Artwork created in an instructional setting, including, but not limited to workshops and art classes are not eligible for submission. No direct copying of stock images, historic photos, or of any reference to which you do not have permission from the photographer or holder of the copyright. However, using such images in a piece (eg. collage) where those images have been significantly transformed is allowed.
Copies and reproductions of original works of art, whether embellished or not, are not eligible for submission. However, prints such as photographs, lithographs, woodcuts, engravings, etching, screen prints, and digital works are acceptable as long as they are labeled as such.
Each member may submit 1 (one) piece. All entries must be dry and wired for hanging (no sawtooth hangers!) with a label attached to the back of the artwork including your name, the title, media, and price. The Guild reserves the right to decline any work that does not meet the above requirements.
Also, Wheaton’s reserves the right to decline any artwork they consider unacceptable. Work must remain at Wheaton’s for the entire show.
