  • Framing: Gallery wrapped canvases and cradled panels do not need to be framed, but must have painted/finished sides and be wired for hanging. (Pre-painting the edges a solid color is acceptable so they are already dry for handling during hanging.) All other pieces turned in for judging and sale must be framed and wired for hanging.
