§ 2
Project conditions and dates:

1. Sending an application is not tantamount to qualifying for the Exhibitions. We care about quality and artistic diversity, and the exhibitions space is limited. Therefore, we reserve the right to select Participants and Artworks.

2. The works attached to the application are examples of the Applicant’s Works of Art. The number of Works presented at the Exhibition depends on the medium and size. The number of works will be determined individually with each Participant. As a reference point, you can use, for example, about 5 80×100 images or even a dozen or so small ones. Of course, other criteria apply to ceramics, sculpture, and, for example, jewelry. For this type of Exhibition, we recommend smaller sizes of works of art at affordable prices, but this is not a condition.
The exhibition space of the Gallery is irregular, so it is difficult for us to determine precisely the size of the area intended for one artist.
The Gallery always tries to present the works of individual artists and the entire exhibition attractively.

3. Applications:
– Applications will be closed by March 5, 2024, and emails confirming Participation will be sent no later than March 8.
– Applications will be considered on an ongoing basis, so the order in which they are submitted may be important.

4. After qualifying for the Exhibition:
– Participants will receive an email with detailed information. We ask the Participant to send invoice data, a photo of the Artist’s image, and a short BIO of up to 300 characters for marketing and promotional purposes.
– Participants will receive an email with detailed information and a payment link.
– We will contact the Participant to discuss the number and sizes of Artworks presented and ask for a list of all established Artworks with descriptions: Name, title, technique, size, and price (if Artworks are for sale).
– We will ask you to generate and send us a signed QR Code for Swish to be printed on the Artist’s information note. Code size 3-5cm.

5. Artworks should be delivered to the Gallery on March 18, between 12.00-18.00, or on another mutually agreed date before March 18. Delivered Artwork must be signed on the back and ready to hang (equipped with hook links on the back) or prepared for other presentations.

6. Assembly of the Exhibition is with the Participants on March 20-21, 10.00-18.00. The participant’s presence during the assembly of the exhibition is only necessary for unusual types of works of art, such as installations. In the event of the Participant’s absence during the exhibition assembly, the Participant obligatorily accepts the form, place of presentation, and the solutions used unquestionably.

7. Exhibition opening: March 22, 2024, 18.30. During the vernissage, the Participants will be officially presented with Certificates of Participation in the project. Participants absent during vernissage may collect the Certificate on any other day of the Exhibition or when collecting Artwork at the end of the Exhibition.

8. The Exhibition has a curatorial character. Therefore, the presence of Participants is expected during the vernissage. On other days, the curator, Mag Nilsson, supervised the exhibition.

9. VR Exhibition/ 3D exhibition online will present a maximum of 21 artworks in total.

10. In this Project, the Organizer does not charge a sales commission. Customers pay directly to the Artist via f.e., SWISH or PayPal.

11. The Participant should be prepared to provide additional Artwork during the Exhibition in place of those sold.

12. Deadline for collecting Artworks: April 8-9, 2024, at 12:00-18:00. Alternatively, another date is agreed upon individually.

The Gallery does not have a warehouse, so Artwork not collected on time and in the agreed manner will be removed from the Gallery. This will involve additional individual costs of storage, packaging, and transport.

Failure to collect the works on time, failure to agree on the method of collection of the Artworks, and inability to accept the terms of receipt beyond the standard rules described above uncollected works will be considered abandoned, and the Gallery will donate them as a charitable or destroy them.
