Terms & Conditions

  • The full edition required is 28 prints
  • Artist’s work must predominately use the colour allocated to them (min 80%)*
  • No swapping of allocated colours with other participating artists
  • The full 28 editioned prints cannot have a visible variance of more than 10% and no more than 4 artist’s proofs should exist (please refer to What is an edition? Prints and Printmaking – a very short intro to terms and protocols)
  • Medium: Any form of printmaking (no digital or photography unless used as part of the traditional printmaking process)
  • Size of paper: 18 x 18cm (image/plate area can be smaller)
  • Exhibition: The complete 28 prints representative of each colour will form an exhibition at QG&W during November with other related works and coincide with colour themed workshops
  • Price of work: To be set by the artist (note QG&W retains 40% commission of the unframed work total sale price and 40% commission of the framed work after framing costs
  • QG&W requires one print (for framing), one print for the drawers, one print for the gallery’s full portfolio and 25 prints for the print exchange – edition of 28 total.
  • QG&W retains ownership of one full portfolio (that we hope to sell to an institution/collector)
  • QG&W will refund your framing costs in the event your piece is sold
  • Inks will be available for collection from Neil Wallace (You will need to take the payment confirmation email that we provide)

Costs will cover

Your paint (based on one 60ml tube of intaglio ink with any additional ink required to be purchased at artist’s own expense), exhibition costs (hanging, organisation, promotion, advertising, administration etc), framing of one edition, management, archival box for each artist’s editioned set, photography of each print and packaging for each artist. Unsold framed works to be provided to artists together with their complete archival box set.

*Artist’s work must predominately use the colour allocated to them (80%)

This could translate in many ways, eg. use coloured paper as the paper colour isn’t considered a colour. But please be wary of transparent colours and how they may change. If you choose to only use your allocated colour, then that would equate to 100% usage, no matter what your print looked like.
