STEP 2 | PREPARE YOUR ARTWORK

Due to the innovative hanging system at FHFAC -- *YOU* will need to add to or modify your hanging
hardware. IF YOU FAIL TO MAKE THESE CHANGES YOUR ARTWORK WILL NOT HANG CORRECTLY.




                                               Example of D Ring on
                                               Wood Frame – if
                                               possible install with D
                                               pointing to the top of
                                               the frame.




                                                     Example of screw
                                                     eye in canvas
                                                     wrapped frame.




                                                                                     Page 4 of 8
ISEA 19TH ANNUAL JURIED EXHIBITION | ARTWORK INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 2 | PREPARE YOUR ARTWORK, CONTINUED

Wooden frames – Firmly install D Rings or wire hanging hardware within 2” from the top of your artwork
on the two vertical sides of the frame. These should both be the same distance from the top. You do
not need to attach a wire. If possible, install with the round part of the “D” positioned toward the top of
your artwork.




                                                        Example of wire
                                                        hanging hardware
                                                        moved up and
                                                        firmly secured in
                                                        metal frame.




Metal frames – MOVE and firmly secure your wire hanging hardware to within 2” of the top of your
frame on the two side channels of the frame. These should both be the same distance from the top.
You may leave your wire attached.




                                                                                          Page 5 of 8
ISEA 19TH ANNUAL JURIED EXHIBITION | ARTWORK INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 3 | PREPARE YOUR SHIPPING CONTAINER
If you are hand-delivering your artwork, please see instructions below.

 Verify with your “shipper of choice” their weight and size restrictions so that you meet their
  requirements and limitations.
      o Ask about PREPAID RETURN shipping and if the document may be inserted into your
          container at their counter.
      o Ask if they will be able to seal the container for you once the return shipping document is
          inserted. This may require that you take your container to the shipping company location
          versus using pickup at your business or home.

 Confirm with your shipper when YOU need to send your artwork. It needs to arrive at Forest Hills
  Fine Art Center between the dates of May 17, 2010 and May 21, 2010 and NOT LATER THAN May
  21, 2010.
 Return shipping will occur on July 1, 2010.
      o Make note of your return tracking number. You will be able to monitor the progress of
          your artwork return. We will NOT be able to provide this information.
 We will be writing your NAME large on the outside of your shipping container to assist in our repack
  at the end of the exhibit. If you wish to write your name LARGE in advance -- please do so.
 Carefully position and pack your artwork in your shipping container.
      o Temporarily secure your container. You will need to insert your PREPAID RETURN shipping
          document and the “RETURN SHIPPING” form just before the container is finally sealed at the
          shipping company.
 Tape your completed “RETURN SHIPPING” form to the PREPAID RETURN shipping label from you
  shipper and insert into your shipping container. Seal your container.
