The gallery employs curatorial expertise to implement the setting of exhibitions, programs and services in accordance with nationally recognised professional standards of operation.
It is not the gallery’s mandate to sell works of art during an exhibition. However the Lake Country Art Gallery will keep a price list available for requested inquiries and will take a 20% administration fee on any works which are sold during an exhibition.
The exception to this is the fundraising U100 exhibition for which we actively promote sales and will take 30% commission in support of future programming at the Gallery
