Rules/Regulations
RULES AND STANDARDS
 
In an effort to provide the highest quality show possible, all art work exhibited must be original work, done by the artist. NO work from molds, kits or commercial methods is allowed.
 
    * Reproductions: Artists juried in the painting/ drawing categories will be allowed to sell reproductions of their original work in limited, signed and numbered editions. Editions of a single work may not exceed 250. Reproductions must be archival, the same size or smaller than the original work, be matted but not framed and displayed in a clearly marked print bin no larger than 18"x48". The Fair committee requires each artist to provide them with a detailed description of their reproduction process. All reproduction bins must be clearly marked. Only one reproduction bin per 10'x10' booth space will be allowed. This will be strictly enforced.
    * If you handcraft the plates, stone or screen, the printed result is considered an Original Multiple, to be properly registered, signed and numbered. Editions of a single work must not exceed 250 and must be signed and numbered by the artist.
    * Photographers shall make prints from the original negatives, processed by themselves. All photographs must be signed and numbered by the artist in limited edition, not to exceed 250.
    * All paintings, watercolors, drawings, prints and photographs must be framed or matted and displayed in suitable portfolio or stand.
    * Functional ceramics is considered a "fine craft", therefore multiples of essentially the same items such as bowls, cups, plates and tiles may be exhibited.
    * Jewelers shall not use any commercially fabricated forms or settings. Only artists accepted in the jewelry category may display and sell jewelry.
    * Leatherworks shall not be crafted using machine tooling, machine-screened patterns or other forms of mass production.
    * Artists must represent their own work and be present the entire four days of the Fair. No agents allowed.  This means you can only exhibit in one of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs.
