ANAC EXHIBT RULES (REVISED FEB. 19, 2012)
READ RULES OVER CAREFULLY TO INSURE YOUR WORK WILL BE SEEN BY THE JUDGE.
Two-dimensional work shall not exceed 40" wide by 40" high. The 40" includes the frame. All work must be properly framed or have exposed perimeter edges finished consistent with the art piece. Work must be ready for hanging (use screw eyes and wire - NO SAWTOOTHS) and must be framed using Plexiglass (except pastels). Gallery wrapped canvas is acceptable without a frame but the canvas edges must be painted around the sides. Edges must be lapped and ALL STAPLES MUST BE COVERED. If chosen for the travel show, ANAC will provide the carry case. Any two dimensional artwork which has glass as a medium must provide a travel container with the same requirements as three dimensional art work.
Three-dimensional work (free standing or relief on the wall) shall not exceed 36" in any direction . It shall not exceed 75 lbs in weight. The 75 lbs includes the weight of the packing box. A traveling container, even if it hangs on the wall, of quality construction in proportion to your artwork is required. If upon inspection the exhibit board votes that the container is not of sufficient construction to withstand the rigors of travel, the piece will NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR JUDGING. All 3-D shipping containers MUST REMAIN with the artwork until the judging is completed. The Exhibit Board will return the containers to the club packing storage area after judging. All 3-D artists must provide a pedestal (if needed) for the conference show only. If the piece is chosen to travel, each club that participates is responsible to have a proper pedestal to safely display the artwork. Eliminating traveling pedestals should cut down excess size and weight.
A maximum of two art pieces may be exhibited by an ANAC member. Work must have been completed in the last two years. No work previously shown at ANAC can be entered. This includes closely copied images from any of your previous ANAC submitted work. All work must be properly identified on the artwork.
IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE MEMBERS WHO’S ARTWORK WILL BE GOING ON TO THE STATE ANAC SHOW YOU WILL FIND ADDITIONAL RULES AT www.nebraskaartclubs.org.
