Photography entries must be original work in traditional or digital photography and not have been shown in this exhibit previously. All photography must be framed and ready for hanging with wire (no saw tooth hangers) and protected under either glass or plexiglass with the exception of wrapped canvas. Unframed stretched canvas (fully wrapped canvas only) will be accepted if the sides are painted and no staples are visible. Canvas or other cradle substrates must be a minimum depth of 1” (no ¾” canvas or blocks will be accepted). All work submitted must have a label secured on the back (upper left hand corner) stating the name of the piece, artist name and phone number.

Three dimensional artworks are welcome except crafts, large scale installations and video projected art due to limited exhibit space and nature of exhibit. Three-dimensional work may be a minimum of 10 in. and a maximum of 4 ft. in any one direction and shall not exceed 25 lbs. in each unit. Multiple part works must have each part labeled along with a diagram for hanging or assembly on each part. Artist is responsible for providing pedestals for displaying sculptures.

Artwork which is sold from this exhibit (up to 30 days after the closing of the exhibit as a result of having been exhibited in this show) shall donate to Round Rock Arts 20% of the sales price. Artists should price their work to include any applicable sales tax and donation amount. If a work is sold during the exhibit time period, the art shall remain in the exhibit until official take down date. Customers may pick up sold pieces at that time. Artists are NOT ALLOWED to remove any art prior to take down. Early art removal may disqualify you from entering other RRA exhibits.

RRAAC carries no insurance for loss or damage to artwork in the exhibit or in transit, nor assumes liability for the same. However, every precaution will be taken for the safety of the work. Artists should provide their own coverage if desired.
