SELECTION & HAND IN
Pre-selection results: Monday 13 June 2016. Please log into your account for results of work that has been pre-selected for the exhibition by the RSA Hanging and Selection Committee. In line with other exhibiting societies please note there will now be a £10 administration fee for any works hung in the exhibition payable on Hand In days. Any works not included in the final selection will be refunded this admin fee.
Hand in for pre-selected work: Friday 1 & Saturday 2 July, 10am – 4.30pm. Pre-selected works must be delivered to the South Door of the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh (facing the Scottish National Gallery on the Mound). Artists are not allowed to hand in different or substitute works to those that have been pre-selected. All wrapping and packing must be removed from the Academy. Work will not be received outwith the stated hours.
Final selection notification: Thursday 7 July. Artists will be sent an email notification to confirm whether or not their work is in the exhibition. If your work is not selected for the exhibition, please arrange for the uplift of your works on Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 July, 10am – 4.30pm.
Labels: Labels will be posted to pre-selected artists and will also be available at the RSA on Hand-in day. Every work submitted must be accompanied by an RSA Label. Labels must be SECURELY attached to each work with string which is gaffer taped or stapled to the back/frame. Each label is in three sections, A, B and ARTIST RECEIPT, all of which must be clearly completed in BLOCK CAPITALS. A permanent label or other identification must also be affixed to the back of each work and, if possible, to each piece of sculpture, giving the artist's name, title of work and price. Failure to comply with these requirements in full can lead to rejection of the work.
COLLECTION OF WORK
Pre-selected work not hung in the exhibition: Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 July, 10am – 4.30pm.
Unsold work after the exhibition closes: Friday 2 & Saturday 3 September 2016, 10-4.30pm.
No work, once placed, can be removed until the close of the Exhibition without a special order from the Council. We do not have any storage at the RSA so the artist must have their work uplifted on the dates given. Any works not collected will incur a storage fee to be paid by the artist. After 2 weeks the work will become property of the RSA and may subsequently be disposed of. By completing the online registration process, the artist accepts this condition as a binding agreement whereby ownership of the uncollected works is relinquished by him/her and transferred absolutely to the RSA.”
