More Details

 

The Palo Alto Camera Club will hold a print exhibition of members’ works in the Sabrato Hall of the Community School for Music and Arts, 230 San Antonio Circle, Mountain View from March 13th through April 8th 2018.  All members are encouraged to exhibit and are guaranteed to get at least one of their entries accepted.  We anticipate showing between 50 and 60 prints.  In an effort to allow the most members to participate, the only requirement on image content is that it be family friendly. 

 

Members will first upload up to four digital images of prints they would like to show and will assign a priority from 1 to 4 to each of their images.  Uploading will be through the PACC website similar to entries for our print competitions.  On the PACC website, under MY PACC select Current Exhibition or select Current Exhibition on the right side of the home page.  For each of your images, you will enter the title, the priority and in the Mat Size box you will enter the outside dimensions of your finished artwork. The height of your finished artwork must be between 16 and 30 inches and the width must be between 16 and 30 inches.  For example, common sizes in this range are 20W x 16H, 16W x 30H, 24W x 24H. 

 

IMPORTANTWe will allocate wall space based on your input for dimensions in inches, so make sure you enter the size exactly as in this exampleIf your finished art work is 20 inches wide and 16 inches high, you will enter 20W x 16H (not 20 x 16, not 16 x 20, not anything else, just 20W x 16H!).

 

Images will be accepted according to priority.  All Priority 1 images will be accepted.  Then we will accept as many Priority 2 images as possible, probably all of them.  Then we will accept Priority 3 images, and so forth.  If there is not space for all images of one priority, images from that priority will first be accepted based on how images fit with other images in the exhibition in terms of size and content and then by subjective judgment of the organizers.  Members will then be notified which of their images have been accepted so they have more than two weeks, including three weekends, to prepare their artwork for the exhibition.

 

Requirements

 

For this exhibition, your finished artwork can be any of the following:

1.     Prints that are matted and framed, with glass or acrylic glazing.  (If you need glazing, you might consider acrylic glazing because it’s lighter and safer.)  Framed prints must be mounted in white or off-white mats and framed in black frames.  For framed prints, the preferred space between the frame and the print, i.e. the border provided by the mat, is 2 to 4 inches.  The width of the edge of the frame, looking straight on, should be less than one inch.  Instructions on matting and framing prints can be found here:

http://pacamera.com/elements-of-archival-print-matting-and-framing/ 

 

2.     Prints in floating frames without glazing

 

3.     Prints on metal without frames.

 

Regardless of how your prints are mounted, the height of your finished artwork must be between 16 and 30 inches and the width must be between 16 and 30 inches. 

 

All artwork must be hung by wire.  In the hanging position, the middle of the wire should be about 5 inches below the top of the frame.

 

If you have questions about matting and framing contact Jim Colton, (james.colton10@gmail.com; 650-464-1775).

 

(Note:  We are also planning an exhibition of matted but unframed prints in November 2018.)
