Shipping: The artist is responsible for the delivery of artworks to gallery and unsold artworks from gallery. A purchaser’s shipping costs are divided equally between the artist and the gallery.

The gallery shall be strictly liable to the artist for their loss or damage (except for damage resulting from flaws inherent in the Artworks), to the full amount the artist would have received from the gallery if the artworks had been sold.
