  • Exhibitions are scheduled for a fortnight beginning with set up on a Wednesday;
  • Opening receptions Friday 6pm to late;

  • A 20% commission applies to all work sold as part of exhibitions.

  • Successful applicants will be required to have all works ready for display (d-rings, wire, plinths, shelves etc);
  • Exhibitors are responsible for the transport of their own work to and from the exhibition space;
  • Artists are responsible for all insurance of their work. (Whilst the Old Ambulance Station volunteers take care with artworks supplied, they take no responsibility for theft or damage of the works whilst in their possession).

The exhibition space is fitted out with gallery hanging systems and fixed lighting. Successful applicants are welcome to supply their own equipment, as long as any electrical appliances are tested and tagged by a qualified electrician.
