Eligibility / Exhibit Requirements – Open without a fee to members who have paid dues for 2019–2020 by September 30, 2019.
2D and 3D works are eligible, with no size restrictions. This is a judged show.

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, NEC reserves the right to decline any artwork they consider unacceptable. Work must be acceptable for all ages. (There is a Head Start program in the building.) Work must remain at NEC for the entire show.
