DIVISION I
PORCELAIN ART EXHIBIT RULES

(Sponsored by The Rome Area Porcelain Art Guild, Leona Clements Chapter)

ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED THE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2nd, FROM 10 A.M. UNTIL 2 P.M. EXHIBITORS SHOULD PICK UP THEIR WORK ON SUNDAY OCTOBER 9th FROM 12:30 P.M. TO 3:30 P.M.

Exhibitors may enter a maximum of two entries in any one class as long as each entry is different, e.g. in “Naturalistic” one could enter a tray and a vase with the same subject OR 2 vases with different subjects. A framed piece that consists of multiple pieces of china will be considered as one item and judged as a whole; the pieces in the framed piece should be like subject matter such as all naturalistic florals. All entries must be of porcelain, except where glass is indicated; stoneware mugs will be accepted; all other will be disqualified. Decal work will also be disqualified.

Entries must be the personal work of the exhibitor and must have a fired signature for competition. Where sets are entered, each piece must have fired signature. “Sets” are considered as one entry and must be a set such as a tea set, etc., not just more of the same. No “Seminar” pieces can be entered.

Exhibitor’s signature must be neatly concealed for judging. Each entry must be securely fastened together. Any shape, any size; in all categories unless otherwise stated. Display stands will be furnished by the Guild.

Entries can be entered only one time for competition and should have been painted within the last year. Every precaution will be taken to protect exhibits, but no responsibility will be assumed by The Coosa Valley Fair Association or the Porcelain Art Guild, Leona Clements Chapter, for damage or theft.

If necessary, the Fair Chairman, designated by the Porcelain Art Guild, reserves the right to create a class (subclass) with the approval of The Coosa Valley Fair Association. Only judges, clerks, fair chairman and elected officers of the Porcelain Art Guild will be allowed in the exhibition area during acceptance of entries, judging and dismantling. The Clerk, if possible, will be the ‘Best in Show’ winner from the previous year since this Honoree will have a display of her work rather than entering the competition.

THE EXHIBITOR IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DECIDING WHICH CLASS AN ENTRY IS TO BE PLACED IN; ENTRIES WILL NOT BE CHANGED FROM THE CLASS THAT WAS SPECIFIED BY THE EXHIBITOR.


Judging Criteria for China:

Points

Design: Suitability, balance, focal point, originality and proportion: 45 points

Technique: Quality of application perspective, light and shadow: 30 points

Color: Clarity, harmony, contrast and value: 15 points

Firing: 10 points

All decisions of the judges will be final. If there is only one entry in a class or lot, that item must be judged. Judges have the right to award one or more Honorable Mention Awards.

Best in Section will awarded to each exhibitor in Sections II, III and IV scoring the highest number of points in any class of that section. ‘Best In Section’ is awarded a ribbon and $25.

Best in Show Award will be selected from the “Best in Section” pieces and the winning entries in Section V. “Best In Show” is awarded a ribbon and $35.

The 1st Place winner of the “Florals 10 in and over” will receive The Joyce Nolen Award ribbon.  This award money ($35) going to the Porcelain Art Guild, Leona Clements Chapter.

The 1st Place winner of the “Florals Under 10 in” will receive The Daisy Henderson Award ribbon.  This award money ($35) going to the Porcelain Art Guild, Leona Clements Chapter.
