General:

The end bay in the upper gallery at Galleryat12 is available, at the discretion of the members, for individual artists or small groups to rent. The upper gallery is about 30ft long by 12ft wide with a barrel roof which reduces ceiling height in some areas to 5ft at one side. The end bay is 10ft long by 12ft wide and is suitable for displaying both wall hung, plinth mounted and free standing items

Promoting and advertising the exhibition.

  • The gallery will advertise the event through its own contacts list, web site and by other means that may be available at the time.

It is a condition of hiring the venue that the hirer:

  • Will also advertise the event via local newspapers and any other available means.
  • Will hold an exhibition launch party on or as near to the start of the exhibition as is practically possible.
  • Will invite as many of their own contacts as possible to the launch party in order to promote their own exhibition and to promote ‘Gallery at 12’ to a wider community.  

(The launch party need only be a simple affair with a few drinks and snack food made available. See also ‘Facilities available’.)  The cost of this is to be borne by the individual or group. 

Members of the gallery staff will be on hand during the launch to handle sales.


Facilities Available.

The upper gallery has daylight quality lighting and a number of 13amp outlets.

The gallery uses Perlon hanging systems. All wall hung items should therefore be provided with cord hanging systems. Individual wall hung items should not exceed 5kg in weight. If in doubt please contact the gallery to discuss.

The gallery has a range of lockable cabinets and plinths for display. Please discuss your needs before booking. Hirers are welcome to bring their own plinths but these must be plain white.

The gallery can accept customer payments by cash, cheque, debit or credit cards. See Charges for details. 

Glasses, plates and serving tables are available as part of the package.

The gallery has the use of kitchen and toilet facilities for the use of hirers and guests.

A small storage area is available for packaging materials and for replacement items.

More space may be available by negotiation.


Payments
All payments to the gallery must be made as follows:
• 50% non refundable deposit to be made at the time of the booking.
• Balance to be paid 2 weeks before the start of the hire period. 

It was proposed at our meeting on Friday that the 50% deposit be made three months in advance of the exhibition (this was proposed not having the current document to hand to check).  After due consideration I personally think that payment of 50% non refundable deposit to be made at the time of the booking as stated already is perhaps easier to manage for those stewarding the gallery.
It was also proposed at the meeting that the final balance of payment be made six weeks before the exhibition (the current requirement being just two weeks.)

My suggestion at this moment is to not make any changes* to the current document and to bring it up again at next months meeting as we seem to have put into effect a plan to take us through the next couple of exhibitions anyway.

Failure to pay the final balance by the due date (two weeks/six weeks?) will result in cancellation of the exhibition.

You are invited to the opening of Jo's exhibition on Sat 2nd November

Jo will be in attendance between 11am until 2pm.

You are invited to the opening of Jo's exhibition on 2nd November 2019. Jo will be in attendance between 11am until 2pm.


Jo’s work is created on her sewing machine, using a technique known as ‘free motion embroidery’ where she draws her unique designs onto fabric. As well as a variety of original textile wall art and lampshades, Jo will also have a range of gifts and homeware for sale. She has her designs photographed and printed onto fabric using a local printing service, from which she creates her textile homewares and kitchenware.


Please come and join us.


If you can't make the opening, Jo's exhibition will be on until the end of the month and can be seen during our usual opening hours.
