Additional information for the small art board:

-Pieces for the small art board MUST be 5x7 or less, total size. Measure your frames to make sure they don't exceed 5x7. If the piece is 5x7 you'll need a front loading frame, which are the best suited frames for the board anyhow. You can get them at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Walmart, etc. All art must be able to hang comfortably on a pushpin.

-pieces do not have to fit the theme but bonus points if they do!

-Just like everything else at Dandy, pieces must be family-friendly.

-Total price must be $40 or less. 25% commission for dandy still applies.

-Submissions for the small board are separate from the submissions for the walls, meaning you can submit 3 pieces for the show and still submit for the board. Please submit no more than 3 pieces for the board, if accepted some may be kept as back ups if your other pieces sell. Both prints and originals are accepted.

-Please keep in mind that due to the location of the board within dandelion there is a certain amount of risk of pieces being knocked off by patrons. Several frames were broken during its initial run. We recommend using cheap frames that are fairly flat.
