Security/Parking:  As of March 2015, all security in the Administration & Records Building which houses the Atrium Gallery has been assumed by the Morris County Sheriff’s Office. All entries to the building must be through the main building entrance (and metal detectors) at 10 Court Street, Morristown. The Sheriff’s office is aware of the dates and times for installation and takedown and will provide free parking for artists to deliver or collect their artworks.  The reserved parking places (diagonal on left) will be coned off on Court Street – just move the cone aside in order to park in a spot and replace it when you are done.  If the weather is raining, you might want to bring a tarp to cover works until you get them into the building.

Staging area/ dollies in Room 526 (on the 5th floor) serves as a ‘staging area’ and the place where you can pick up dollies for use in transporting artwork to your floor. There are also likely to be extra hanging rods/hooks in a corner in that room.  (Please return the dollies to 526 when you are done using them). Also, please leave any unused rods in that room at the end of the day.

Sales/Commissions:  Since this is a county gallery, there are NO commissions taken for any sale. It is expected that works remain for the duration of the show and that any sold work is picked up once the show is done. 

Removal of art:  Please do NOT remove any artwork until the takedown date. It is understood that by agreeing to exhibit in this show, you agree to having the art remain in place for the duration of the show.

Labelling works:  White, easily removable labels are available free of charge for your use at the office of the County Administrator (5th floor)…The County requests that we only use their peelable labels so no residue is left on the walls.  Please use the labels to number each work that you hang, then make a note for yourself as to what number goes with what work. (You don’t have to prepare full labels with title, etc. since the numbers will coordinate with all the information on each work in the catalogue listing). You might find it helpful to bring along pad and pencil for the purpose of recording your list of works. (This is important for accurate listing in the catalogue)

Frame pads to cushion walls:  The County also requests that you place small pads on the backs of the frames so they don’t scratch the newly painted walls. These are provided free at the County Administrator’s office...ask for Christine Kristiansen.

Refreshments for Opening Reception:  We ask the artists’ groups to coordinate with one another and bring an assortment of food/beverage – to be made available for reception attendees – in the Cafeteria on the 4th floor. Since this is a County facility, no alcoholic beverages may be served. The County does provide coffee, tea, cream and sugar....and cups for same – again in the county cafeteria.

Also on the night of the reception, nametags will be available for all of the participating artists available up in the “seating area” on the 5th floor...just come by and pick up your tag – so the public will be able to identify the artists from the viewers (and mob you with questions about your works!).
