Welcome to one of LAC’s 2019 Newest Endeavors: our Online Gallery/Store
It is Time for us to have a presence in digital space!
We are introducing something new to us….something exciting…something that will expand our service to our members….and something that we are in the business of constructing and refining. It will just get better as we go along and as more members take advantage of the opportunities provided by on-line shopping. We hope to expand our audience and provide more access to the many talents displayed in our Waterfront Gallery each month.
THE GALLERY’S ROLE
Our on-line shows will continue the monthly themes of the regular physical show in the Waterfront Gallery and will be launched at the same time as the official opening.
The on-line shows will remain on the web for a 3 month term and will be open for business even after the physical show has changed.
The on-line gallery will accept payment for a piece that sells, and will include a 7% tax. Payment to the member will be as usual, the gallery taking 40% on all artwork sold on-line.
ARTIST OF THE MONTH
As an ADDED BONUS, each month an Artist of the Month will be chosen randomly, by lottery from the entries. This artist will have a separate page attached and can submit up to 15 pieces of work, plus a short biography.
The LAC will be working diligently to provide upgrades to the on-line gallery as we go along until we have a product that has a very professional aspect.
The on-line store will be accessed through our web-site at ladysmithwaterfrontgallery.com.
Members must submit physical work to the gallery for hanging in order to be eligible to submit work to the online gallery. If choosing to participate in the new monthly on-line show which will run concurrently with the gallery show, members must provide photographs of their entries.
Up to three works per person may be included in the virtual gallery, and they must be the same ones that are in the physical show.
However, under occasional and unusual circumstances you may request to submit only to the online gallery. In that event, the member should apply by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with reason for them unable to submit work physically.
Again, a maximum of three works per member may be entered per show.
How to submit your work…….
A clear and well- lit photo of your piece(s)
Photo(s) should be 500 kb, 1500 to 2500 pixels wide
Photo(s) should be saved as a .JPEG or .PNG
Please save the photo(s) as title_artistname_membernumber
Also include in body of email:
Title of Piece
Note: More than one picture of a piece of 3-D art is acceptable
On-line entries close at 6pm on the Friday before the opening.
To submit photos, remove photos or if you have questions email to
Should a member sell a piece of work privately, LAC must be notified immediately so the image can be removed from the virtual gallery. Honour rules about sales commissions to the gallery should apply during the three month term of on-line exposure.
Shipping requirements of works that are sold will be the responsibility of the artist.
We do hope our members will be as excited by this opportunity as we all are.
