LAKE WORTH ART LEAGUE EXHIBITION RULES:

The Lake Worth Art League (LWAL) Gallery strives for a professional presentation of works of art. All artwork must meet the following guidelines to be accepted for any LWAL exhibition in the gallery or at any other location where work is presented by the LWAL:

Artwork must be original in conception and execution. No kits, copies, or giclees/prints. Paintings over photographs are not acceptable unless the photograph is an original photo taken by and embellished by the artist and submitted as “Hand Embellished Photography”. Artwork must be accurately labeled as to medium used. Photographs must be original. Photographs that are digitally enhanced must be submitted as “Digitally Enhanced Photography”.

Artwork containing propaganda will not be accepted. Foul/lewd depiction or text not acceptable. Tasteful nudes will be considered.

All artwork must be for sale. Artwork must remain on exhibition until the end of the show, unless the piece sells and the buyer wants immediate possession after purchase. In this case, the piece sold must be replaced with another work by the artist similar in size. The replacement piece must be provided by the next day.

Artwork may repeat if it has not won a prize, one more time per season.

Once your art has been accepted for exhibition it will be hung by the hanging committee who will take care all pieces are displayed at their best for each exhibition. Once artwork is hung in the show, you may not change its location.

2-D artwork must be clearly labeled on back upper right hand corner with artist’s name, title of the work, medium, price and artist’s phone number. 

Size limited to 12” including frame for wall hung work and weight not over 30 lbs. Frames should be in good condition. Glazing must be plastic and fit the frame. Glazing must not be loose or bulging. Broken, scratched, chipped or dirty glazing not acceptable. Matting must be clean. Paint may not be wet. Only gallery wrapped canvas accepted without frame; edges must be neatly painted and no staples, nails, etc. may be showing.

All 2-D work must be wired for hanging. Wire must be attached using d-rings or screw eyes. Wire must be the correct guage for the weight of the piece and at least 2” below top of frame at center. Ends of wires must be wrapped so that no sharp ends are exposed.

No one may enter or remove any artwork that is not their own work, unless arrangements are made by the artist with the gallery naming a specific person to act for them.

The LWAL takes care to handle all artwork gently, however, the LWAL is not responsible for any damages to or any loss of any piece of art that may occur. Each LWAL member artist has liability only insurance, through their membership.

Artwork that is sold through the gallery requires a 20% commission to the gallery. This amount will be deducted from the artist’s proceeds if the purchase is made directly through the gallery. The gallery is entitled to commission when any work is sold related to or as a result of any LWAL show. Any artist found to not have paid commission to the gallery will lose their LWAL membership and will not be able to show in any future LWAL sponsored exhibition.

Each exhibiting artist must work in the gallery each time they exhibit, or pay a fee so that a replacement worker can be hired.

Once a piece has been accepted for take-in, fees are not refundable. Any artwork left over 15 days after a scheduled show pick-up will be charged a storage fee of $50. Art remaining after 45 days will become the property of the LWAL.

“Never Look Back” by  Dana Axel

 

Dana Axel has studied art since High School (Great Neck North Senior High), in Long Island, New York.  At Hofstra University, she was mentored by Professor Perle Fine, a major figure in the Abstract Expression era.  After receiving her B.S. in Education, Specialization Fine Arts as well as all of the painting courses towards the Master of Fine Arts, Dana taught art in the Port Washington School District, New York.

Dana’s artwork has been seen in many gallery shows in New York State and New England:  Emily Lowe Gallery; Heckshire Art Museum; Huntington Art League; South Shore Arts Council; the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library Art Shows;  Southern Vermont Art Center, and Stratton Mountain Arts Festivals. A proud member and exhibitor of the Lake Worth Art League since 2012, Dana has served on the Board of Directors for four years. Her paintings have been honored in a Two Person Art Exhibit in the South Palm Beach Town Council Hall, the Art Expo at Valencia Pointe, the Compass Community Center, and Artisans On The Ave in Lake Worth.

 

Artwork by Dana Axel

 

Dana tells The Rickie Report, “Using a “minimalist” vocabulary, I express my perception in a “visual voice” conveyed in a Hard-Edged Abstraction style. Predominantly painting with acrylic on canvas, my work is both non-representational and figurative.  I use collage as preliminary sketches for my paintings. Found imagery and forms are arranged, added to and subtracted from, until my concept emerges”.
