Pictures for hanging and craft items need a card ‘parcel label’ on string to be attached to each picture to be hung,
the string to be long enough to bring the label to the front of the item so it can be easily identified for labelling purposes.  

The label should read:

                                  Artist Name

                                  Title of Work


                                   Price £


All artwork must be original inspiration and not created under instruction. 




Although every care will be taken neither BAS or DLWP are responsible for any loss or damage to your work and you are advised to take out your own insurance cover.  This is normal policy with large art galleries. 



No copies of other artists work, use of other photographer’s photos or stills taken from films without acknowledgement
and /or permission.



Whilst the committee want all members to be able to exhibit, hanging space is limited and therefore the hanging committee cannot guarantee to hang all work and their decision is final.  


Sold Items 

Sold items may be removed from the wall if the buyer is unable to collect on the Monday. If an item is removed, the artist may be given an opportunity to bring a replacement item of the same size to the Exhibition.



All artwork may be subject to refusal if deemed by the exhibition committee to be unsuitable in presentation, content, price or size. 



20% on all sales will be deducted by the Society.  Net sale price will be paid to the member by BACS transfer directly to your bank account.
