Jostle 2015

Size and Medium

Work may be any shape or medium and no larger than 250mm in height, width or depth. 2-D work: Maximum 250 x 250mm. 3-D work: Maximun 250mm x 250mm x 250mm. However we still expect to receive works that are small but no larger than these dimensions.

We encourage artists to think outside the square. Viewers will be expecting to see anything to see anything from paintings to small bronzes, ceramics, glass and jewellery. 

Retail Price

This year there will be no set retail price - however a variety of retail prices are requested upward from $150 in increments of $50 ie: $200, $250, $300. $350 inclusive of GST. The gallery's commission is 41% of the retail price. The gallery pays on its own commission. Artists are responsible for their own GST whether they are registered or not. 

Entry Fee

$25 per artist, gallery members $20. This non refundable fee enables you to submit up to 4 pieces of work. (If you have paid to participate in the Waiheke Winter Arts Festival, your Jostle entry was included in that, so please submit at the gallery)


Work sold may be taken by the buyer as soon as payment is made to the gallery. Sold works will be replaced by entries received but not yet displayed. Payments to the artists will be made by direct credit on 20th of the month following completion of sale.


  • This is a "cash and carry" exhibition. All works must be for sale. The labels of works taken by buyers will be displayed in the gallery.
  • Work must be properly presented ready for display.
  • Artist's name, title of work, medium and retail price ($150, $250, $350 etc.) must be clearly written on the back or securely attached to each work.
  • The selection of work is at the discretion of the Director. Where no retail price is provided or the gallery has a differing opinion, the price will be set by the Director, whose decision is final.
  • Unsold work must be collected from the gallery the same week as the exhibition closure. It will not be returned to artists unless prepaid postage or courier tickets have been provided along with clearly addressed packaging. Work sent without adequate return postage and packaging and not collected within the time frame specified will become property of the gallery and may be sold to defray expenses. Accumulation of works not collected over the years have led the gallery to implement this policy.
