We also invite applications from local and national artists at all levels of their careers.

The successful applicants will be fully supported by  GHAT Curators, Marketing and Exhibitions team.

Exhibition Terms and Conditions:

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).

The exhibitor is responsible for transport to and from the venue. The Small Gallery is situated on one of the busiest corridors in ARI, therefore a GHAT staff member will supervise and organise the installation of artwork. All work to be installed on the walls of The Small Gallery must be fitted with mirror plates. Please advise if you are unable to provide these.

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 Small 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.

GHAT will produce the exhibition list and any other information to be displayed in The Small 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.

GHAT will issue a Press Release and information for listings in local and national papers. Other ads can be placed by arrangement with GHAT. GHAT will cover costs of printing posters, flyers and all mailouts.

A standard rate of commission is charged at 33% of the gross selling price.  Artists will receive a statement of sales as soon as all works sold have been paid for, payment will be made to the artist within 30 days of the exhibition being taken down. GHAT is not registered for VAT.

There is no fee awarded with this exhibition application. GHAT will cover the cost of marketing, installation and insurance.
