Display Information and Requirements
The Kavanagh Gallery has grey pedestals for use during gallery shows. Smaller items will be in a locked display cabinet. If artwork will require any unusual display protocol it is the responsibility of the artist to provide these items. Due to the nature of the gallery’s ceiling structure we are unable to hang artwork from the ceiling. The gallery uses the Walker Display system for artwork hung on our walls. We are not able to affix artwork to the wall with nails or screws. If you have any unusual hanging requirements you must contact Fine Line in advance of delivering your work
All applicants are asked to submit an artist statement limited to 1000 characters. Artist’s statements will be displayed during the gallery show.
Fine Line provides security in the Kavanagh Gallery with 24/7 video monitoring. Insurance is
provided to artists from the time of the receipt of work until the end of the show. Insurance of
items during shipping is the responsibility of the artist (to and from Fine Line).
