A small working bee of members is required at the MAD Gallery Lancefield 10am Friday morning August 11th to unpack and assist with the setup and hanging.

Can any members who can spare a few hours please let me know as we would hope for 30 or more members images to display.

Guidelines for pricing

Ultimately you can charge whatever price you want - it is your artwork after all. Things to consider when determining your price

  • Printing and paper cost
  • Mount board cost if used
  • Framing cost
  • How much 'profit' you wish to make - this could be the above costs doubled for example
  • You then need to add the 35% commission to ensure you get the 'profit' you wish to make
