Maximum height or width of any artwork must not exceed 96" including the frame. Artwork must fit through a 6'6" high x 36” wide door. There is a premium wall which is 17’ long for large size works. Work delivered must be installation-ready. Non-traditional art & photographic works in two-dimensional form and art & photographic wall sculptures must be wired or cleated for hanging. We use a cable hanging system (nails and screws are not drilled into the walls) on the perimeter walls of the gallery.  Because the cable hooks must not show, the top of the hanging wire should be at least 3" below the top of the frame.  Cleated work will generally not be suitable for cable hanging and will be placed on the T-Walls or other non-cabled wall.  All art must be mounted, framed, or otherwise suitably prepared for hanging.  Frames must be in good condition and properly equipped with wire for hanging. The wire and eye screws must not show when the artwork is hung.  Maximum weight for any artwork is 10 Ibs. per linear foot of width.
