Artwork Guidelines

General Specifications:
All artwork must be for sale and available for the entire duration of the show. All work must be the original work of the submitting artist. Work cannot have previously been displayed in McCord Gallery.

2D Specifications:
Fine art reproductions or giclee prints are not accepted. All work must be properly framed using wire hangers. (Saw tooth hangers are not permitted.)
2D work should be no larger than 35″x 40″ framed and weigh no more than 25 lbs.

3D Specifications:
We have a very limited number of pedestals. Exhibitions cannot be based solely on 3D work.
3D work should be no larger than H 5’x W16″x D16″.

McCord is leaving the media specifications up to you. We are mainly concerned with space and weight.
