Long distance exhibitors


There is no carriage or postal service provided by the Society.  Works by carrier will be accepted but the packaging will not be saved for return.  Artists intending to send work to Central Hall Westminster from overseas should alert the Executive Secretary.  Work should arrive on the receiving day only.  Couriers bringing multiple works may unpack in the Gallery.  The Society will not take responsibility for payment of any importation charges or duties.

Unframed pictures may be sent, marked as above, which can be framed in the UK.  Jackie Gethin Hon RetSBA provides a special framing and delivery service to the Gallery.  Contact her directly on tel: +44 (0)1474 814231, or at Trotts Ash, Sole Street, Cobham, Gravesend, Kent DA12 3AY, UK or by email: richardjackiegethin@gmail.com now?


Commercial art carriers

For details and rates of any of their services, please contact the carriers directly.  Please do this in plenty of time as art carriers may be able to arrange alternatives.  If you can join with other artists, you may be able to reduce charges and use minimal packaging.
