Submission Procedure
Submission is by online entry only. Please click on the link from our website and follow the instructions
Work selected for exhibition will be expected to be for sale. Commission is charged by the gallery. It will be assumed that the sale price includes the cost of any frame and our commission. Please allow for these points when pricing your work. Prices should include VAT if applicable. If you are VAT registered, please provide a VAT number in the box provided. 

All communication will be by email or via the online login process. Applicants will be required to login to see if they have been preselected and will be asked to download and print their application details to be delivered with the artwork. Failure to do so could result in work being withdrawn from the exhibition. 

The Selection Committee will select the works for the exhibition. The Selectors will consider all correctly completed submissions. The decision of the Selectors on all matters is final and no correspondence will be entered into.  Works accepted through the on-line system will be required to go through a 2nd selection once in the gallery.

Hanging Fee
Please note there is an additional £20 hanging fee if work is accepted.

Artists are responsible for insuring their own work. All works accepted for exhibition will be displayed entirely at the artists' risk and organisers and the gallery will not accept liability for loss or damage occurring during the exhibition.

Delivery and Collection
Artists are responsible for the delivery and collection of their work at the Gallery. All packaging materials must be removed after delivery (no gallery storage is available for this) and brought back at collection. If you are applying from overseas, please consider how you will get your work to and from the exhibition at the required times – this is the artists responsibility.
Work not collected at the stated times will be subject to a daily charge of £10 and will be disposed of after one week.
