OPA - Oil Painters of America
Dedicated to the preservation of representational art
Congratulations on your acceptance into this year’s National Exhibition of Traditional Oils to be held at Reinert Fine Art, March 31 - April 30, 2023. Please read the following instructions closely as it includes important information regarding the exhibition.
Please include a return shipping label.
All artists who have been juried into the exhibition are required to fill out the uncrating form below.
Confirm Your Crating Method
Please fill out the online form below. If you are shipping under Option #1, please be prepared to pay the uncrating fee online.
If you are shipping your painting to Charleston in a non-commercial shipping container, there is a $25 uncrating fee which goes directly to Reinert Fine Art. The uncrating fee must be paid prior to the opening of the exhibition. PLEASE, NO PEANUTS OR CRATES!
If you are sending your artwork using a commercial art box, such as AirFloat, MasterPak, Uline, etc., you do not need to pay the uncrating fee. However, you are required to complete the form below. NOTE: Federal Express Premium Art Boxes are acceptable, but the Federal Express large frame box is not. Also, Home Depot boxes and homemade art boxes do not qualify under the uncrating fee exemption.
If you live in the Charleston area and plan on hand delivering your artwork to Reinert Fine Art you do not need to pay the uncrating fee provided that your painting does not require unpacking. OPA recommends you confirm with Reinert Fine Art a convenient time to drop off your painting before attempting to deliver your artwork.
OPA and Reinert Fine Art highly recommend you obtain insurance for your artwork while in transit. The shipping industry is experiencing staff shortages resulting in longer delivery times and less care taken with shipments. One option to consider, is ShipandInsure which offers OPA members insurance and discounts on Federal Express.
