PRESENTATION AND FRAMING

Please read the following carefully. Your class tutor will be able to assist you with getting your artwork ready to exhibit.

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 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: These must be framed to a professional standard. No dodgy frames! 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!

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.
