Gallery holds $20,000 insurance on artwork hanging in gallery that is damaged by fire, or other natural catastrophe. Gallery cannot hold artwork for payment, or use artwork to settle debts in any form. Gallery cannot collect on a bad debt for artist, so artist must be careful of releasing work without full payment of the work in hand. Gallery will accept credit card payment, debit payments, checks or cash for work on behalf of the artist. Gallery will not release artwork to collectors until full payment is received.  Gallery will file sales tax report on sales made through the gallery. There is no storage at the gallery, so artwork must be removed promptly after exhibit. Show dates must be respected so that we all have ample time to hang and prepare for our exhibits.

The artist is responsible for hanging your solo exhibit and the cost of reception refreshments other than what WRS provides; one tray of cookies, nonalcoholic drinks, cups, glasses, flatware, napkins, and plates. The three exhibiting artists will need to provide wine and any other food as well as the tasks involved with the reception.
