  • Art to be hung on walls should be dry and securely wired according to weight with appropriate wire fasteners. Sawtooth hangers are not accepted except under special circumstances with prior approval. 
  • Works submitted may not have been previously shown in a RiverArts exhibit.
  • Art should be original. Reproductions of paintings or drawings such as giclees printed on canvas or paper are not accepted.
  • Lithographs, etchings and other printmaking works of art should be created by the artist, numbered and signed.
  • Photographic prints, digital and film, should be printed from the artists’ negative or digital file, ideally by or under the direction of the artist, and numbered and signed.
  • Works on paper should be framed behind glass or plexiglass.
  • Unframed works of fine art are accepted if appropriately finished and wired for hanging.
  • Contact the gallery before submitting artwork over 40". We will do our best to accept oversized artwork but it will depend on the number of entries and available space in the exhibit. 
  • Works of art requiring special or unusual display structures should be submitted with the structure for display. Contact the gallery to make special arrangements for items that are oversized or unusually heavy.
  • Artists submitting work agree that the work will remain at the gallery until the end of the show unless special circumstances warrant otherwise.
  • Artists agree to grant Chestertown RiverArts permission to use images of submitted work for promotional purposes, online and in print, at RiverArts' discretion.
  • All work must be for sale unless the curator has solicited the work for a special circumstance.
  • RiverArts retains a 35% commission on all sales
