RAC Policies:
• Photographs of artwork may be used for publicity for the exhibitions. Please take a photo of your work before it is under glass to ensure that the photo does justice to it. It is extremely hard to take good photos of work in the gallery conditions, particularly when it is under glass. You retain all rights to your work.

• Chairperson’s discretion: the chairperson may refuse any entry on the grounds or poor condition, oversize or unsuitability.
• Sales: All artwork must be for sale. RAC will collect a commission of 30% on all sales.
• Liability: Entries will be handled with all possible care, but artists submitting work agree to hold harmless the Rowayton Arts Center, their agents and employees from any claim of damage or theft that might arise from any cause whatsoever. Artists should arrange for proper insurance coverage for their work. Entry to the show constitutes agreement with all of the conditions stated above.
• Waiver for Pictures Taken/Used: We document each RAC exhibition/show with photographs. Entry into an exhibition/show at the Rowayton Arts Center constitutes permission to photograph you and/or your artwork, and to use an image of your artwork in promotional materials for the exhibition and for the Rowayton Arts Center.
If you have any questions, please call the Rowayton Arts Center (203) 866-2744 for clarification in advance.
