Therefore, where possible, items that have been paid for should be collected from 5 – 7pm at the close of the Exhibition on Monday 7th May 2018 and Tuesday 8th May 10am – 4pm. Only in exceptional circumstances can items that have been paid for in full with cleared funds be taken before the close of exhibition. Please arrange with Adrian Melrose who will generate a release note and you will be able to take your item with you. No items will be released unless fully paid for in cleared funds.
Prints that do not appear in the Catalogue are priced individually. Please take prints directly to the Payments Desk. Prints may be taken home after purchase, please ensure you have your receipt when leaving Glemham Hall
Commissioned Sculptures and other Commissioned Art.
It is possible that the delivery of many Sculptures and other commissioned work will be subject to a waiting period. This is due, for example, to customisation requests and casting processes. Once the item has been paid for in full, the buyer will be put in contact with the Sculptor or Artist who will deal with invoicing, customisation and delivery details.
Value Added Tax (VAT)
Please note all prices listed in the catalogue are the final prices you will be required to pay. These prices may or may not include VAT depending on whether the Artist/Sculptor is VAT registered. Since Art for Cure acts only as agent it is unable to issue VAT invoices. Not all artists and sculptors are VAT registered. Should you require a VAT invoice, please email our Treasurer, firstname.lastname@example.org before the close of business on Friday 10th May 2018 who will request a VAT invoice from the Artist or Sculptor if he or she is indeed VAT registered. Art for Cure makes no warranty that a VAT invoice will be made available but, will endeavour to obtain one should the Artist/Sculptor be VAT registered.
