Frequently asked questions about exhibiting at these exhibitions.

WHAT TYPE OF EVENT IS IT?: This is a "by invitation" collaborative exhibition of 25 great local creatives; producers of original art/photos/sculpture,art-greeting cards and prints.

WHERE IS IT? The April 2023 Exhibition is in Brownlow Hall, Newell Green Warfield RG42 6AB. There is plenty of free off-road parking, seating, heating, toilets and the hall is locked and secure overnight.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO EXHIBIT? There is an appearance fee of £25 per exhibitor to exhibit any work in this exhibition.  This £25 is payable by funds transfer after the exhibition, when you will have been sent an invoice/statement net of any revenue received from sales of your work.

HOW MANY PIECES CAN BE EXHIBITED? Individual exhibitors are allocated a display board space (as pictured below) OR a length of wall/picture rails approximately 5 metres long and 2 metres high. Within this space you can hang as many or few pieces of framed art/photos as look right without it looking overcrowded. You can bring additional work to replace any items sold. NOTE: You cannot just pin pictures to the display boards as if it were a notice board

HOW IS ARTWORK SELECTED? To ensure your participation in this and any future event, the overall quality of your work must be high, finished, tidy, well framed, well executed, well presented, well labelled. Your art should be your best.

You the artist choose your own portfolio to fill the allocated hanging space (as pictured below). The organisers do not screen or filter work to be exhibited. This is your opportunity to present a range of your work, to risk and to impress. We do reserve the right to remove work that may offend a family audience or manifests blatant copyrite infringement. This is the artists' opportunity to really express themselves. Mixed media is welcome - BUT please note this is not a Craft Fayre !

CAN I BRING CARDS AND RACKS AND EASELS: Yes. Exhibitors are provided with tables on request for FREE, you can bring your own if you want a particular size of table. There is space for easels, art/print racks and moderate displays of Art "Greeting" Cards. They will be adjacent to where the artist’s pictures. All art work in racks must be wrapped in cellophane and individually and clearly labelled to aid the sales process. Mains power is available in some wall display spaces if required

WHEN IS THE ART HANGING/SET-UP TIME? Artists hang their own work, or make arrangements with someone to do it for them. Your hanging space is prior allocated by Jonathan Greenyer.
  • 1) Early Hanging time on Friday: Come and hang your work on FRIDAY 14th April BETWEEN 3.00pm and 6.00pm (or at a time by prior arrangement)
  • 2) Hanging time on Saturday. On the day of the exhibition Saturday 15th April from 9.00am but it must be ready for opening time of 12.00
Jonathan Greenyer, the organiser has final say on curating/hanging/display . All packing or wrapping materials should be taken home.

WHEN IS TAKE-DOWN?: Exhibitors remove all their unsold exhibits on Sunday 16th April 2023 at 5.00 pm – no earlier. Nothing can be left in the hall on Sunday evening.

HOW ARE SALES HANDLED DURING THE EXHIBITION? When an exhibit is bought, customers can take the items away immediately after payment. A bubble wrapping service is provided for free. If we process a sale through our exhibition SUMUP CARD PAYMENT MACHINE, then you (the exhibitor) will incur payment handling fees of 5% off the sales value. Any other method of paying for art - cash, cheques or payment direct to an artist - are free of this handling fee. 

WHAT ABOUT MARKETING & PROMOTING THE EXHIBITION: In addition to the organisers' marketing campaigns, we expect exhibitors to promote that they are exhibiting via social media and whatever means possible. You will all receive a media pack including printed A5 flyers near the date of the exhibition. A3 and A4 posters are available on request.

HAVE YOU ANY TIPS ON MARKETING FOR THE EXHIBITORS THEMSELVES? Successful artists today need to really "get out there" and undertake a sustained integrated marketing programme that could include email, word of mouth, posters in shops and libraries and on fences etc, printed biographies, A5 handouts/flyers, social media including Instagram, Facebook, LinkIn etc, your own websites, direct invites to prospects and plenty of lively creative noise to promote yourself as an artist and your appearance at this event. Customers interested in your work will find you by one or more of these methods and may then follow your media and attend your exhibitions to meet you in person. It may take a while to secure this level of following but without making the effort how will potential customers ever find you? Do you have business cards to hand out? Is there a printed bio telling the world about YOU? Are your contact details on everything you produce? Want more help marketing? We can provide advice

HOW DO WE HANG OUR PICTURES?   There are professional style display boards or picture-rails on walls from which to hang your art.  We also provide you with all the hanging systems for your art and photos. These are the two ways to hang art, and both depend on your art having hanging "strings" or D-Rings on the back. No D-Rings or Strings = your art will not be hung.

1) The first (Left Picture below) it is exhibition grade nylon hanging threads (perlons) from STAS with adjustable hanging hooks.
2) The second (Right picture below) is a chain hanging system with S hooks for your art. In both cases you can hang two pieces of art per cord/chain  at the right height.

Pictures that have no fitted horizontal hanging strings/rings will not be hung in the exhibition and will be lent against a wall

HOW SHOULD ART BE LABELLED? Every single piece of art, craft, photo or greeting card must be clearly and individually labelled. For hanging art the label will be attached to the boards (pins or velcro) or the wall (Blue Tac), it will face the public so they can read itead. If you are selling cards they must carry your name and the unit price, so the Cashier can sell it at the correct price. No price, no sale.

Details on the label for hanging work should include a) the artist’s full name, b) the media used, c) the title, d) a selling price If an exhibit is not properly labelled it will not be included in the exhibition.


WHAT ABOUT STEWARDING AND MEET AND GREET?: The public like to meet the artists, and you can convert a view to a sale better than anyone. But, we do not demand that artists are in attendance if it is not convenient for you. But you are welcome anytime. The low low entry fee is because the exhibition runs with minimal overheads, so please volunteer to steward for a couple of hours during the exhibition, we genuinely need enthusiastic stewards to help create the right atmosphere, greet the visitors, explain art to them and bubble wrap art sales.

WHEN IS TAKE-DOWN?: Exhibitors remove all their unsold exhibits on Sunday 16th April 2023 at 5.00 pm – no earlier. Nothing can be left in the hall on Sunday evening.

NOTE: This is a friendly cooperative art exhibition everyone works together to make it a success that is also how we keep costs down.  We organise this and other events to help local artists secure attention and sales and to meet other artists (and the public). All exhibiting artists are expected to help promote and run the event to make it a successful and enjoyable event. There are no paid labourers, expensive technicians, superannuated hanging-assistants - its all down to the artists and their families.
