CONDITIONS OF ENTRY
All exhibits must be the original work of the exhibitor who must be a resident of Australia. Works exhibited in previous Sorrento Art Shows will not be accepted. No hand painted copies of paintings, imported or otherwise, will be accepted for exhibition. No more than 3 exhibits will be accepted from any one exhibitor unless authorised by the Committee.
Entry to our show is by Invitation Only. We need to restrict the number of entries as we have limited hanging space and no painting storage facilities.
If you have entered in any one of our shows during the last three years you will automatically receive an entry form for the 2020 show. This entry form will be sent to you by either email or Australia Post early in September.
If you are an artist who has been absent from our show for the last three years, or you are an artist new to our show, you will need to contact us to ensure that a position is available. Please use either the Contact page on our website or send an entry request email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. As a last resort you may ring 0432 420 336.

Judging for Awards
Only three works from any artist will be eligible for judging for the Artshow awards. Artists submitting more than three entries should nominate on their entry form which three of their works are to be judged. If this is not done, the committee will nominate the artist’s three most expensive works.
If the exhibit is a painting it must be on durable material, framed with FLUSH HANGERS. Flush Hangers are those which do not protrude when paintings are stored. Eye hooks are not acceptable as these can cause damage to other works. Oil/acrylic paintings on canvas unframed but ready for hanging will be accepted. Each exhibit must contain some form of identifying label with the exhibit title, artist name and selling price.
The Committee will arrange for, and the exhibitor permit, the publication and sale to the public of a catalogue containing all entries accepted and the names and other particulars of the exhibitors, but the Committee does not accept any responsibility for error, wrong description, omission or any other defect in the publication of such catalogue.
The proceeds of sale of the catalogues are exclusively those of the Committee, to be applied by it in defraying the expenses of the exhibition and for charitable purposes. Acceptance of entries and display of exhibits shall be at the sole discretion of the Committee which reserves the right to refuse any entry or refuse to display an exhibit.
