    • Artists accept responsibility for freight and other charges incurred in the delivery or return of an entry.
    • Accepted art works must be delivered to the Art Show venue during the dates and times set aside for delivery. No late works will be displayed.
    • All unsold art works must be collected from the Art Show venue during the designated collection times.
    • The artist is responsible for providing artwork ready to exhibit (e.g frames, wire/string for hanging, canvases must be dry). Unframed/unmounted prints or photographs will not be hung. Secure framing or mounting is highly recommended.

Applicants pay a non-refundable entry fee of $40 (to enter up to four artworks).

A 30% Percentage commission is levied on any sales.

All artwork sales at Albert Park College Art Show will include GST in the sale price. The 30% commission is calculated on the Ex. GST price.
Please note that sales made by artists who are NOT registered for GST will have their payment reduced to cover the GST component of the sale.
For example, an artist who is NOT registered for GST lists their artwork with a sale price $1000. This is treated as the inc.GST price. When the artwork is sold at the Art Show, the 70% artist payment is reduced to 63.63% to cover the GST component. The final amount the artist will receive is $636.30.
