Works accepted must be for sale. Works sold from the show will be replaced with a work from the Waitlist. Please review FALC Display Guidelines attached to the bottom of this document. 

Guidelines have changed:

Size: The Mayton has fully installed the hanging system, so this allows for smaller works. The maximum size remains at 54” on any one length. The minimum size is now 5x7 (or 35 square inches) without frame.

Framing: In addition to the traditional frame or gallery wrapping, alternative professional presentation options will be considered. These may include float framing, rod & wire or mounted on stretchers. However, for art using non-traditional framing, we will require an additional photo showing presentation when the work is submitted, allowing the submission committee to fully consider the work. 

Acceptance Fee: A nominal charge of $15 for accepted work will be required. This will not only cover printing costs but provide the opportunity to further encourage foot traffic to the exhibit through marketing and maybe even a nice social for this exhibit.

Please Read carefully all the way to the end of the guidelines to ensure your work complies. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in refusal to hang your art even if the art itself has been accepted. 

Eligibility: 

All members of FALC are eligible to submit three pieces of 2D artwork in any medium.

Canvases must be framed or gallery wrapped 1.5” deep, edges deep and painted - integral to the composition preferred but solid painted allowed. 

Work must be your original concept, using your own or copyright free reference.

Minimum size: 5x7 (or 35 square inches) canvas size

Maximum size:  no side larger than 54” including frame.

Not eligible:

Art reproductions - giclees, art prints, etc - not eligible.

workshops and art classes are not considered original artwork. - not eligible.

FALC Display Guidelines:

All work must be totally dry and ready to hang. 

Ready to hang means the following:

Dates and times

  • Respect the delivery and pick up dates and times.  Non-compliance may mean refusal of entry from the current show and the next show. FALC Volunteers are volunteering their time. Please be respectful.  

Labeling

  • Work delivered must be physically labelled on the back with a tag, business card or handwritten label on the frame with the Artist’s name and contact information. This is to help us get your work to you if needed.  

Hanging wire:

  • Use heavy gauge wire. 
  • No sawtooth hangers. 
  • Screw eyes large enough to support the weight of the piece. 
  • Please tape the raw ends of the wire to prevent injury

Framing/matting 

  • Work on paper must be matted and framed. Large works (over 22 inches x 30 inches or 66 square inches total) should be framed using plastic, not glass, because of the weight.
  • Work on canvas may be unframed if the edges are painted as an integral part of the work. For The Mayton gallery wrapped canvas must be at 1.5” deep or more. 

Appropriateness of subject

  • FALC displays art in various facilities. Town of Cary facilities require work appropriate for a family setting. Not all FALC venues are TOC facilities, but if it is at the Page Walker, Cary Art Center, The Senior Center or other TOC facility, please be aware FALC must follow TOC guidelines. Look at the specific Show Description for these details. 

Liability: 

  • All entries will be handled with the best care possible, but FALC, its members, and the hosting facility shall not be responsible for loss or damage of any cause. By entering any FALC exhibition or venue the entering member agrees to abide by these rules.

FALC requirements

  • FALC requires a 25% (of the selling price) donation on works sold from these venues.
  • FALC has the right to refuse work deemed inappropriate or presenting unmanageable display problems.
  • FALC reserves the right to change these rules at any time.
