Artist is responsible for transportation of all artwork to and from Shepherds of Good Hope. If work must be shipped, artist is responsible for packaging and shipping expenses. If special installation is required, exhibiting artists are responsible for installing their work at the Jean Pigott Hall on the day of the event. Art that is not sold during the event will be returned to the artist.
Artists can receive up to 60% of proceeds from their artwork sales at ArtSpeaks, with the remaining 40% being retained by Shepherds of Good Hope. Artists may choose to donate full proceeds of their sales to Shepherds of Good Hope at their own discretion.
