Accounting details: Essentially, when are you paid? Is it right after the sale of a work? Once a month? Your art shipping contract should be extremely clear on these terms, as it is not scandalous that galleries fall off the radar in difficult times. The mailing reports will help you and the gallery track what you have delivered, what has been sold and what needs to be returned. It is helpful for you and the gallery to keep a copy of the mailing report handy to ensure that all your work is taken into account (sold or returned to you). Keep a clear record. Update Inventory data from work on the shipment. The best galleries and stores regularly send an updated inventory data set. If your catalog/shop hasn`t done so for some time, send them two copies of your inventory data set with an inventory check request and send a signed copy by email, so that they`re all on the same page. If the gallery/loading does not respond to your updated inventory request (every 3 to 6 months) for on-air art or crafts, I recommend that you return all artworks within a reasonable time (for example. B two weeks). In the next post tomorrow, Victoria will give us six steps if your gallery hasn`t paid you on time. Each step is simple, straight and relatively easy to do.

Faced with this bad economy, artists must learn to be better advocates for themselves and for each other in the arts and crafts community. If you have any suggestions on how you worked to avoid a bad payment problem, please share it as a comment. Click on the word HOW under this article. 6. The duration of the shipment. The artist and the gallery agree that the initial delivery time for works of art must be 12 months and that the artist does not intend to request their return before the expiry of this period. Then, the show continues until the artist demands the return of one or all of the works of art or gallery, that the artist takes over any of the works of art to which the other party must comply within 30 days. Being clear, conscious and intentional is the best way to start professional relationships with galleries. After you and the gallery owner or dealer have checked your works and the details of the shipping sheet, write down your signature with the name and signature of the person receiving the artwork. By facilitating the work of the gallery owner or shopkeeper, you stand out as someone who is easy to work and takes his work as an artist seriously. You will be the first person they think for the next show and will gladly call you to fill in the inventory.

Traditionally, the artists` gallery is clearly delineated. The artist made the work of art or crafts. The gallery took responsibility for marketing and sales. This model is simple and both areas are served by different skills and know-how. Indeed. However, this is a unique scenario. The authorisation of the resignation by the auction houses on the basis of the mere possibility of liability is risky in terms of authenticity. Art purchase contracts include guarantees regarding status, title and authenticity. Differences in the condition of a work should be obvious as soon as the buyer takes possession. Securities disputes generally involve simple legal issues, although the facts can be complex.

However, questions of authenticity can arise years after the sale, when new information is brought to light, when experts change their assessment of the work (perhaps even the same experts who initially supported the listing) or when new media analysis tools are developed.
