Sunday afternoon you may leave one or two paintings for a month-long exhibit at the Arboretum. This show will be hung Monday at 1 p.m. by the staff.
To qualify, your artwork must be properly framed and hanging by D rings or eye screws and picture wire. No “zebra hooks” mounted in the center of the frame will be accepted.

All artwork must be identified by a label on the back stating the title, image size, medium, and price. If you have a business card with email, address, and phone number, that should also be taped to the back of each work. We will need you to fill out and sign hold harmless agreements.
