d/ All pieces in the exhibition will be fully insured and all pieces protected with dust covers (as appropriate) outside of exhibition hours.
e/ Sale of art works during the exhibition will be made at a sales desk. We would ask the purchaser to allow the work to remain in the exhibition until the end of the festival. Local purchasers can return to collect after the exhibition closes. If the piece is to be sent out of the region, it is the exhibitor’s responsibility to arrange freight at their cost to the ultimate buyer. We suggest a freight charge be added to the purchase price.
f/ Art pieces not delivered personally to Sileni, can be freighted as under:
Penny Brisco, Sileni Estates, 2016 Maraekakaho Road, RD1 HASTINGS Telephone (06) 879 8768
The exhibitor is responsible for the safe packing and freight charges of pieces submitted for the exhibition.
Sileni will bear the cost of return freight of any pieces unsold or not for sale, submitted from those exhibitors not resident in Hawke’s Bay.
Pieces delivered personally need to be received by Monday 11th or Tuesday 12th June between 10am and 5pm. (We would prefer not to have to store pieces too far in advance).
g/ We would welcome your personal attendance if feasible. Please complete the attached form.
h/ Your help with provision of some names and addresses of your good contacts would be appreciated. We contemplate a launch cocktail function and wish to compile and invitation to this, as well of course, to the exhibition itself. (This list will be received in the confidence it is given, and not used or disclosed to other parties).
We would appreciate receiving your confirmation response by Friday 11th May as catalogue formatting, appearance schedules and media releases all have planning deadlines of mid May.
Thank you for your interest in this inaugural exhibition by invitation. Through your decision to participate, we are confident of its success. That support is truly appreciated. We want to make the exhibition a regular major event on the art calendar.
