All work must be for sale, and no work may be removed for the duration of the show. While the utmost care will be taken in handling all works, NAC, its directors and agents assume no liability for damage, loss or theft. All artists are responsible for insuring their own work.

NAC reserves the right to exclude entries that are neither in the spirit of the exhibition or of a quality consistent with the exhibition’s intent. Unclaimed works will be disposed of at the discretion of NAC. For works that cannot be picked up at the designated times, please call the gallery in advance (860-887-2789). NAC reserves the right to publish photos of submitted works for use in publicity, including use on its web page. NAC retains 30% on all sales.
