How long can I book for and how much does it cost?You can book the jeannieavent gallery for two-week slots, which run from Wednesdays to Wednesdays. One-week slots can occasionally be accommodated. The gallery fee from 2023 will be £350 for two weeks. This covers heating, lighting, card payment facilities etc.
Do you take a commission?Yes, our commission on total sales is 25%. This is payable at the conclusion of the exhibition.The majority of sales are card transactions, with the money paid into the jeannieavent gallery account. At the end of the exhibition, after the commission has been calculated and deducted, artists will be paid the balance by cheque from the jeannieavent account.
Can I have a private view?Our usual private view rules are: Private views held in the evening should conclude by 9.30pm. Any music or live performances should conclude by 8.30. Please avoid using any single-use plastics or other non-sustainable materials, e.g. plastic cups or waxed paper cups. Wine glasses are readily available to rent from local off-licences. The jeannieavent gallery is in a residential location and we request that artists are sensitive regarding noise levels.
What are the logistics?Your booking will begin at 12 noon on Wednesday – this is to allow you to hang the exhibition in time for a private view on the first Thursday or Friday if you choose. When promoting your exhibition, you should ensure any printed materials are recyclable or compostable. We will issue you with a key to the front door, and you can choose opening times that suit you – for example, artists with commitments during the week sometimes only open at the weekends. You should display your chosen opening times clearly on the front door. You are free to hang your exhibition as you wish (see terms below). Artists make good on arrival, and can leave the gallery as it is for the next artist. You must vacate the gallery before noon on the last Wednesday.
Do I need to provide Insurance?The gallery has insurance which covers fire and flood etc, and public liability. We are not insured against shop lifting, or any damage to artwork or the gallery itself caused by the artist or the public.
