ARTWORK & REPRODUCTION POLICY
An artist's statement must be prominently displayed in the artist’s booth describing the art, its processes and intent. Artists who choose to use reproductions of original works must remember to mark each reproduction as a "reproduction." Reproductions are limited to 20% of booth space and must be kept in a browsing bin; they may not be hung in display space.
Definition of a reproduction: If an original work is copied and reproduced by digital or photographic means and printed on an offset press, Xerox copier, a serigraph press, or through a computer by means of an inkjet or laser printer, it is a reproduction.
Each piece must be clearly labeled as a reproduction.
Definition for limited edition prints: this includes all media of hand-printed editions such as: intaglio, lithography, woodcuts, linocuts, serigraphy, as well as photographs. Editions must not exceed 250 in an edition and must be marked as “limited edition prints.” Note cards, postcards, calendars, coloring books, food products, posters, t-shirts, velvet, etc. are not allowed under this policy. Ceramics made from commercial molds, commercially fabricated jewelry forms and settings, and items made from hobby store kits are also not acceptable.
