Presentation of paintings for exhibitions
The Hanging Committee
When you submit a framed painting to be hung
at one of our exhibitions, the hanging committee will be more
interested in the back than the front. If your framing doesn't meet
their standards, you will need to correct what's wrong before
re-submitting it. These
guidelines will help you get the presentation right first time.
1. Frames should be in good condition, with good
2. We recommend that you don't use non-reflective
glass as it tends to make the pictures look a bit dull.
3. Use thick cardboard or hardboard for the backing
4. Make sure that your painting and backing board
(and glass if used) are firmly held in place in the frame with clips or
Use gum strip or framers self-adhesive tape to
seal the backing board.
6. Screw D rings
approximately 1/3rd of the way down the side of the frame. Tie nylon
cord taut between them. This also applies to box canvases.
7. If your frame is narrow, you can fix the D rings
to the backing board using special rivets.
