There is limited storage space for the gallery; therefore all work must be removed from the gallery promptly at the end of each exhibition. Artwork designed to be exhibited on a wall must be able to be displayed from a hanging rail. Nothing may be affixed directly to, on or through the wall. If needed, the exhibitor must furnish pedestals and plinths for 3-D work.
