2)  The hanging fee per artwork is £5.00 if the artwork is “For sale” or £7.50 if it is “Not for sale.” The entry fee is payable - cash or cheque - upon submission and acceptance of the paintings on the "handing-in day" Monday, 5th August.

Labelling and hanging instructions.
Each artwork, whether in landscape or portrait format, must have picture screws or D rings ATTACHED TO AND POSITIONED 1/3 OF THE WAY DOWN THE FRAME, NOT THE BACKING BOARD, along with a robust hanging cord. This will ensure that the artwork is displayed correctly.

The following information must be on a LABEL ATTACHED TO A STRING LONG ENOUGH TO EXTEND BELOW THE PAINTING WHEN HUNG :

* Name and telephone number of the artist;

* Title of the artwork;
* Medium;
* Price or “Not for sale.”

Neither Llanelli Art Society nor the Library can take responsibility for any artwork left behind after the deadline of 12.00 noon on the specified Collection day.

Note - If you have some spare time on either day, your assistance with the exhibition's assembly and/or disassembly would be appreciated. Please get in touch with a member of the Committee.
