No. of Works

    • Combined length of two adjacent sides is between 170 and 210 cm
    • Combined length of two adjacent sides is between 210 and 250 cm

Acceptance Fee

  • Acceptance of a work will attract an acceptance fee (hanging fee) depending on frame dimensions.  The acceptance fee is in addition to the registration/entry fee.
  • Artworks displayed in the virtual gallery will also attract an acceptance fee in addition to the registration / entry fee. If however, the same painting has been accepted in the physical art show, then the acceptance fee will not apply.
  • All accepted works will be displayed.
  • Artists will be notified by both email and text message when their work has been accepted for hanging or display. Please ensure that your correct details are registered with Gallery 247.


  • Exhibits must be on durable material, framed with FLUSH HANGERS. Flush Hangers are those which do not protrude when paintings are stored. Eye hooks are not acceptable as these can cause damage to other works. Oil/acrylic paintings on canvas unframed but ready for hanging will be accepted.


  • Identifying labels, supplied by the Art Show organisers, must be affixed securely to the rear of the work.

Additional Works

  • Individual artists may at the discretion of the Organisers be invited to supply more than the maximum number.
