Temporary Exhibitions - Guidelines, Terms and Conditions
The Public Exhibition Space in the Channel Museum (CM) is available for the promotion and display of the art & craft of local community groups & individuals. All applications to exhibit in our temporary gallery space are assessed by the CM Promotions Committee and must conform to community standards. We will not accept articles for exhibition which are assessed as unsuitable for a family audience. The promotions Committee is the sole arbiter in choice of items displayed, artists, and time allocation. We reserve the right to not accept or display any particular work.
If you would like to exhibit a collection in our temporary exhibition space, please read the information below and then contact us using the online contact form at the bottom of this page.
Artists are encouraged to place their work for sale, and to price their work at a realistic level. The CM will retain 25% of the sale price (for new bookings made after January 1st 2020).
A list of exhibited works, detailing name of artist; name of work; and sale price must be supplied to CM for confirmation and reconciliation purposes.
Any exhibits sold during the exhibition will remain on display until the end of the exhibition excepting if, in the opinion of CM, this places the sale in jeopardy. In this instance, every effort should be made by the exhibitor to replace the work with a similar item.
The CM take all reasonable care with exhibits, but will NOT accept responsibility for any loss, theft or damage of any exhibited items. Exhibitors are advised to insure their own exhibits.
Exhibitors must submit at least one high quality image (approximately 1 MB in file size) and an editorial script (preferably in Microsoft Word), of between 3/4 and 1 page describing the artist, the work, and the context of the work. CM may use this script as the basis for an editorial submitted to the Kingborough Chronicle, Press Releases sent to other media outlets, and any radio or television interviews arranged in conjunction with the display.
The exhibitor will allow reproduction of the supplied images in the media by CM free of charge, for promotional purposes.
The CM will arrange for lettering to be placed on their roadside noticeboard advertising the name of your exhibition. The choice of words is up to the exhibitor but should be appraised with the Promotions Committee. The lettering choice must be finalised 7 days prior to the exhibition date.
Exhibitors are encouraged to arrange an opening event for their exhibition. Invitations to such events are at the discretion of the exhibitor. The CM reserves the right to invite its members, at its cost, to any such event.
Catering for an event can be arranged with the Channel Cafe (CC) management. The cafe facilities are not available for self-catering. Subject to agreement with CC, an opening event may be held during the day or early evening.
Bumping In and Out
Displays may be set up on a date and time agreed to with the Promotion Committee, and dismantled accordingly. After the dates are agreed and advertised, no deviation is permitted. While the exhibitor is responsible for set up, CM volunteers may be available to assist.
