Sale incentives for collectors

           There are a few incentives to encourage sales at the gallery. One being that art work prices have a slight negotiation bracket and please bear in mind that the price which will be on the contract is negotiable to help collectors submit an offer which on most cases they do. Another incentive is that the gallery will pay for the delivery of work which has been sold. This does depend on the size and any work up to 130cm in width will be sent by the gallery free of charge to the collector. One other incentive to help the sale is to give the collector a free bottle of Champagne with the sale and
           to also have a celebratory photograph of the collector with the art work in   background and bottle of Champagne.    


The Management fee of £220 is broken down into segments here.


Two adverts in International art magazines, google adwords provided by yell.com, and face book advertising.

This is the most expensive cost for the artists participating and this includes, two adverts =£435, google ads = £78, facebook ads = £60 total = £573. Divided by 7 artists = £86 per artist. Essentially, each artist is receiving advertising in two magazines, goggle advertising and face book advertising for one month for a fraction of the cost.

Invites and postage

£44 contributes towards the cost of designing, ordering and sending invites to the mailing list of currently 256 and the network list of 50.

Pr campaign and newsletter

£46 pays for labour of writing the press release and sending out 254, individual and personal emails out the pr database. The £46 pays for the labour of creating the gallery newsletter which is sent to over a thousand contacts. These contacts have joined the mailing list over the four year period of being open.


£19 pays for the labour of creating your web portfolio on the gallery website. Your work can stay on the website permanently without any annual fees.

Catalogue and art book

£22 pays for the design work of creating your paperback art book to a professional standard and designing and producing the one inclusive catalogue.


£3 goes toward the cost of wine for up to 50 guests.

Packing work on return

Free. The gallery can supply cardboard and bubble wrap. Some artists prefer to collect work in person, but in the case of asking us to wrap the work we will provide packing material at no extra cost. 


Bank details will be sent via email on completion of either the full payment contract or two-instalment contract. The two instalment contract allows for better financial flexibility as the second payment does not have to paid till a week before the exhibition is due to start.

Thank you for considering exhibiting at my gallery. I hope that you have understood the payment covers exhibition costs and allows £41 per artist to cover my time in design and production work.

I hope to here from you shortly,

Lloyd Gill

Gallery Director
