Framing Info: 

All 2d artwork, that is work that should be hung on the wall, should be submitted in frames with a hanging wire in the back.  

If you are not able to find a frame for your artwork the gallery can loan you a frame for the duration of the exhibition, however the artwork should be sized to fit into the following matboard sizes for our frames, meaning the artwork is at least a half inch LARGER than these sizes so they will fit behind the matboard:

6 x 5.5 in to 8 x 6 in

12.5 x 9.5 in to 15 x 10 in

8.5 x 9.5 in to 13.5 x 11 in

14 x 10 in to 15 x 10 in

15 x 11.5 in to 16 x 12 in

18 x 12 in to 21 x 17 in

If you have larger work you will need to provide your own matboard & frame. If you have questions please reach out to meghan.trainor@seattlecolleges.edu
