Propeller will retain a commission (20% for members, 30% for non-members) on all artworks sold in the gallery or through the online shop.
Works offered for sale in exhibitions should be framed or Ready to Hang. Works in member shops may be unframed as long as this is noted. All exhibited works must be original. Original works are those requiring direct hands-on involvement. Photography, artworks of digital origin, or printmaking creations are excepted under the condition that they are sold as limited-edition prints.
Propeller will create an online shop for all exhibitions. In-gallery exhibitions typically run for three weeks, accompanied by an online gallery on the website. Some exhibitions may be online only. The online gallery and online shop typically extend 30, 60 or 90 days past the start date of the exhibition, at which time a condensed archive page is created.
Works will be available for sale in the gallery and through the Propeller website, Facebook and Instagram. Artworks listed for sale must be exclusive to Propeller for the duration of the exhibition and the extended online shop period. Artists can elect to have works marked Not for Sale (NFS) at the beginning of the exhibition. If any work listed for sale is sold during the duration of the exhibition or the extended online shop period, whether through Propeller or independently by the artist, the commission must be paid to Propeller. We expect artists to act in good faith, and not withdraw artworks in order to avoid paying the commission.
For Propeller open call and invited group exhibitions (such as Salon), the online exhibition and shop will remain active until 60 days after the start of the exhibition. If the artist’s works cannot be made available for sale on Propeller’s website for the full duration of the in-gallery and virtual exhibition, arrangements should be made to exclude the work by notifying the gallery administrator before the start of the exhibition Artists are responsible to notify the gallery immediately if any work listed in the Shop is no longer available.
Shipping fees are not included in the price of the artwork. The artist is responsible to prepare the work for shipping and negotiate any shipping fees with the buyer.
Members may place a maximum of 21 works of art for sale in their Shops. Works may be withdrawn in the event that the work is no longer for sale, however, if any work is sold while it is listed in the Shop, whether through Propeller or independently by the artist, the commission must be paid to Propeller. We expect Members to act in good faith, and as per the contract signed, and not to withdraw artworks in order to avoid paying the commission. Members are responsible to notify the gallery immediately if any work listed in the Shop is no longer available. Artworks listed for sale in Member shops must be exclusive to Propeller, with the
exception of limited edition prints.

If a Propeller Member elects to do an art swap, gift or donation of pieces currently available in an in-gallery exhibition, an online exhibition or a member shop, they are not required to pay the commission to the gallery.
