  • ​​The size of the piece includes any frame or hanging hardware.

  • If it’s in a frame the outside edges of the frame should be 12“ x 12“ exactly.

  • If it’s not in a frame the outside edges of the piece should be 12“ x 12“ exactly.

  • 5” deep is the maximum depth but not a required depth. The piece can be flat.

No glass please. Plexiglass or other nonbreakable materials are fine if work is framed.

What hanging hardware is required? All pieces must be ready to hang. That can be a gallery wire or sawtooth hanger. "Ready to hang" means each piece should sit flush to the wall and not require adjustments by the show crew beyond placing the piece on a nail.

​​What does "local" mean? If you want to get specific, we are emphasizing artists in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties at this time. You must drop off and pick up your work yourself. And hopefully attend the party!

All pieces should be dry
