Exhibition Guidelines


• Open to OPAL members (or Artist Members for judged shows)

• All entries must be of original design, suitably framed with wire hangers (no saw-tooth hangers) and be thoroughly dry. Please frame paintings and flat works no more than one-third (1/3) from the top of the work to ensure work lays flat against the wall.

• All work must be accompanied with an hanging fee and completed exhibition entry form and dropped off during the drop-off hours. Should an artist not be able to make this deadline, it is the artist’s responsibility to make arrangements to have someone else drop off their work with their completed entry form and entry fee. Artist’s name & title of work to be attached to back of painting in addition to entry form.

• Due to the diversity of patrons who frequent the satellite offices, works will be viewed to determine appropriateness. OPAL reserves the right to refuse any exhibit or part of an exhibit at any time.

• OPAL requests a 35% commission on works sold.

• Digital invitations will be available prior to each show. Artists are expected to send these invitations out to their mailing list and clients.

• All entries must be picked up during the pick-up hours advertised for the show. Artists are to make arrangements for another to pick up their work, should they be unable to make the deadline. Any person picking up another artist’s work must be either known by the board of OPAL, have called to inform the exhibition committee of this arrangement, or have written permission presented in the form of the receipt at the back of this entry form. OPAL does not have storage facilities to store your work and will charge a $10 storage fee should they be forced to hold your work without prior arrangements. Any unclaimed work, after attempts to contact artist, after 3 months time will be disposed of.

We suggest that artists carry their own insurance. All reasonable care will be taken with original art.

By entry into these shows, the artist is agreeing that OPAL or its satellite galleries will not be held responsible for loss or damage of any works.
