All work must be identified (labelled) with the artist name and contact information when delivered.

Accepted work must be delivered ready to install. 2-D works must be appropriately wired, no saw tooth hangers. 

Artspace has a limited number of pedestals available, however the artist may have to provide any special display fixtures required. 

Suitability of works which must be suspended, hung in windows, requiring a power source, are especially heavy, are very large, or have other special installation requirements will be determined on an individual basis. 

Professional installation will be provided by Artspace. Care will be taken when handling and displaying all artwork, however Summit Artspace waives responsibility for either damage or loss of artwork.
