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 5 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.
For our March 2021 Show Covid 19 precautions have forced us to impose further restrictions on participating artist numbers. This means that entry forms will not be generally available and only a small number of our usual artists, selected at random, will receive an entry form. The Art Show committee apologizes for this situation and we sincerely hope that our 2022 show will be back to normal.
Participating artists must ensure that their entry information reaches the Committee by 21 February 2021.

Judging for Awards
All works submitted will be eligible for judging.
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.
