EXHIBIT INFO
Artworks need not be floral theme - there is no theme for the exhibit. Works in any medium, theme, and subject are accepted (child appropriate). 

This is a PRE-JURIED EXHIBIT. A juried exhibit can be a vital career step for all artists. The juror will subjectively screen submitted images and choose accepted pieces for exhibition based on technical skills and creativity. A MAXIMUM OF FOUR ARTWORKS PER ARTIST WILL BE JURIED INTO THE EXHIBIT. Prizes will be awarded from the pre-juried pieces.

ELIGIBILITY
Entry into this exhibit is open to artists 18+ years.   All work must be original in creation & concept (no studies or replications of other works), created in the past 3 years, and not previously shown at FCA. FCA reserves the right to refuse any work.

PRESENTATION
Size requirements for 2-D works: no minimum size, maximum 36 x 42 framed; all works must be framed in professional condition or wall mounted or wrapped canvas; MUST BE WIRED - NO SAW TOOTH OR CLIP AND CORD HANGERS. Small pieces and 3-D works should be prepared for hanging or pedestal display (FCA has pedestals). All works must be 40 lbs or less.  

PUBLICITY
Submission of work for exhibition grants permission for the photographing or use of artwork images for publicity purposes. 

LIABILITY
FCA strongly encourages artists to carry their own insurance. All reasonable care will be taken in the handling of works; however, FCA is not responsible for loss or damage, however caused. Catastrophic loss insurance does apply. YOUR ONLINE SUBMISSION CONSTITUTES AGREEMENT WITH  THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS.

CHECK-IN / CHECK-OUT / PICK-UP
All artworks submitted in person must be checked in and out with a representative of FCA during the time frames indicated below. Any works submitted to the show not claimed by the artist within 30 days of pickup deadline become property of FCA unless prior arrangements have been made. 

FCA IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR CONTACTING ARTISTS TO PICK UP THEIR WORK. FCA WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR WORKS NOT PROPERLY CHECKED IN AND OUT WITH FCA STAFF.
