ONTARIO OPEN COMMITTEE SELECTIONS FINAL
The Ontario Open Committee reserves the right to determine whether a particular artwork will be exhibited. Due to the high volume of artwork and gallery space limitations, the exhibition is limited to 75 artists. It is possible that not all entries will be displayed in the Ontario Open Art Exhibition. In the case of this event, the artist will be contacted and the artist must pick-up the corresponding artwork. Entry fees will not be refunded. The artwork included in the exhibition will be on display until the close of the exhibition. Artworks will be released following the close of the exhibition by appointment.
ONSITE SALES OF ARTWORK
Onsite sales of artwork is not an objective of the Ontario Open Art exhibition. The Ontario Museum of History & Art is a department of the City of Ontario, Community Life and Cutlure Agency, and is not a commercial gallery. The purpose of the exhibit is to provide opportunities for artists of the region to exhibit artwork for the benefit of the City of Ontario and the Museum’s regional audience. The Museum will not represent artists, provide sales prices, or receive commissions for artwork transactions. Sales may not be conducted on the Museum property. The Museum will provide a public space to display artists’ business-style cards. This way, visitor queries will go directly to the artist.
Artwork left unclaimed after the scheduled pick-up will undergo Museum abandonment procedures. The Museum will attempt to contact or negotiate the objects return to the lender. In the event, the lender fails to claim a loan, after repeated attempts by the Museum to contact them, the loaned items may be subject to the State of California’s Unclaimed Loan law, California Civil Code Section 1500 et seq., and/or the provisions of California Civil Code Section 1899 et seq.
