A final settlement of all monies from art sales due the artist will be provided no later than 30 days after the sale. If a piece of art sells within one month of the close of the exhibit and the purchase is in any way attributable to the earlier exhibition of the work at St. George's, the sale must be handled through St. George's and be subject to a 30% commission.
The artist is encouraged to donate a painting or three-dimensional work from the exhibit to the St. George's Foundation. Such donations will be greatly appreciated and will assist the school in fulfilling its educational mission. St. George's will display the donated art as part of its permanent collection.
