The Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery respects the cultural rights of First Nations and asks that artists' work be culturally appropriate in its content.

Commission and Taxes

Please note the ACLD will retain a 40% commission on all sales. Sales will include 7% PST. If you are required to remit other taxes besides PST, that will be the responsibility of the artist. Should a member sell a piece privately, ACLD must be notified immediately so the image can be removed from the virtual gallery. Honour rules about commission to the gallery for private sales apply during the three-month term when the work is online. 

Payment to Artists

Artist who have sold works are paid monthly, in the month following the sale. Payments to artists are made when accumulated sales reach $50 or more, or by the end of the calendar year. Payout cheques that are not picked up within 3 months will be considered a donation to the ACLD. If a cheque is picked up but has not been deposited within 6 months, the stale-dated cheque will not be reissued, and the amount will be considered a donation. If you lose your cheque, please contact the ACLD before the 6-month deadline to have it reissued.

Income Document

The Arts Council of Ladysmith and District is required by the Government to issue T4A slips for all sales payouts to artists if the yearly total is $500 or greater. Social Insurance Numbers must be provided by artists if a T4A is required.
