Instructions for HAEG members to submit an artwork to the Cygnet Gallery.

  1. Make sure hang-able artwork is ready to hang – with the usual robust cord or wire hanger firmly attached to the picture frame.
  2. Ensure your name, title, medium of artwork, price and contact phone number are written or firmly attached to the back of the artwork, or underneath the base if it is 3D, or on a tie-on/pin-on tag for small or fabric items.
  3. Take your artwork to the Cygnet Gallery during normal opening hours: 10-4 Wednesday – Sunday.
  4. The sitter in the gallery will take you through the process:
    • You fill out a form listing your contact details and the title, medium and price of each of the artworks you are bringing in.
    • The sitter (or you) will write a title card for each artwork with the following info on it – Title, Medium, Artist (your name), Price, and the date you brought in the artwork. Don’t do this for cards – the sticker in the next step is sufficient. Small articles of jewellery may be treated similar to cards – ask the gallery sitter for advice, and they will talk to a committee member of necessary.
    • The title card will be attached to the artwork with blu-tack and your artwork will then be placed in the storeroom or behind the gallery counter so one of the curating team can hang it where appropriate when space becomes available in the gallery.
    • Once your artworks have been entered into the gallery POS system a barcode sticker will be attached to the title card (or directly to a card).

When an artwork is sold the sale amount (minus commission) will be deposited using the bank account details you have provided – either using the membership form or the paper form in the gallery.
