Important information for entry
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 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.
Images of Artworks and Artists may be used in promotional material by Nightcliff Community Bank
