Please prepare your work for us to hang

The ArtSpace experiences moderate to severe winds and while the sea breeze is refreshing to feel it can lift even heavy pieces of art and throw them.  Art is displayed on fencing panels or on the ground and we've learned that using cable ties to secure it is our safest and most reliable option in the wind.

We will have hooks and cable ties for registered entries but artists must prepare their own work to hang.

Cardboard and paper are impossible to hang and damage is guaranteed.  

All artwork is displayed at the owners risk.
