GLOUCESTER GALLERY EXHIBITION POLICY

The exhibition program at Gloucester Gallery is an important part of our objective to promote Australian contemporary art & craft artists in rural regional Australia.

The exhibition program is planned one to two years in advance. Proposals are invited from individual artists, groups of artists or other galleries or cultural institutions and are viewed by the Exhibition Committee which meets once a month. 

The Exhibition Committee aims to present a varied exhibition program reflecting:

  • diverse media and disciplines in the crafts and contemporary design
  • local as well as interstate and international artists
  • work by individual artists or groups of artists
  • significant relevant state and national touring exhibitions
  • excellent work with regard to artistic merit and presentation
  • exploration of contemporary issues
  • personal expression

The exhibition space is available for a period of four weeks, with two days allowed for setting up and 1 day for dismantling within that period. Exhibition openings, if they are held, on Friday evening or Saturday afternoon or evening.

Exhibition proposals for Gloucester Gallery should include:

  • Current address and contact details of the proposing artist or coordinator
  • Short biography or curriculum vitae of artist or artists involved.
  • Short description of the concept, ideas or objects to be exhibited which includes how the proposal addresses some or all of the concept.

The exhibitor appoints the gallery as agent for the purpose of exhibition and sale of consigned works for the above period of exhibition. This appointment only applies to the works consigned and does not make the gallery a general agent for the artist or any works not so consigned.

The exhibitor agrees to provide to the Gallery a full list of the items to be exhibited and to inform the Gallery of any additional works added during the exhibition period.

The responsibility for the cost of packing, insurance and transport to and from the gallery will be borne by the artist/s, as will the packing, delivery and insurance of works sold at the exhibition.

 

The exhibition will be on view and the gallery open between 10.00 am and 4.00 pm Tuesday to Saturday and between 10.00am and 1.00pm Sunday. It is imperative that these hours are adhered to.  The gallery may be opened by arrangement only, at any other time by the exhibitor, who will otherwise have access to the gallery for the duration of the exhibition.

While all efforts will be made to carry out maintenance works between exhibitions, the exhibitor may be requested to allow access to the Gallery for any repairs and maintenance required on any day during their exhibition period. This may entail closure of the Gallery to the public, in which case the Gallery Director will notify the exhibitor as early as possible of the day, time and duration of the interruption and accompany the tradesperson if artwork is in place. Your understanding in this matter is appreciated.

All works must be collected by midday on the Monday immediately following the last day of the exhibition.

The Gloucester Gallery will accept no responsibility for loss or damage or theft of exhibited works for the period of the exhibition.

The exhibitor is responsible for his/her/their own insurance and that while the Gallery will take all reasonable care in the handing and display of the works, the works are exhibited at my own risk.  

The Gloucester Gallery, in consultation with the Gloucester Arts and Cultural Council, retains the right to exclude any person or persons from the use of the Gloucester Gallery.

Exhibiting artist/s are responsible for the cleaning and professional presentation of the gallery except in the case of volunteers/members supervising the exhibition, in which case those on the supervision roster will take responsibility.
