Guidelines for exhibits
We have guidelines to assist with many possible situations. Keep in mind each location was obtained through a sometimes painstaking and delicate process.
Professionalism: Professionalism is an essential part of building trust and relationships with collectors, businesses and the artists community. Do not contact exhibiting locations regarding rotation times, sales or private exhibits*. Never take it upon yourself to change, rotate or address businesses without first contacting coordinator, it is unbecoming and unprofessional.
Art: All art is to be wired, framed (or sides painted), tagged and ready to sell. No staples or saw-tooth hangers. Work that is still wet is not acceptable for exhibit. We exhibit in businesses that are open to the public and do allow art that depicts; nudity, all forms of religion, horror, erotic or graphic violence.
Tags: SCA tags, provided (link top of page), are to be used; personal business cards are not tags. If you would like to create your own tags they must state "SouthCarolinaArtists.com" or "South Carolina Artists Exhibit". Suggestion: Tags printed on card stock have a more professional appeal. Handwritten tags: (as shown on SCA tags) title, artist name, phone # & price or NFS. Do not write in cursive, add email, website, social network or other impertinent info. It looks messy. Messy tags makes your art & the exhibit look messy. Art will be removed if not corrected.
Communication: It is the duty of all members to maintain communication regarding exhibits, shows or rotations. Failure to confirm exhibits dates & times and a failure to arrive at scheduled exhibits lead to a loss of exhibit.*
Installations & rotations: Dates & times are arranged through the coordinator. Do not contact the owner to set up your own time. A director attends all rotations and will reject any work not suitable for exhibit (i.e. unacceptable work or not wired). It is the responsibility of each artist to collect their art. Neither the location or our group is able to store art. Work not collected at rotation will be donated.
Maintenance: Pictures are taken at installations only for promotion. Artists should maintain a personal record of location, titles & prices. Art is to remain at location for listed length of time. No empty spaces are allowed, if you sell or remove art you must replace it immediately.
Independent Rotation 'vs' Rotation Director: An independent Rotation means the artist who signs up for the location will arrive at the specified date/time, introduce themselves to the contact person, go to space allocated for SCA, make sure all work is tagged, hang art, take pictures, leave cards. Afterwards artists then email pictures or tag SCA on Facebook to promote exhibit. A Rotation Director attends installs, assists hanging, takes pictures to help promote location & exhibit. Locations not listing a Rotation Director means Coordinator will be in attendance, unless otherwise noted.
*Failure to adhere to SCA guidelines may require removal from exhibit or SCA.
