Eligibility and number of submissions.
The exhibition is open to all artists and should be themed on the subject of nature. You do not have to be from the South or even the UK to enter but you do need to be here to drop off and collect your art work. The artist must have the right to reproduce the work of the image used. Photocopies, commercially produced prints, etchings and laser copies of work are not acceptable. Domestic or pet subjects are not eligible. All exhibits must be For Sale, the artists may enter at up to FOUR exhibits, further exhibits at the discretion of the organisers. The exhibits must be owned by the artist and cannot be entered by a third party or agent.
Purpose made box canvases are acceptable unframed, but ordinary canvases without frames are not. Box canvases must be at least 35mm depth and should not have staples or tacks down the sides, with the painting continued on the sides.
If you have any doubts about your entry or intend to submit non-traditional media, please check with the organisers first. All exhibits are subject to the organiser’s discretion. Any art work rejected before the exhibition or on the day will get a refund.
Sales and Copyright
Commission of 30%, (0% in the Artist Studio/Art Market) will be deducted from the sale price of all original work and should be included and allowed for in the sale price. Works entered but not handed in will not have the fees refunded.
Rookesbury Park nor the Organisers will be held responsible for any work exhibited by members that infringes copyright law – the artist is held responsible for the originality of their own work.
Framing and preparation of work
All pictures must be suitably framed with a cord ready for hanging (wire is not acceptable). Cord should not be visible above the top of the picture or be too tight and should be attached to ‘D’ rings. Clip frames or frames with unprotected glass edges are not acceptable, nor are mirror plates for hanging. Each painting must be clearly labeled on the back, (sculptures on the base, but not tied on), with the artist’s name, contact details, the work’s title and price. Work that is not properly secure or without hangers and/or cord, or in any way infringes the above will not be hung. All exhibits should be clean and ready to exhibit.

Stewarding / Demonstrating
This is the opportunity for you to promote your work and discuss your exhibits with potential buyers. It is a great opportunity to meet other like-minded artists, introduce potential customers to your work and make the public feel welcome when viewing our exhibition. If you can find the time over the week to help set up the exhibition, please complete the help wanted form with the times that you can assist, (we need your help and without it, we cannot run the exhibition).
We are looking for artists that would like to sit in the exhibition and demonstrate and discuss their work between 10.00am till 4.00pm for just one, two, three or for all four days, please contact us if you would like to do this.
The organisers will do their best to hang the paintings and show sculptures to their best advantage. If you have any doubts about entry requirements, please contact Jamie Sinclair on 07739012434 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
