Registration terms

Acceptance criteria

The works of art must be genuinely those of the submitting artist and must not infringe any copyrights.

We reserve the right to decide which works of art will be appropriate to our island. Therefore we will reserve the the right to refuse a registration application, or a particular work of art, on these grounds.

Artists applying for membership must submit at least 3-4 images typical of their work for review.

Island of Art will act as a non-exclusive agent on behalf of the artist to sell his or her artwork via the website.

Website content

Once the registration has been approved, the artist is provided with a username and password enabling the upload of the artist content to the website.

The artist must upload the images and details (title, price dimensions) of their works of art to the website. Please note the website will automatically optimise the images.

The maximum number of images is 40.

Sale of artwork

The artist will be notified when an artwork has been sold. It is then the responsibility of the artist to dispatch the artwork to the buyer. Please note the dispatch fee is based on 5% of the value of the artwork.

It is the artist responsibility to ensure that the artworks for sale on the website are available for dispatch. When an artwork is sold (either via the website or not) the artwork must either be removed from the site or its description changed to indicate it is no longer for sale. Please note artists are liable to pay a refund fee when an artwork has been sold on the website and is no longer available for dispatch.

Membership costs:

There is an annual Membership Fee of £25.

Administration fee:

A 25% administration fee will be payable to Island of Art for any sales made online via the website.

Membership renewal:

Island of Art will review each artist's membership at the end of each year to ensure that the relationship is still beneficial to both parties.
