You must collect your unsold pictures from the Millennium Gallery, on Sunday evening, 19th November, between 5.30pm and 6.30pm, or by prior arrangement on Monday 20th November from the activity room at the Millennium Gallery.
Pictures cannot be collected when the Show closes at 4pm, as this is the time when buyers collect their purchased pictures. There is strictly no admission for artists at this time.
You will need to show your Exhibitor List, as we will check off the pictures you take against it.
You must bring selected pictures, together with your Exhibitor’s List to the Surrey Street Entrance of the Millennium Gallery, S1 2LH, on Thursday 16th November between 6pm and 8pm.
Your Exhibitor List is your authority to exhibit, and will be used as your receipt when collecting pictures after the Show. Keep it carefully as no pictures can be accepted or returned without it.
If you sell a picture you will pay a commission of 30% of the sale price. The income from commission is an important source of the funds needed to run the exhibition. We therefore set a minimum selling price of £40 on all works at the Show.
We will send you a cheque for the sale price, less the commission, by post after
the Show, or if you can provide your bank details we will pay direct in to your account.
