RULES FOR THE EXHIBITION:
An online exhibition takes a long time to prepare. The webmaster cannot receive all the works beyond the deadline.
When we are aiming at a date to launch the event, it means working on the site 12 hours a day with mails going between artists who have not given the right information etc..
For this reason, we are establishing the following rules:
-Artists must be prepared to receive an invitation for a Spring Exhibition in the month of March.
- A short deadline will be given.
- The site getting bigger with artists joining (aiming for 100), there will no longer a reminder.
- If an artist has forgotten to send a Work, he or she will not have a place in the exhibition.
To submit for exhibition: We request:
- A very good photo of your work with no edges, no frame, 600 pixels on the largest side.
(A larger picture can be sent but will be reduced for the site.)
Title, medium, size most be included.
For Sale or Not For Sale or Sold can be added. If it is For Sale, a Link will take prospective buyers to the Contact page of your website.
- A photo of yourself

We do understand and do everything in our power to protect the Copyright of all posted works.
We all know that once a painting is on the internet, it becomes less protected than being in a cupboard!
This is the reason why we are asking for an image of 600 pixels on the largest side.
Our site is protected such as you can not save a picture with right click. If for some reasons someone was hoping to print your work, it would be of very little use, the pixels being minimal.
If you are worried and do not wish to share your work, we fully understand. We will remove the work, the page of the artist.
This means that you agree while joining this site, Grandmasters of Fine Art cannot be held responsible for infringement of Copyright.
Grandmaster of Fine Art aims for 100 artists. The Title of the site will become:
ONE HUNDRED CONTEMPORARY GRANDMASTERS OF FINE ART.
There will be no further subscription unless one member drops.
