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

All forms of art are eligible provided it can be successfully displayed at the jetty.

Some examples:

Recycled - When you recycle something, you process it so it can be used again. Needs to be a very high percentage of reused items except for any glue or paint.

3D -  3D art is perceived to have height, width and depth, and having these three makes it a form; meaning all 3D arts have form. It is not flat like paintings, drawings and photographs.

Collage - Not just magazine pictures on paper in the world of fine art collage is a specific art term, meaning a piece formed primarily by images that are adhered to an item to form a new image. (mosaic included)

Mixed media - Mixed media simply means more than one medium being used in a piece, so it can be painting and magazine images, assembled junk, ink and watercolor, etc etc

Painting - A painting is an image (artwork) created using pigments (color) on a surface (ground) such as paper or canvas. The pigment may be in a wet form, such as paint, or a dry form.
