What are your requirements for framing and matting?

All paintings are to be framed in wood or metal; acceptable colors include gold, silver, black, brown or natural wood tones. Frames are to be plain and unadorned and should not exceed 3” in width. They must be ready for hanging with wire in place. See some examples of frames that were questionable and a decision was made to accept/not accept.

Plexiglass must be used — NO GLASS. Work may be varnished or waxed before framing (These paintings do not require plexiglass).

Maximum frame size may not exceed 48” in either direction. No image may be smaller than 8” x 10”.

Mats or liners, if any, must be white or a light neutral color. Improperly framed pieces or those unsuitable for hanging will be returned and the artist will be ineligible to enter a GWS exhibition for two years..
