1.0 Consignment of Art Work
The Artist (Consigner) hereby consigns to Art/Not Terminal Gallery (Consignee) the Art Work on delivery to the Gallery, on the monthly art pick-up/drop-off date, properly registering art and paying in full the prescribed “hanging fee” for all the artist’s work to be displayed that month. Art will be displayed at A/NT Gallery. The location within the gallery will be at the Gallery’s sole discretion, and the art may be moved within the Gallery during the period of display (consignment period). The consignment period shall be from the consignment (drop-off) date to the termination or pick-up date (typically one month) as listed on the Gallery’s website. Artwork must be undamaged and professionally framed where appropriate. Two-dimensional art must be equipped with a strand of wire or other fixture adequate for secure placement using the Gallery’s hanging system. Only art meeting these conditions will be accepted. Gallery will not be responsible for failure of the hanging system.
2.0 Consignment Fee Agreement
The Artist (Consigner) hereby agrees to pay in full the posted display fee for each item of art for every consignment period the art is in the Gallery. Fees are published below and listed on the Gallery website. Fees are subject to change without notice but will remain constant within a consignment period. This Terms and Conditions Agreement page is the official pricing list and will be the standard to resolve any errors or disputes. All payments of consignment fees are final and not refundable.
2.1 Consignment Fees
Fees for 2-dimensional art are assessed by the horizontal inch, inclusive of all framing material. The standard hanging fee is the greater of $40 or $3 per inch for up to 36 horizontal inches. A discounted rate of $20 or $1.50 per inch applies if the artist volunteers for 8 hours of service in two four-hour shifts during the month that the art is on display. (Example: 15” wide = 15x$1.50 or $22.50 at the volunteer rate.) For Artwork more than 36 inches, the standard rate is $108 plus $1.50 for each inch of width in excess of 36. The volunteer rate is half of the standard rate or $54 plus $0.75 for each inch in excess of 36. (Example: For 42” wide, $54 plus 6x$0.75 = $58.50 at the volunteer rate.) Fees for 3-dimensional art are assessed by square foot of floor space. At the standard rate, the fee is the greater of $40 or $20 per square foot (whichever is greater) of the pedestal on which the piece stands. A discounted rate of $20 or $10 per square foot (whichever is greater) applies to any artist who volunteers for 8 hours of service to the gallery. Work not on pedestals will be assessed at the above formula, applied to the nearest enclosing rectangle for the piece.
2.2 Sale of Registered Artwork
The Consigner may offer for sale the Artwork at prices entered during the registration. The purchase price and other details including the title, Artist name, and medium shall be taken from the Artist’s registration form. It is the Artist’s sole responsibility to assure that all data entered into the registration form are correct, properly spelled, and capitalized. A/NT (Consignee) shall use an electronic payment system for securely processing the customer’s Visa®, MasterCard®, or ApplePay®. Consignee shall remit to the Artist the purchase price of the Artwork, less a 15% sales commission to be retained by the Consignee, within 30 days of the sale and payment. Any loss due to theft, nonpayment, or payment reversal by the purchaser shall be borne by the Artist.
3.1 Bin Prints

Only twodimensional prints or small original art will be allowed and may be removed or rearranged without notice by Gallery staff. Bin prints must be at least 7 inches at the shorter (rectangular) dimension and not more than 20 inches at the longer dimension. A gallery sale commission of 50 per cent will be assessed on all bin items.

Such notice and the labelling thereof will be the sole responsibility of the Artist.
At the end date of the consignment period published on the calendar of the Gallery’s website, Artist shall promptly and safely remove his/her Artwork from the consignee’s premises without damage of any kind to the Gallery. Consignee shall have no responsibility for an Artwork after the end of the consignment period. Each piece left after the end of the consignment period is subject to a charge of $5 per day.
