NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing and mutual promises contained herein, the parties further agree as follows:
Delivery and pickup of work by Artist. Artists who have been juried into the Gallery may bring their work into the Gallery during regular business hours at any time to add to or replace their inventory, and may, subject to paragraph two (2) below, continue to submit work for as long as they are a Core member or General Member in good standing. The Gallery may ask the Artist to come into the Gallery to refresh his/her inventory and to rectify inventory records. If an Artist does not bring any new works for two years, the Gallery is not required to consider future submissions by the Artist. The Artist shall be responsible for delivery and pick-up of works to and from the Gallery with all works delivered properly prepared for display and each piece containing a title or number for clear identification.
Acceptance and inventory of Artist's work. The Artist shall enter information on the Artist’s Gallery Inventory Record form for each piece of work on consignment. Information entered shall include the assigned Artist number, category code, artwork description (including the medium), retail price, and date delivered to the Gallery. The Gallery shall provide an inventory number for each accepted piece and record sales on the inventory form. The Gallery shall have the prerogative to reject individual pieces due to lack of space, unacceptable quality or presentation of work, or because of any radical change in the Artist's work or style. Major changes in the Artist’s work or style shall be juried in.
Display of Artist's work. Artist’s work shall remain at the Gallery for at least 30 days following drop-off. The Gallery may display Artist's work in the manner Gallery deems appropriate. If more work is accepted for display and sale than space will allow, the excess may be held on Gallery premises. Work so held will be exchanged with displayed work on a regular basis at Gallery’s discretion. If, after 30 days, Artist withdraws work from the Gallery for any reason, the “Date Out” for each item shall be recorded on the Artist’s Gallery Inventory Record.
Discretion. An exhibit may be terminated and/or individual works may be withdrawn from display at any time at the discretion of the Gallery. Gallery reserves the right to exercise discretion with respect to display of art.
Sale of Artist's work. Artist authorizes Gallery to sell Artist's work and arrange the terms of such sale. No discounts shall be permitted except by the specific permission of the Artist.
Shipping: Shipping costs will be charged to the buyer, by invoice sent by the Gallery. Artwork will be packed and shipped by the Artist.
Payment to Artist. Amounts due to the Artist from Gallery sales shall be paid by the 15th of the next month following the sale. The date of sale and payment will be recorded on the Artist's inventory sheet. Any Gallery commission, credit card fee, and any shipping cost incurred by the Gallery will be subtracted from the sale price to determine the payment to the Artist.
Client referrals. If Artist business cards or brochures are available to distribute, the Gallery will furnish that information to interested persons. Otherwise, no contact information will be given out.
Withdrawal of work at Gallery's request. If a work is not sold within six months after it is received by the Gallery or if the Gallery otherwise determines that a work should be withdrawn, the Gallery may notify the Artist to remove that work. If the Artist has not removed the work within 30 days following the date such notice was given, the Gallery shall not be liable for subsequent loss or damage to such work.
Insurance. Gallery carries liability insurance only, and cannot insure against all potential hazards which may cause damage to Artist's work.
Artist Profile and current address. The Artist shall provide to the Gallery a current Artist Profile and shall keep it up-to- date for as long as he/she continues to display work at the Gallery. The Artist shall also provide a current mailing address, email address and phone number to the Gallery and provide updates within 10 days of any change.
Reproduction of work. The Artist reserves all rights to the reproduction of works in any manner. This restriction shall be indicated by the Gallery in writing on all sales invoices and memoranda. However, the Artist consents to exhibits of artwork being photographed by the Gallery for educational and promotional purposes.
Right to sell at other locations. The Artist reserves the right to sell works at other locations, including her/his own studio, but will maintain the fair market value of the artwork.
Termination. Either party may terminate this agreement at any time. Upon termination it is Artist’s responsibility to remove her/his artwork in a timely manner. All monies due the Artist will be paid according to the schedule detailed above.
Successors. This agreement shall be binding on the heirs, personal representatives, successors, and assigns of the Artist

Submitting Artwork Guidelines
GALLERY 15 76 East Washington Street, Burns, Oregon 97720
Guidelines for Members Submitting Artwork to the Gallery
Item I. General guidelines: When submitting artwork for installation, hanging, or display at Gallery 15, the following procedures shall be followed:
The artwork submitted needs to be the original, creative work of the consigning artist and be presented in a professional manner, ready to be displayed.
Artwork that would be considered "seconds" will not be accepted.
Artwork should not exceed 50 lbs. or 72" in height without prior arrangements.
Item II. Guidelines for 3-dimensional artwork include:
Commercial molds or kits will not be accepted.
The Jury Committee will consider accepting the use of commercially molded pieces which become part of a larger piece of artwork. Examples include artwork that uses recycled materials or "combinations" of various found objects along with commercially molded pieces incorporated into an original work.
Fiber arts, ceramics, jewelry, books, and other types of 3-dimensional non-hanging artwork shall adhere to the requirements of Item I, above.
Item III. Guidelines for 2-dimensional or hanging artwork include:
It is the responsibility of the artist to insure that all hanging pieces have heavy duty hanging hardware so the artwork will remain secure when hung. No saw tooth hangers shall be used without approval. The Gallery will not be held liable for damage due to ineffective or inappropriate use of hardware.
Artwork rendered in watercolor, pen and ink, pastel, gouache or graphite as well as photography should be matted and framed under glass. Unframed work needs to be approved before hanging and will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis respecting the hanging requirements of the gallery. Acceptable unframed canvases include gallery wraps, where the canvas is stretched around the support and secured at the back. Staples should not be evident when hung.
Mats should be clean cut at corners, not warped, free of smudges, spills, stains, foxing, bugs, or cutting crumbs.
Frames should be free of scratches and nicks. If a frame is nicked or scratched, it must be filled and painted over to repair. Liners should be free of stains, with corners squared and joined edges secure. Saw tooth hangers will not be accepted unless specifically approved.
Glass should be free of corner fractures, clear of finger prints, smudges, etc., both inside and out.
Wire and screw eyes should be of sufficient strength to handle the weight of the artwork, with a double wrap taken around the screw eyes to secure. Wire ends should be wrapped with strapping or masking tape to avoid injury to handlers.
Prints to be placed in bins should be encased in protective plastic bags, not shrink wrapped, as it deteriorates and can damage mats and artwork.
