a locked display cabinet. If artwork will require any unusual display protocol it is the responsibility of the artist to provide these items.
Due to the nature of the gallery’s ceiling structure we are unable to hang artwork from the ceiling. The gallery uses the Walker Display system for artwork hung on our walls. We are not able to affix artwork to the wall with nails or screws. If you have any unusual hanging requirements you must contact Fine Line in advance of delivering your work.
