WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO INSPECT ALL ARTWORK ENTERED INTO OUR ANNUAL EXHIBITION. BY SUBMITTING AN ENTRY THE ARTIST IS CONSENTING TO THESE TERMS.
Our prospectus states that all entries to out show are to be original works of art. Since entries are in the form of a CD or digital entry, we must assume that the artists entering our show are doing so in good faith. It is not until we have the work in our possession that we are able to further inspect the artwork entered. In the event of any work being questioned as to whether or not it is an original painting, we reserve the right to have any work entered into our exhibition authenticated by whoever or whatever means necessary including but not limited to analysis of paint film, removal of painting to inspect edges of works, etc. Do to the proliferation of computer enhanced images and giclee on canvas technology, it has become imperative that we adopt this policy to uphold the integrity of our organization.
