Some general rules that all artists MUST follow:

- No nails, tape, sticky paste to hang the works; only screws allowed. We are going to have different kinds of screws along with various drills on site, available for all artists to use, but there might be a waiting list, so bring your own materials if you can.

- At least 2 ft. from the ground and 2 ft. from the top empty, as well as 3/4 of a ft from each side of each artist's space must be left empty to avoid an overcrowded look that would diminish the art on display.

- No easels allowed on the fair grounds.

- No art that has not been approved prior to the installation day can be exhibited.

- Lastly, be aware that the fair director has a last say on the installation of each artist's space and has a right to change the display at all times of the installation and the fair is he feels that would be best for the artists's work and the fair in general.
