Hayloft Gallery Artist General Policies
To aid in the facility of hanging shows, the Gallery Committee has established a scheduled time for the removal and arrival of artwork, and the policies listed below.
- Pick-up and Drop-off times are announced in the application, other times must be pre-arranged with The Floyd Center for the Arts staff. A volunteer committee member will be present at the Floyd Center to take down and document work being picked up by the artist as well as receive, document and store incoming new work.
- All work must have its own identification (title and artist) securely fastened on the back of each piece.
- Each piece will be entered and initialed with the date received on the inventory form. Verify the inventory information. Labels (Title, Artist name, Medium and Price) will be printed directly from this form. Items not priced will be labeled NFS.
- All work must be ready to display. Two-dimensional work must be matted, framed and wired, ready to hang. (Off the rack frames with built-in hangers usually do not work with our system.) We provide pedestals for three-dimensional work. We have a small jewelry display case, but we do not have display forms for jewelry.
- Artist statements or artwork explanations may be submitted via email to email@example.com or included with applications on disc with digital images. Small digital images, if available, will be printed next to the artist statements.
- Sales: A commission of 30% for members or 40% for non-members will be charged for all gallery sales. Sales tax will be collected and paid by the Floyd Center for the Arts.
- It is preferable that work purchased during an exhibit remain until the show is taken down, however there are exceptions. If the purchaser is from a distance and cannot pick up the work at a later time and the shipping of such work is difficult and/or costly, then the work may be removed. The Gallery committee will be responsible for replacing the work or rearranging the exhibit to fill the space.
- Prints or copies of originals sold by the artist as a direct result of the exhibit are also subject to commission. We rely on the artist to report and pay such commissions.
- While security is always a priority, The Floyd Center cannot be held liable for theft or damage to artwork accepted for display in the gallery and does not carry insurance on artwork. The Hayloft Gallery is locked during non business hours, however, artists are encouraged to personally insure their artworks for their own peace of mind.
