How to Submit Art and Craft Works to the Exhibition Frequently Asked Questions
An online submission form will be uploaded to this page on Wednesday, October 8, 2015.
How will the pieces be sold and/or the artists be paid?
When you submit your craft and artworks to the exhibition, you will fill out a form that will let us know if you want to sell the pieces you are submitting to the exhibition or not. 100% of the profits from art sales will go directly to the artists. 13% taxes and 3% administration fee will be added to this amount, so that Torngat Arts and Crafts can process your payment for you. You will be issued a cheque by Torngat Arts and Crafts within one week of the exhibition closing.
If you DO want to sell your work:
If you want to sell your artwork (and you don't have to, but we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity) we will work with you to set a fair, firm price for your work with a professional Inuit art appraiser, Pat Feheley of Feheley Fine Arts, an Inuit fine art gallery located in Toronto. Pat will work with you to set a price for your work more on par with Inuit art elsewhere in Canada. During the HV-GB exhibition, the works will be on display, and visitors to the exhibition will be able to purchase works from the exhibition (the "sold" works will receive a red sticker so people know it has been sold). Representatives from private art collectors, museums, galleries, local organizations and corporations will attend the exhibition opening, where they will not only be able to view and purchase the artworks, but also meet and network with the art and craft producers.
If you do NOT want to sell your work:
You may loan works to the exhibition that you do not want to sell. Pieces that are not for sale will be clearly marked in the exhibition and will not be given a price. These items will be returned to you at the end of the exhibition.
If your work is selected for the touring exhibition:
Regardless of whether you sell your work or retain ownership of your work, artists who have their art and craft works included in the touring exhibition, that opens at The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery in the fall of 2016, will be paid an artist fee every time the exhibition is shown. This is standard exhibition practice in Canada. Please note: the fee is the same amount for everyone, whether you have only one or several works in the exhibition.
