We are unable to provide shielded cases, projectors, televisions, stereos, or other devices for multimedia artwork. The gallery is also unable to setup and tear down installation works. If such works are accepted, we will inform the artist what additional requirements will be needed to setup their work in the gallery.
If an artist needs to ship the artwork to the gallery, all shipping costs and packaging will be the artist's responsibility. We require that shipped art is framed with plexiglass, if glass is needed. The artist will also be responsible for return shipping costs. Though the gallery will take great care in handling all artwork, the gallery will not be responsible for damage done to the artwork during shipping, packing, and unpacking.
