Artwork must be dry, and where applicable, sealed to prevent smudging.
Various kinds of fixatives to seal art are available at Curry's Artist Supplies in Waterloo.

All two dimensional works must be prepared for hanging using a strong, secure wire system to hang on a hook. Work needs to be professionally presented.  Matting and/or framing can definitely provide a very polished look. In some cases alternative presentation techniques can be very pleasing.

Some artwork requires proper supports/ plinths for three dimensional works.
