· Artwork(s) accepted will be displayed at the expertise and discretion of the Adjudication committee. The ArtPod Jury Committee retains the right to refuse any work deemed unacceptable upon viewing in person. Sometimes submitted photographs are not clear and not representational despite everyone’s best intentions. Additionally, artwork has been refused in the past if the framing is unsatisfactory, if the canvas is moldy or still wet, or if hanging/display gear is not included. Lastly, a piece may be declined on hanging day if we determine we cannot display it in manner we deem safe to the piece and/or viewers.

· ArtPod does not have insurance for items in the show so all artwork is left at the owner’s risk although works on display are never left unattended when the Gallery is open and ArtPod will make every effort to protect work.

· Any work sold during the show will be subject to a 25% commission to ArtPod.

· Artwork is to remain up for the duration of the show and picked up, by artist or buyer, at 4 pm on the last day of the event, unless alternative arrangements have been agreed upon by ArtPod.

· Payment will be made to artists for any work sold within one week of the end of the show.
