Sample Artist Gallery Consignment Agreement
1. The Agency`s area of activity. The artist names the gallery as the artist`s exclusive/non-exclusive agent in the following geographical area: -This agency applies only to works of art that the artist has filed during the current agreement. The gallery documents the receipt of all the works of art sent. The definition could include not only works sold directly by the gallery from its inventory, but also studio sales and/or commissions made by the artist during the gallery`s performance period. (See #11, Commissions.) 9. Insurance. Insurance for the full wholesale price should be provided by the gallery. The gallery is responsible for the franchise in its policy. The artist should have control of all repairs, if necessary. (For more information, check out the artists checklist: claims for damaged work.) 1. The Agency`s area of activity. The term «exclusive» implies that the gallery will, as a rule, be the only representative of the artist within a specified geographical limit, for a work or a volume of sales.
(See also #11, Commissions.) The geographic area may be limited to a single city or city, a radius of a certain number of miles, the region, a state, several states or nationally. With regard to the extent of an artist`s work, an exclusive representation could be limited to a particular work or a particular medium or type of work (for example. B schmuck vs Hohlware). 18. Applicable law. The laws of the program vary from state to state. Normally, the artist-gallery relationship is governed by the law in which the gallery is located. The second half of the book, The Artist-Gallery Partnership, by Crawford-Mellon, includes various state laws for consignment contracts. In addition, many states have artist-partisan groups or non-profit arts rights organizations that will be able to provide up-to-date information for a given state. Be aware! 3.
Prices and terms of payment. The gallery can only sell the artworks at the sale price listed in the inventory list. The gallery and the artist agree that the gallery`s commission must be the percentage of the sale price of the work of art. Both parties must agree in advance any changes to the sale price or the Gallery Commission. 18. Applicable law. This contract is governed by state laws and is in accordance with state law. This is a legal clause protecting the artist, which stipulates that the artist`s owner the work is shipped until full payment. Few states have laws that protect an artist`s work on the air from the gallery`s creditors.
This is an important reason why artists must use contracts with a security interest clause. The creditor`s rights are also cut off if there is a sign in the bleachers that says that the factory sold is on the air, but such signage is rarely used. 16. The duration and end of the shipment. The artist and the gallery agree that the initial delivery time of the work of art will continue until – and that the artist will not request the return of the work until that date, unless the agreement is violated by the gallery. Subsequently, the agreement will be maintained from one party to the other party until it has been terminated in writing. Within thirty days of the notice of termination, all accounts must be settled and all unsold artwork returned to the artist at the gallery`s expense. The contract automatically ends upon the artist`s death or if the gallery goes bankrupt or becomes insolvent or violates the contract.
