Buying Artwork from New Light/Terms & Conditions for the Sale of Artwork

If you wish to buy an artwork that is currently on tour in the New Light Prize Exhibition 2020/21, please be aware that by making a purchase through the New Light website you understand that the artwork is available by collection only and it will not be available until the end of its run at the current host gallery.  You will need to contact the host gallery to arrange collection of your purchased artwork. New Light will contact you by email to confirm this after purchase.

If you are buying an UNFRAMED print edition, it will be posted to you by the artist. New Light will need to pass on your address.

If the purchased artwork is currently in temporary storage (between shows)  you will still be able to collect the artwork in person (by arranging a time and date through New Light) or, If you prefer it to be delivered, there will be additional costs to cover a courier or postage.

If you wish to buy an artwork but cannot arrange to collect it in person, you should contact New Light in the first instance to discuss possible alternatives. There will be addtional costs if New Light has to arrange delivery of the artwork by courier. These costs will vary depending on the weight/distance of travel. We also recommend that you insure the artwork during transportation to cover any third party damage. Some couriers/postal services do offer insurance.

New Light will also reserve a piece of artwork for you for up to 3 days as long as a deposit (50%) is paid within that time-frame.
