Images of the intended artwork for the exhibition
It is the responsibility of the artist to set up and take down their own exhibition. The Yukon Arts Centre does not pay artists for shows in the Community Gallery; however, the Yukon Arts Centre also does not take a commission from any sales that might occur as a result of these shows.
The Community Gallery is a public space within the Yukon Arts Centre; therefore, all artwork must be suitable for visitors of all ages and contain no offensive images or statements.
The Community Gallery is made available to artists as a public service. The Yukon Arts Centre will endeavor, to the best of its ability, to ensure the safety of the artwork in the Community Gallery. However, the Yukon Arts Centre cannot and does not insure the artwork and assumes no responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur while the work is on display in the public Gallery.
