Without our artists we would have no exhibition. We appreciate what you do and we would encourage you to exhibit with us.
We are looking for work which is skillfully created, which has something to say about you and your world and which will communicate with a purchaser.
"WHY HAS MY PAINTING BEEN REJECTED"
The answer to this often asked question is rarely is a painting not being selected on the basis of quality.
In practise we make a first selection. Then a second when we may have to decide between two very
similar paintings, but more often we simply do not have the space to hang everything submitted.
Please try not to allow your disappointment to preclude you from submitting works next year.
