Creative Spirit reserves the right to refuse any artwork that it deems inappropriate for community viewing.  Artwork must be 2D (paintings, drawings, collage, photographs, etc.), however, shadowboxes and assemblage pieces are acceptable if they fulfill size/hanging requirements. Original artwork only, please (no reproductions or prints). 



Requirements ensure that a) artwork is properly protected, b) the customer is satisfied with the quality of his/her purchase, c) the gallery maintains a professional appearance, and d) the gallery can accommodate the maximum number of pieces. Creative Spirit has the right to reject any piece that does not comply with these requirements.

Size and quantity of artwork must be approved by Creative Spirit.

All work must be hang ready.  Artwork will be hung with clear fishing line from a frame rail (no nails).  Work must be framed and have screw eyes (or D-rings) and wire across the back.  Exceptions include photography mounted on unconventional material, such as metal or wood.  Please no saw tooth hangers.   Wire should be secured 1/4 to 1/3 down from the top of pieces to ensure that they hang at a pleasing angle.  

Matted work must be framed with glass or plexi-glass.  Metal frames should have hardware that screws securely in the track (no sliders).   Gallery wrapped canvas (without a frame) is acceptable with deep profile stretcher (at least 1.5 inches), stapled on the back with clean or painted sides. Wet paintings will not be accepted.
