The Coastal Arts League is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Both the Museum and the Gallery Store are housed in the same building.
The 585 sq. ft. Exhibition Space, called The Arabella Decker Gallery, is adjacent to the cooperative Gallery Store. The Gallery Store is staffed 5 days a week, from noon to 5pm, providing opportunities for sales in both galleries. Commission rates on work sold in monthly exhibitions in the Decker Gallery is 30%.
Tax-deductible membership dues of $45 per year ($35 for students/seniors), is due at the time of your first installation and each subsequent January. Membership entitles you to a discount on entry fees in CAL Exhibitions.
Gallery Store dues are $120.00, due on the first of each month. First and last month’s rent, and acceptance of the rules, are required before work is installed.
Insurance is the responsibility of the artist. Artwork will be handled with care, but is shown at your own risk. You must carry your own insurance for theft or damage.
State Sales Tax (totaling 8.75%) is collected on the items you sell through the Coastal Arts League. It is the California State Board of Equalization’s requirement that we submit sales tax each quarter. Artists are not required to send tax to the BOE when their work is sold through the Coastal Arts League.
Commission on sales in CAL Gallery Store is 20%. When sales are made through the Gallery Store, the price of the item, minus 20% is remitted by check to the Artist. There is usually a one-month wait between sales and remittance, but the Artists are informed as soon as possible, in order to replace items sold.
Each member is expected to serve as Sales Representative once/twice a month, depending on the number of store members. If you are unable to serve, you may exchange dates with other Store members. You may also choose to pay $60.00 a day, in advance, for a Sales Representative, in addition to your monthly rent.
If you have signed up for a day and do not arrive, or if you fail to sign up in any month, you will be fined $60.00 per day.
Notice must be given in writing, to the CAL President, to withdraw from the Gallery Store. If you withdraw from the Gallery Store without 30 days notice, your last month’s deposit will be retained by the Gallery.
I agree with the policies of The Coastal Arts League Gallery Store, and commit to continue for 6 months:
