You are responsible for arranging your own insurance for your artwork. You must have Public Liability Insurance, and we advise that you arrange Exhibition Insurance for your work. Your household insurance may cover for theft so it is worth checking.

If you don’t have exhibition insurance we will ask you to sign a waiver to say you waive any right for payment or compensation for loss or damage to the artwork in the exhibition.

Below is an insurance provider below that covers both types of insurance: offers exhibition insurance and public liability insurance.

Artwork Specifications

  • Maximum size of 2D work is 60 x 90cm.
  • You can submit a piece of work in any medium including prints.
  • Frames used must be well-made and finished. Unframed canvases must be tidily finished around the edges. Hung works should have a hanging cord, attached with D-Rings, that cannot be seen when the picture is hung.
  • You must label your piece on the back (name of artist, title, price if for sale).

Important note:

This time, 2D work only will be exhibited at DINA, however we hope to have facilities to exhibit 3D work in the Christmas exhibition.

Pre-Show & Post-Show

If your application is successful, you will be emailed confirmation. (If unsuccessful, your hanging fee will be returned). Please bring proof of insurance with you when delivering. Your artwork will not be accepted otherwise. Open Up Sheffield will not be responsible for uncollected artwork and there is nowhere to store it.
