Artist Info for Online Gallery
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 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
All members are eligible to contribute to the online show. You do not need to have a piece in the gallery to submit to the online show. 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.

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.
We do hope our members will be as excited by this opportunity as we all are.
