No, it is not required that your piece be for sale (unless otherwise indicated on the prospectus) for a SAQA Global Exhibition. Regional exhibitions may differ - check the prospectus.
SAQA charges 25% commission and some exhibiting venues might charge a commission (total commission will not exceed 50%).
Pricing should be consistent with the artist’s sales record, if any, or comparable works. Do not deduct any amount for commission when determining this value.
If a quilt is not for sale, it must be specified in the application, and an insurance value must be included in the application. Artwork prices cannot be changed after the application is submitted.
