Artworks displayed in the Virtual Show will also attract an acceptance fee, in addition to the submission/entry fee. If work is only entered in the Virtual Show, this fee is $5 per artwork (any size).

If however, the same painting has been accepted in the Physical Art Show, then a further acceptance fee will not apply.

All accepted works will be displayed.

The acceptance fee is not refundable.

Artists will be notified by email when their work has been accepted for hanging or display. Please ensure that your correct details are registered with Gallery 247.


Exhibits must be on durable material, and made ready for hanging (fitted with substantial hanging wire or heavy duty cord).   Flush D Hangers are those which do not protrude when paintings are stored.  Eye hooks are not acceptable as these can cause damage to other works.   Oil/acrylic paintings on canvas unframed but ready for hanging will be accepted.   


Identifying labels, supplied by the Art Show organisers, must be affixed securely to the rear of the art work.

Additional Works

Individual artists may, at the discretion of the Organisers, be invited to supply more than the maximum number.
