1)  Work is due at the gallery Fri & Sat, Oct 27–28. (OK to bring in tiles Oct 24-26 if need be).

2)  Each Group of tiles will have one label adjacent to it in the gallery, so each Group should have a Title and Price that apply to all the tiles within the Group.

3)  Each tile within a Group will need a label with the following information:  your name, the title of the Group, the price of the tiles within the Group and  A, B, C, D, etc .   If  you wish to add a title for each tile, add that to the label as well.

4)  Place each Group of prepared tiles in a separate Box labeled with your name and title of the group.   Please make sure your tiles are packed so they will not be damaged.

5)  We will help you sign your work in.

  • Sand face and edges of tiles with fine sandpaper (320 grit recommended).
  • Seal face and edges of tiles with 3 thin coats of Gesso. Best to use a foam brush.  Sand lightly after each coat.
  • Your tile is now prepared for you to do artwork directly on the tile or adhere separately prepared artwork.
  • Any work done on paper, i.e. watercolors, drawings, photographs, etc. will need to be adhered to the tile with the appropriate adhesive/cement. Scotch Photo Mount works well for flat work, but work cannot be repositioned once down.  Ask art professionals for other options.
  • After your artwork is complete and if needed, adhered to the tile, place 2”square Velcro centered on the back (place within guidelines on back of tile).
  • Label the back of your tiles with your name and A, B, C, D, etc. so NVAL can place them in the order you wish.
