By agreeing to exhibit at the Cynon Valley Museum it is agreed a non-refundable bond payment will be made to Cynon Valley Museum Trust. This sum is held against any commission made during the length of the exhibition. Commission will not be charged against sales until the value of bond equates to 30% of sales, (the value of CVMT standard commission). After that point, the CVMT will charge commission to the extent that the bond and commission charges remain equal to 30% of all sales from the gallery space.
Please note: the gallery rates may increase after April 2023 as CVMT compete with rising operating costs. All exhibitions booked and confirmed before this change of rate will be honoured. Applicants will be updated accordingly as soon as the new figures are calculated.
The bond per week for each gallery is as follows:
|Rate (Per Week)
This can be offset against any commission from exhibition sales during your exhibition. Shop sales will not contribute to this. Commission will only be taken when commission exceeds the non-returnable bond.
For example, for a four-week exhibition in the Lower Gallery:
Non-refundable bond £168
Exhibition sales £150
Commission £45 (not taken)
£150 returned to artist within 30 days of the end of the exhibition.
For example, a three-week exhibition in the Mezzanine:
Non-refundable bond: £90
Exhibition sales: £330
Commission: £99 minus £90 bond = £9
£321 returned to artist within 30 days of the end of the exhibition.
The non-refundable bond does not cover the use of the gallery spaces for launch events, open evenings, workshops.
