There is a long list of guidelines for this show, so please read if you plan on attending:

Works will be available for in-person sales first, the day of the exhibition. There will be NO digital preview before we open the doors on Saturday, October 9. NO pre-sales of any kind.

There will be a limit of one work per artist, per patron / couple / household. There is no holding space in line for more people - they will need to get at the back of the line when they arrive. We reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone we feel is a "line sitter".

Small groups of 8 will be welcomed in at a time to browse the show and make their purchases. Once all sales are completed, the next small group will be allowed in. 

Any works unsold during the opening reception, will be offered for sale the week following the opening at verticalgallery.com (Monday, October 11th, around 9am Central).

Payment by credit card with chip only and have a photo ID that matches the credit card, or cash. Chicago sales tax of 10.25% added to all orders placed in-person at the gallery. If we are shipping artwork, all work will ship at the end of the exhibition. USA shipping rates range from $45 - $85, depending on size of the work. International shipping is $95 - $160.

Buyer agrees they will not, under any circumstances, offer The Artwork through an art fair or public auction for a three (3) year period (the “Non-Resale Period”) starting from the date of the purchase. Full details listed below.*

All works featured in the show are 16x20 inches (40x50 cm) or smaller.

For those of you planning to arrive early: It is supposed to be a nice day on Saturday! The sun shines on our side of the street in the morning, so it can get quite warm. (But this is Chicago, so check the forecast before you come over.) Parking is free on N. Western Ave. There is no public restroom in the gallery, but there are coffee shops and gas stations in the neighborhood.
