Are there size limitations?
Students can submit one piece. It should be no larger than 36″ in any direction (including frame) to make sure there is room to display everyone’s work. For digital artworks, your instructor will collect the work for you to be displayed on our gallery screen.
Should my artwork be ready to hang?
Yes. This doesn’t mean that it needs to be framed, but there should be a way for us to display your work properly without causing damage to your work. Works on paper without frames will be hung using magnets.

When can I pick up my work?
You can pick up your artwork after the Closing Reception or between January 27-February 10 during Fleisher’s regular business hours.
