Terms & Conditions
Upon sale of artwork the buyer and I will complete and sign a Contract of Sale. The contract includes the following points
Although the copyright in the work is retained by the artist, the buyer shall be entitled to permit the reproduction of the work in art books, art magazines and exhibition catalogues so long as the buyer or a 3rd party is not profiting and the artist is notified and credited appropriately as follows:
© 2020 Sadie Phew - . When sharing any image of the artwork on social media the image must also be labelled to show copyright ownership as above. If the buyer wishes to reproduce the artwork for any purpose not mentioned above they can contact DACS who deal with copyright licensing on the artists behalf and a fee will be charged in accordance with current market rates. The artist retains copyright of the image and is entitled to reproduce the image for purposes including but not limited to, a series of prints, postcards, images online, clothing, textiles, promotional literature and theatre backdrops.
If the artwork is resold the Artist Resale Right applies and royalties are due to be paid to the artist. DACS handle the collection and determine the amount owed according to resale value. The Artist Resale Right is still applicable if the artist is deceased and still within copyright.
Other points included on the Contract of Sale are about care and restoration of the work, an opt in or out of allowing the work to be included in future exhibtions and placement of the work in institutions or for sale.
If you are a gallery wishing to display and/or sell my artwork please email me to discuss further. A consignment agreement will be completed and signed by both parties to agree terms.
I collect client contact details for the purposes of taking commissions for artwork, selling artwork and record keeping in accordance with HMRC only and I will never pass on clients personal information to 3rd parties.
Clients contact details are recorded on commissioning consultation documents and contracts saved on a password protected laptop, as well as some contact information stored on emails. My laptop is fully virus and malware protected.
I will not use your personal information to send newsletters or to contact you unless you have specifically opted in to receiving correspondence from me or to be contactable for future exhibtions.
I do not keep hard copy documents with client personal data on. Any hard copies of contracts etc will be scanned and stored on my password protected laptop.
I will keep a spreadsheet of client information for those who have opted in to receiving occasional newsletter updates from me via email and for those who have opted in to staying in touch to include their artwork in possible future exhibitions.
Clients can opt out of receiving email updates at any time by sending an email with the request to email@example.com and I will then delete your contact details from my spreadsheet.
I operate a tiered charging system for commissioned work which is relative to wealth and means. Rates must be agreed before work commences and the number of clients I work for on Rate A at any one time is limited. I work on a trust basis and ask you to tick which rate applies to you during the consultation process. For this purpose income includes money received from work, rent or any other means.
Rate A - £15 per hour (under 20k per year) *see notes
Rate B - £25 per hour (20-35k)
Rate C - £40 per hour (35k plus)
* Please note that if your earnings are below 20k but you are a homeowner or have savings, inheritance or an investment portfolio worth over 50k you will pay Rate B.
Materials and postage costs are charged in addition to the hourly rate.
All invoices are payable by Bank Transfer or Cash within 5 working days of receipt. All invoices are sent via email unless otherwise requested.
I want fine art to be accessible for everyone so if your budget is small please get in touch with what you are looking for and I will see if I can help. Payments by installments can be arranged if needed, but must be agreed before work commences.
