About Juried Exhibits Dependent on the juror’s decision, an artist may find that all, some, or possibly none of their pieces are chosen to be a part of the exhibition. Framations strives to promote excellent exhibitions that are juried to fit the exhibit space but also display the best quality work chosen from what is entered.

Discounts In appreciation to the artists who make our exhibits possible, artists who are juried into an exhibit will receive a 20% discount off both gallery purchases and framing while their work is on display. If an artist’s work receives the People’s Choice award, the discount is extended for the length their work is on display. We thank you for being an active part of the Arts in St. Charles! Promotional Information Framations reserves the right to photograph all exhibited works for use on our website, email announcement for the exhibit and for use in press releases and exhibition promotions.

Liability and Insurance While reasonable precautions are taken to safeguard entries, Framations does not insure work submitted to the gallery for Exhibitions and is not responsible for loss or damage to any work submitted while on display or in transit. Artists are strongly encouraged to insure their own artwork.
