Each artist who wants to participate in the October LCAL show at the Starline Factory must submit two (2) photos of each work. One photo of the work framed and one of just the artwork (same procedure as for our spring members show). Each artist can submit up to three (3) pieces. Photos should be sent to Jeff Harold at jeff@jeffharoldphotography.com. 

We are going to be limited to between 20 and 30 pieces so we will do the selection as follows. Jeff will send the photos to Tom Trausch whose first step will be to select the best one of what each artist submits. This means every artist will have at least one work hung. 

Tom will then select what he feels are the best of the remaining works of all of the artists until he has selected a total of 30 works. These will be hung as space allows. If there are less than 16 artists submitting work then each artist will have two pieces hung if they submitted more than one. 

The committee hanging the show will make any last minute decisions on how many works can be displayed based on the available space. Framed and unframed pieces must be equipped with stretched wire. Artwork without a wire will not be displayed.
