Delivery of artwork:

Delivering in person or courier: Artwork must arrive 19–21 December 2019 between 10am-6pm.

Delivering by Australia Post: Artwork must arrive 9–19 December 2019 between 10am-6pm.

If artwork is not delivered by these dates, it will not be included in the exhibition and fees will not be refunded.

Delivery costs are at the expense of the artist.

All artwork must arrive at the gallery ready to hang, including wire on backs of frames. Works using 3M fasteners will not be accepted. For unframed works the gallery will pin through the corners of the artwork – if a different method is required, please include alternative display system with artwork at drop off. If you would prefer your work be pinned through tabs, the artist is responsible for providing and preparing works for such installation. If your work does not have a sufficient hanging mechanism on the back that will hold the work up for the duration of the exhibition the work will not be hung and you will not be refunded your entry fee.

The artist's name AND title of the work MUST be written on the back of the work itself for clear identification. Unlabelled works may not be exhibited at discretion of gallery management, and in these cases the exhibition fee will not be refunded.

DO NOT use sticky tape to secure wires on back of frames. This method is ineffective and results in artwork damage.


Collection and return of works:

Artist/courier collection in person: Unsold works MUST be collected from Brunswick Street Gallery between 9am–7pm on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 January 2020. Work not collected by this date may be charged a $25 late fee, unless alternative arrangements made.

Under extremely special circumstances, other arrangements need to be made with Brunswick Street Gallery management, prior to the exhibition closing.

Works not collected by 25 February 2020 may be disposed of.

Packaging will not be stored by the gallery for artists dropping off works in person. Artists are responsible for bringing the appropriate packaging for transport of works upon collection. 

Interstate and remote artists: Unsold works can be posted back to artists via courier (no other postage options – do not send works with return postage stamps). This is the ONLY option for postal return of works. It is the artist's responsibility to contact the gallery prior to the exhibition closing date to request this service and confirm their address by 6pm, Tuesday 14 January 2020. Only clearly labelled packaging, appropriate for re-use, will be stored by Brunswick Street Gallery to return via courier works in. Brunswick Street Gallery will endeavour to reuse packaging wherever appropriate.

Courier returns process: Brunswick Street Gallery will obtain a quote for courier deliver back to the artist. Return of works via courier is at the artist's expense. Upon payment of our return invoice, Brunswick Street will arrange for a courier to deliver the works back to the artist. If the artist wishes to make their own arrangements, they must inform the gallery before exhibition's end so it can be made ready for collection on the appropriate day.

Due to the volume of works, those returned by courier may take up to 30 days to be delivered.

If no request is made by the artist for courier return, artworks will be treated as uncollected and disposed of on the aforementioned date. You must notify Brunswick Street Gallery of your courier return details by 6pm, Tuesday 14 January: entering your address on your application form does not count as requesting courier return. 


Commission on sold works:

25% commission on artwork sales applies. This includes GST where applicable.



While we take the utmost care of artwork, following industry best practice, Brunswick Street Gallery takes no responsibility for theft, loss or damage of artwork. It is advised that concerned artists purchase their own insurance.
