Objects on loan to art6 for this exhibit must remain available for exhibit for the agreed period of the loan. However, they may be replaced with mutually determined items in the event of a sale that cannot wait the end date. Art6 currently maintains a limited insurance policy for objects placed in its facility and under its care. This is not a wall-to-wall policy, so artists are encouraged to cover their work under their own policy as well. All works must be fully prepared for professional presentation. Flaws in construction or presentation (such as objects with inherent vice in their materials or lacking in stability) may not be covered under the gallery policy.
Such planning and craftsmanship is understood as the responsibility of the artist. Also not covered are incidents beyond the gallery’s control, such as extreme weather, building construction flaws, or acts of riot and vandalism.
art6 Gallery receives a 30% commission for all sales during and resulting from this exhibition. If you wish to donate more than 30% of your sales price to the gallery, please indicate the amount. ________%
