On Originality    Any entry that is recognized as a copy will not be accepted. The following definition of original work was composed by professional artist Mary Back of Dubois, Wyoming:

"A direct copy of another's artwork is not acceptable whether the work copied is the actual artwork or a photograph of it published in a magazine or book, and whether or not the size is different.  A direct copy of a postcard or other published photograph is not acceptable, on the grounds that the composition and color scheme are someone else's.  It is acceptable to work from your own photographs, for in that case, you have decided on the composition and chosen the lighting which decides the color scheme.  Within these concepts, we leave it to the conscience of the artist, whether the work he submits is his own work, or the entire creative inspiration of someone else."

Display    All works to be hung must be securely wired and ready for display. All entries must remain on exhibit until the show closes. Artwork that is sold will remain until the show closes and at that time can be picked up or will be shipped to the buyer. Artists who desire to insure their work must carry their own insurance. The Lander Art Center will not be responsible in case of loss or damage. All reasonable care will be taken with entries. We urge you to consider plexiglas in place of glass.

Shipping    Return shipping must be pre-paid UPS or Fedex.

Deadlines    The Lander Art Center is a nonprofit organization funded through the community’s generous donations and grants. As a result, we have limited funds and manpower to accomplish our work. Exhibition and event deadlines allow us to manage our workload and maintain quality. Therefore, it is very important that we receive your entry within the established time frame. Please consider this as you decide when and what shows to enter. We update our website as often as possible to aid in the exhibition entry process.
