Only work broken by customers or OPA members or volunteers during sales, wrapping, gallery set-up, or other official capacity, are eligible for reimbursement.
OPA does NOT carry insurance for broken or damaged work. All payments for broken or damaged work come from Ceramic Showcase income. Ceramic work must be able to withstand normal handling, and your booth must be designed and built for stability. If it is determined by the Steering Committee that the design or construction of the work is the cause of the damage, or that the artist’s booth furniture is inadequate or poorly constructed, reimbursement will be denied.
Artists are responsible for ensuring that hanging pieces are constructed to adequately handle the weight of the work and the artist must provide proper documentation that the correct line weight has been used.
