Artwork Check-in

Artists bring selected art to the ART on MAIN Gallery, 38 Main Street, West Stockbridge, MA. Each work must have a label attached to the back with artist name or code, title of piece, and price. 3-D art must have a sticker with artist code and price on the bottom or back of the work. (Code example: Winslow Homer (HOMW#). Be sure to use your code – important if your work sells!

Hanging Standards

Art that does not meet GBA Hanging Standards cannot be displayed and will be rejected. GBA and the Show Committee reserve the right to review and approve any/all art and to determine the final display of all art in our shows. Our aim is to allow the maximum number of members to exhibit their best quality work.

All artwork will be organized and hung by the Hanging Committee. Complete Hanging Standards are available on berkshireartists.org.

All 2D work that is intended to be hung on the panels or walls is to be securely wired 1/3 down from the top and ready to hang with no saw-tooth or loop hangers permitted.

Alternative Mounting Methods: Unframed work should be mounted on a dimensionally stable substrate no less than ½” thick. The sides should be finished. Hanging wire standards apply. Photographs on metal must be presented according to current gallery standards and include backing to allow the piece to stand ½” away from the wall.

3D Art must be able to sit/stand on a level surface, or have a suitable stand included.

Complete Hanging Standards are available on the Guild’s website.
All artists in the show are expected to help with hosting the show. We will ask you to select a day/time for yourself, or your designated alternate, when you bring your work to check-in on Tuesday June 20.  We will provide training in the Square sales system.
