Terms and Conditions
Terms and Conditions
- The Gallery has Public Liability insurance.
- The Gallery will not insure individual artist’s work. Artists may arrange insurance for their own work or leave work in the Gallery at their own risk.
- Artists should exhibit their own original work and be the sole author and owner of the copyright. Any reference works by another artist or photographer will need permission from the copyright owner and proof of permission should be available, if required. The Gallery accepts no liability in respect of unlawfully reproduced art.
- The artist understands that the Gallery itself will not be manned all the time. Art sales and enquiries on these occasions will be taken by the staff in the adjoining Tea Room, which will be open during retail times whenever possible.
- Artists may hang their own displays if they choose and picture hooks will be supplied.
- Work left for the Gallery to hang should be strung or have a suitable hook on the back otherwise a small charge of £2 per item, for time and materials used, will be made to provide this.
- Artists should either label each piece work with a title, their name, price and any other relevant details or pass on the same information to the Gallery who will then label the work on their behalf.
- The artist agrees to remove their work promptly at the end of the agreed rental period. If the wall space is needed before you can do this then it may be taken down and stored safely until collection.
- For items of work accepted on a ‘20% commission’ basis there is also an initial small monthly displaying fee. Monthly rates for paintings are based on framed diagonal length and are as follows: Less than 18"/45cm = £1. Greater than 24"/60cm = £2. All sizes in between = £1.50. For any other item, suitable rates based on size will be applied and discussed beforehand. This displaying fee is refunded if the work is sold during the rental period.
- After any rental period, you must collect any unsold work promptly due to shortage of storage space.
- Artists should inform the Gallery if there is any flexibility on the displayed price and what those conditions are.
- Artists may provide a brief biography about themselves and their work. It should fit within the size of 6 by 4 inch typed text. If a digital image of one of the exhibits and a biography is provided then permission needs to be given if the artist wishes the Gallery to use this to promote their work via Facebook, the Gallery website or as part of other advertising.
