polka dots are combined, with intense color, creating ROOMS

mirror the spirit Jan hopes to reflect. Jan has been painting
all her life. She was a mural artist for 15 years or more

Guidelines - Criteria for Jurying-in new members
FALC has been fortunate this year to welcome
many new members and we can look forward to many others being
interested in joining our club. One of the questions that
we get asked the most from current members and those who are
interested in joining is about our criteria for acceptance.
Our process is clear and simple. Anyone who wants to join
needs to bring three pieces of art to one of our meetings.
The members present at that meeting will vote, and if a 2/3
majority of people approve, that person will be accepted,
pay their dues, and become an exhibiting member.
As a juried club, FALC strives to maintain a
certain standard of proficiency since organizations that invite
us to exhibit assume a certain selectivity. One rule of thumb
commonly used when voting in new members is to ask yourself
this question - Would I like to exhibit with this work? Would
this new work add to the reputation of the club? Just as we
support each other by bringing our best work to shows and
by providing new, fresh work for the painting changes at Quinlan,
we can use our Artists' eyes to make decisions about what
work will be hanging beside us at the next show.
Voting "no" during the jurying-in process does
not bar an artist from joining the club. The artist can still
be a member, just not an "exhibiting member". Non-exhibiting
members can attend demos and meetings that provide an environment
for their art to grow. As they continue to develop their skills,
they are welcome to jury in at a later date.
Guidelines - Copyrighted material
The laws regarding copyrighted
material are complex and not uniform from state to state. In
order to avoid liability and the burden of determining whether
a particular image involves copyright infringement, FALC has
created the following guidelines for member artists. FALC assumes
that it is the respoinsibility of the artist to honestly follow
these guidelines and assumes no liability for work that is submitted
or displayed not following these guidelines. It reserves the
right to disqualify a painting if there is reasonable doubt
about copyright infringement or plagiarism.
- Work entered for a show must be the
artist's original work in concept and execution.
- It cannot be copied from copyrighted
material or photographs belonging to another person or organizaion
except with the copyright holder's explicit written permission.
- It cannot be the reproduction of
a painting done by another person even if the original artist
is acknowledged on the painting.
- It cannot be the reproduction of
a historic painting.
