* Online exclusivity. Can you sell art online? If so, what? Today, artists want to maintain a certain degree of control and autonomy over their online activities. At the same time, a gallery needs to assure you that it has the exclusive rights to sell certain works for certain periods. And you need assurances from the gallery that you can maintain an active profile online. Depending on the nature of the relationship, the agreement may imply that you can sell art that the gallery has no interest or investment in. The Arts Law Centre of Australia offers model agreements for artists and arts organisations who can acquire them on their website. This standard contract can be used when an artist wishes to establish a long-term relationship with a gallery where the gallery acts as an agent for the exhibition, sale or promotion of the artist`s artwork. Thank you, Dan, for sharing this information. I, too, had problems with the fact that a gallery came out of the store.
Luckily, an artist friend (also in the gallery) called me and said, “Get your art out of the gallery now!” Other artists didn`t do very well. On another occasion, a gallery far from the interior of the country conducted a PhD in which five local coastal artists participated. The gallerist was “excited” to extend the exhibition. We did not receive our paintings or income from the sale for more than 6 months, as the owner was not reachable or the gallery was closed during opening hours. This is certainly a breach of trust. Many thanks to Tracy and Michael. I would answer that a written contract, which is executed to remember and agree, and the details of that agreement must be present. People do not have to be wary of a document that is developed with respect and in a spirit of protection for both parties. A written agreement does not mean that the parties do not trust each other. On the contrary, they are usually written out of respect for the relationship. These agreements protect both, especially in the event of unforeseen circumstances You will also give a remedy in case of breach of the agreement. Handshake agreements are dangerous for both parties and I have avoided them.
Only once was there a problem between me and a client, and our agreement protected me financially. * If you have agents, consultants, speakers, or others who work on your behalf to promote or market your art, determine in advance the amount of their commissions if they receive you from gallery exhibitions or other forms of representation or exhibition. . . .
