EXHIBITION GUIDELINES

EXHIBITION SPACES

K Ward

The Art Gallery measures approximately 13 x 7 metres, providing approximately 13 linear metres of wall space. A staircase leads down into the area from the Main Entrance Concourse towards the West. The Main Corridor leads off the area to the east. The light source is mostly artificial with fluorescent ceiling fittings and halogen lamps. Some natural light falls from the glazed concourse wall above.

dress circle

The HMT Dress Circle Bar exhibition space consists of 3 panels measuring 3.675 x 1.8 metres, providing 11 linear metres of wall space.  The hanging system used is steel rods with hooks.  The Dress Circle Bar is in the centre of the HMT building, the light source is artificial with fluorescent spotlights. Further information and plans are available on request.

SUITABILITY OF ARTWORK
GHAT reserves the right not to show any artwork which is deemed unsuitable for exhibition in the hospital environment without further reference to the artist(s).  Artwork intended for HMT should be suitable for the hanging system.

INSTALLATION
The exhibitor is responsible for transport to and from the venue. A GHAT representative will be available to advise and help with hanging. All work to be installed on the  walls of the ARI gallery use mirror plates, work installed in HMT Dress Circle Bar use screw rings. Please advise if you are unable to provide these.

INSURANCE
The GHAT insurance policy will cover artworks on display, though there is an excess of £250, which would be met equally by GHAT and the exhibitor, unless responsibility could be clearly demonstrated. The Art Gallery is covered by security video cameras but is accessible 24 hours per day so work needs to be well secured and relatively tamper proof.

INTERPRETATION
GHAT will produce the exhibition list and any other information to be displayed in the Art Gallery. The artist will supply a list of all works with titles and prices, an Artist’s Statement and a current CV. The artist will also supply an image to be used for the invitation, which will be required two months prior to the exhibition date, along with an appropriate title for the exhibition.

PUBLICITY
GHAT will issue a Press Release and information for listings in local and national papers. Other ads can be placed by arrangement with GHAT.

SALES AND COMMISSION
A standard rate of commission is charged at 33.3% of the gross selling price.  Artists will receive payment with a statement of sales as soon as all works sold have been paid for, usually within 14 days (with exception of work sold at HMT where commission will be charged 36% payment will be made by HMT to the other parties within 30 days of the exhibition being taken down). GHAT is not registered for VAT.
