Matting and framing must meet generally recognized gallery standards. Please use mats that are acid free and neutral in color. Gallery frames in black wood or metal are preferred. Frames should be new or in excellent condition. Frames for metal photographs are not required. Members will be responsible for delivering and picking up their artwork on the dates and times above.
