Consignment Agreement Between Artist And Gallery

Here are a few details to make sure your mailing report covers if it is not explicitly covered by an initial consignment agreement, or if there are changes for that consignment period. Exclusive: In some cases, you may include information about restrictions or expectations of representation. Some galleries, for example, will want to establish exclusivity in an artist`s representation or will have arrangements for artists with multiple gallery performances. It`s always up to you, as an artist, to decide what`s good for your career. You can also work with the gallery to set the time frame in which exclusivity takes place. However, the exclusivity of galleries in the digital age is changing, as artists have more opportunities than ever to sell their works. Here you will find models for a consignment contract. The mailing reports will help you and the gallery track what you have delivered, what has been sold and what needs to be returned. It is helpful for you and the gallery to keep a copy of the mailing report handy to ensure that all your work is taken into account (sold or returned to you). At WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties signed this agreement on the following date.

9. Insurance. Insurance for the full wholesale price should be provided by the gallery. The gallery is responsible for the franchise in its policy. The artist should have control of all repairs, if necessary. (For more information, check out the artists checklist: claims for damaged work.) Accounting for a unique work of art. For a type artwork with a sale price of $500 or more, the gallery provides the name, mailing address and telephone number of the client/collector who purchases the artwork. The artist undertakes not to contact the client to sell works of art directly to the client, and the gallery is informed or receives a copy of a communication between the artist and the client that relates to this work of art as long as the contract remains in effect.

Even in the best relationships of trust and a good working relationship, there is no substitute for a contract. In order to minimize potential conflicts and hopefully avoid them, the rights and obligations of the artist and the gallery should be clearly included in a contract. Don`t rely on assumptions and memories of verbal conversations. A good contract, such as the consignment contract developed by the Professional Guidelines Committee, is fair to both parties. It is in the interest of both parties to discuss all of the issues that have been presented here. The contract describes the responsibilities and rights of the gallery and the artist. 16. The duration and end of the shipment.

The artist and the gallery agree that the initial delivery time of the work of art will continue until the artist will not request the return of the work before that date, unless the agreement is violated by the gallery. Subsequently, the agreement will be maintained from one party to the other party until it has been terminated in writing. Within thirty days of the notice of termination, all accounts must be settled and all unsold artwork returned to the artist at the gallery`s expense. The contract automatically ends upon the artist`s death or if the gallery goes bankrupt or becomes insolvent or violates the contract. You can create a record report to work on each of your sites by clicking on the locations in the left menu. In the gallery or in the retailer for which you want to create a report, click the Grey Reports button and select The Send Report in the drop-down menu. If the restoration is proposed or continued by the gallery, the artist has a veto over the choice of the restorer. The artist is responsible for all repairs to works of art necessary by the artist`s defective treatment.
