easily and larger pieces may not fit in the display frame.

Mounting advice: 

Option one

  • A 32 x 40 inch piece of foam core (from Eckersley’s for ~$4)

  • Cut  into 4 pieces of equal size. Each piece therefore has a dimension of 16 x 20 inches. This is equivalent to  ~40.7 x 51.0 cm, give or take a  few millimetres!

  • Use large transparent photo corners to attach the prints to the foam core

  • Wrap each mounted print with a clear cellophane-type film, neatly taped at the back.

    Purchased from Eckersley’s by the metre.

     

Option two

  • mount your print behind matt board (with a window) and secure a backing of either foam core or matt board behind it to match the size.

  • Wrap each mounted print with a clear cellophane-type film, neatly taped at the back.

    finally

  • Attach label to cellophane securely with either sticky tape or double sided tape

No commission will be charged on sales.
