FRAMING AND PRESENTING YOUR ARTWORK

Salem Arts Galleries ada Shop utilizes a hanging system consisting of a wire or rod suspended from a rail near the ceiling. We rarely use nails in our walls. Because of this it's very important to frame and present your work properly by following these rules. 

Submitted items will be inspected at take in. We're having a lot of issues with poor framing. 

  • All work MUST be properly framed or otherwise presented for hanging. 
  • Works on paper must be under glass (Not Plastic).
  • Plastic clip frames, Table frames (with leaning back), and document frames will no longer be accepted in the gallery. Don't use them. 
  • Framed items must include a taught wire properly fastened to the top quarter of the frame back. 
  • Artwork framed using sawtooth hangars, triangle hangars, and holes as part of the frame will be rejected.
  • Loose wires or wired below the top quarter will be rejected. If you can see the wire above the frame it's wrong.
