    This Exhibition Agreement (The Agreement) is made between The Guild of Artists & Artisans (The Guild) and The Artist.

    Delivering + Picking Up Artwork
    The Artist is responsible for delivering artwork to the Ann Arbor Club on May 29 between 9am-12pm. All artwork must be ready for presentation upon delivery. Delivered work must be dry and complete.

    The Artist is responsible for picking up unsold artwork from the Ann Arbor Club on the designated pick-up date and time in July. Artwork will only be released to someone other than the artist if prior arrangements have been made. If an arrangement has not been made and the artwork has not been picked up 30 days after the exhibition ends, the artwork will become property of The Guild, and The Guild reserves the right to treat the artwork as a donation.

    If necessary, all shipping and packing costs will be the responsibility of the Artist. The Artist is responsible for coordinating transportation of unsold artwork.

    Any work sold in the exhibition will result in the artist members receiving 70% of the sale price, with The Guild keeping the remaining 30%. Non-members will receive 60% of the sale price, with The Guild keeping the remaining 40%. The Guild will charge tax at the time of the sale and remit this as required by law. The Artist will receive payment for sold work(s) at the end of each month.

    The Artist understands that The Guild does extensive promotion on traditional and social media. The Guild and the Ann Arbor Club may publish photographs of artwork for promotional purposes.

    Care and Preservation of Artwork
    The Guild agrees to professionally care for all artwork and to report any damage or other findings to the Artist. The Guild is not responsible for cleaning, restoring, or reframing the artwork. The Guild is not responsible for any damage to the artwork during the exhibition time frame, and The Guild recommends that the Artist provides their own insurance.

    Liability & Insurance
    In displaying artwork at the Ann Arbor Club, The Guild is acting solely as a representative of the Artist, and neither it nor its members shall be liable for loss or damage to artwork due to fire, theft, loss or destruction of any kind other than those created by The Guild’s negligence. The Guild recommends that the Artist have their own proper insurance coverage during the exhibition period, as well as during the transportation period to and from the venue.
