the Group pay expenses for exhibitions run by members?
Expenses incurred in
running exhibitions or other activities under the AIA-ArtGroup banner
are the responsibility on those individuals participating.
For example, if an
opening necessitates paying to the Gallery €100.00 for wine, soft
drinks, crisps etc. then this expenditure will be recouped by an equal
contribution from each of the participating artists. Always enquire
before you start ordering.
In the case of joint
exhibitions (2 artists) the costs are a bit higher but are split 50% by
each of the exhibitors.
If printing is
required then that also must be shared by the participating artists.
a Gallery not pay?
If a gallery is
running the exhibition and getting a high commission then they should
take the responsibility for printing and inviting clients, as well as
funding the reception. This will vary from location to location and
deals struck. Inquire before the event.
we use our own price tags in AIA-ArtGroup sponsored exhibitions?
No. We should all
use the same price tags in joint and group exhibitions. Samples

exhibitions. This will always be clarified prior to an exhibition. The
AIA-ArtGroup at this time only has fees from Members and "hanging fees"
for exhibitions where circumstances dictate.
