  • All work must be original interpretations by the artist – no copies.
  • We cannot use pieces hung in the library in previous years.
  • An entrant may submit no more than two pieces.

  • Entries are committed until March 25. 
  • Work must be picked up between March 28 - April 12 from the 2nd floor desk, unless you wish to donate your work to Hope House.

    All work must be framed OR painted canvas on stretcher strips OR mounted on foam core and shrink-wrapped (no saran-wrap please). Foam core with acetate or shrink-wrap is the least expensive option.
