- Wall art must be labeled on the back with title and artist name.
- Artists may bring up to five prints or original art no more than 1/3 inch thick for the art rack.
- All art rack art must be backed, in clear protective bags, and clearly labeled as a print or an original with artist’s name and price. Title is optional.

- In addition to accepted wall art, artists may bring up to four pieces of tabletop art or gift items. All items must be no taller than 12”.
- Tabletop original art should be framed with the exception of gallery-wrapped canvases, works measuring under 4”x 6”, or works on unique substrates in which cases edges should be painted or finished.
- Gift items may be individual artistic products, jewelry, sets of notecards, or small baskets of multiple similar items.
- Jewelry will be accepted in the order of submission to each show, four artists maximum.
- Each accepted artist will get assigned one shelf 15”Wx13”Dx15”H in our glass cabinet to display their jewelry.
- All items are to be clearly labeled with artist name and price. Title is optional.
- Artists are encouraged to bring 15-20 business cards measuring no more than 2” x 3.5” either vertically or horizontally
- 15 Postcards for art shows in which the artist is participating may be displayed. No other long term promotional materials are permitted.
- All written gallery procedures contained in the white binder on the desk are to be followed.
- Unless there is an emergency, each participating artist is responsible for and agrees to host the required number of shifts within the duration of the show. This is usually 4 three-hour shifts, but may vary depending on number of participating artists.
- If the hosting artist cannot host their required shift, they agree to find a replacement SCAA member host.
- Any participating artist in a nonemergency situation who does not fulfill their hosting requirements will be ineligible to participate in the next SCAA gallery show.
- When hosting, artists may bring one additional original artwork to be displayed on an SCAA easel (or two if providing their own double easel) or five small artworks or gift items to be displayed on the middle or bottom shelf of the glass shelving pending space available.
- All extra artwork must be taken home at the end of the hosting shift.
- No existing artwork may be moved to display the extra pieces.
- A hosting artist may use the gallery’s 4’ table to work on artwork. This table should only be set up near the desk or outside the gallery, never in the middle of the room.
- Any medium with an odor should not be used inside the gallery. Artists can set up outside of the gallery with their hosting partners permission.
- Artists working on artwork during their shift must take care to avoid spills or spatters. The cleanup of any spills will be the responsibility of the artist who made the spill.
- When a piece of art sells, the artist who created it may bring a replacement piece.
- Gallery hosts should always notify a fellow artist if a piece of their art sells. Contact information is in the white binder for each show.
