*The LAC strives to provide exhibition opportunities for all artists however, on some occasions select exhibits are juried or due to the volume of entries received all works are not able to be included on display. Artwork that is not properly wired for hanging may be modified or discluded from the exhibit. Submission fees assist to cover exhibition and programming development, administration and clerical work, storage and moving, as well as jury selection and curatorial work involved in preparing exhibitions. All submission fees are non-refundable. The LAC/SEAA reserves the right in its sole discretion to disclude any work it feels does not meet the exhibition eligibility criteria, size accommodations or any work it feels is inappropriate for all audience and could otherwise be considered offensive or overly sexualized in nature.
