Artworks can be offered for sale. Art Est. will retain a 25% commission of the sale price.

Maximum number of works: Due to our large number of students, we have had to cap the number of artworks each person can exhibit. There is now a maximum of 2 artworks per person. If you have done multiple classes or workshops, please only enter your 2 best works.

Maximum size: Due to space restrictions and the volume of work received, we request work be no larger than 100cm in any one direction. In the case of an exhibitor entering multiple large works we may not be able to display all of that entrant’s submitted work.

ALL artworks must have your full name, the artwork title, the price (or NFS), the name of your tutor and your contact number written legibly on the back (preferably in the bottom left hand corner).

ALL artworks must be accompanied by a completed entry form (adult entries only).

Please read the following about framing and presentation. Your class tutor will be able to assist you with getting your artwork ready to present.

1. Works on stretched canvas: These do not need to be framed. However, you should securely attach picture hanging string to the back of your stretched canvas. Heavy stretched canvas paintings may require d-rings. You will need to attach these. We can advise where to purchase and how to attach d-rings and picture hanging string. Don’t use eye-hooks or wire.

2. Works on flat canvas board: When you deliver your work, please must supply 4 × 3M Command picture hanging strips for paintings on canvas board. Do not attach them but please mark your name on the packet.

3. Framed artworks on paper: Please ensure your frame has 2 x d-rings securely attached to the back AND/OR picture hanging string is securely attached. We are UNABLE to accept ALUMINIUM FRAMES without d-rings. Don’t use eye-hooks or wire. If you are unsure, please ask!

4. Unframed works on paper or on canvas paper: These will be pinned to the wall if space allows.

For works on paper, The Art Scene at West Ryde (9807 6900) has affordable stock frames in various sizes to put your work in and replace with new work as you like. Ask us for details.
