The venue has approx 70m of wall space, a 290x45x157cm alcove and a 180x285cm installation/video room.
Based on 20 artists taking part, there will be 3-4 metres of wall space each
£50 per metre of wall space for 2D works
£50 per sculpture (negotiable depending on size and amount)
FPS commission: 30% + VAT
All framed works must be of high quality and contemporary in style (no gold gilt frames etc unless absolutely necessary please)
All works must have D-rings (not mirror plates) as no drilling is permitted in gallery.
Stewarding the exhibition:
The exhibition will need invigilation throughout the week and opening times will be from 1- 7pm so we will need members to cover these sessions. A roster and invigilation details will be supplied nearer the time.
Only work that has been selected will be included in the show, although there will be provision for small unframed but mounted prints in plastic sleeves for the print racks.
Artist promotion material:
Can I please encourage all artists to get business cards and postcards printed and individual artist’s catalogues can be sold (cash only).
Although great care will be taken of the work and Liability insurance will be provided by FPS for the show, artists are encouraged to have their own personal artwork insurance –
A good way of doing this would be to subscribe to A-N magazine who provide this as part of their subscription fee. (http://www.a-n.co.uk/)
The show will be hung by our usual hanger George Spencer and the exhibitions team.
Once the hanging is agreed, the exhibition as a whole is the responsibility of the gallery curators until the work is due to come down. Any changes or alterations for the duration of the exhibition are the responsibility of the curator.
