Teen Art Show Rules

  • All work must be original interpretations by the artist.  No copies please.  We cannot use pieces hung at the library in previous years.
  • All work must be framed OR painted canvas on stretcher strips OR mounted on foam core and shrink-wrapped (no saran-wrap please).  We cannot accept three dimensional freestanding work. Foam core with acetate or shrink-wrap is the least expensive option.  Minimum matted or framed size is 11" x 14".  No gallery clips, plastic frames, or picture frames with easel supports/stands.  
  • An entrant may submit no more than two pieces.
  • All work will be accepted contingent on being reviewed by the installation committee. The library reserves the right to refuse any entry.  
  • While we make every effort to care for your art, the library is not responsible for the damage or loss of any work.
  • Images may be used in CRRL promotional material unless artist indicates otherwise.
  • Students must live in the City of Fredericksburg, or the counties of Spotsylvania, Stafford, or Westmoreland to enter.
  • Please bring TWO registration forms for EACH piece of artwork submitted.  Please help us label your work correctly by writing as neatly as you can.
  • Entries are committed until March 26. Work must be picked up March 27 - April 13 from the 2nd Floor Desk, unless you wish to donate your work to LoisAnn's Hope House*.
  • Questions?  Please call the Fredericksburg Branch Youth Services Department at 372-1144.

This year we would like to give participants the option of sharing their talent to improve lives of needy families in our area by beautifying their homes with artwork. LoisAnn's Hope House provides a safe haven for homeless mothers and their children from the central Rappahannock region who want to learn the life skills needed to become self-sufficient. While art show participants are certainly not required to donate their artwork to LoisAnn's Hope House, we will make donating as simple as possible for those who would like to do so.
