Insurance for public display

Recommended Posts

I have been lucky enough to get a piece I did into an Art gallery but they want me to have Insurance.

 

I have only just heard this via email and will meet them next week to discuss...I would like to go prepared knowing what`s what but on-line just now answering silly questions that don't apply to me or the situation the quote came out at £160 FFS

 

What do you guys who exhibit your work at wood fairs ect do?  I only need 1 months cover for this one event.

What is the piece?  I am just wondering how risky it is but without knowing if it is a 20m totem pole or a turned life size cherry we are a bit in the dark.

 

I sort of hope it is a life size cherry...

Yeah maybe that is all they want.  OP didn’t say and I assumed product liability.

 

Theft and accidental damage cover should be cheap enough. Proving the value could be tricky if it was pinched.

Thanks for that...This place is an Art gallery but they do have a section with local craft stuff so maybe the lady I was talking to just got confused with the craft side of things.

Cheers Saul , I think that to ...I cannot see any other possible claims to be had. I will have to see what they require next week. It is going to be in a window display so damage from public will be very unlikely unless there is a riot.

Insuring your stuff against theft and damage is a really good idea but although you might think it is usually the responsibility of the exhibitor, so your responsibility on your stall in a craft show, the shop owners in a gallery, etc, this isn't always the case and you should always check, one guy on a different forum lent some miniatures that had literally taken years to build to an international company for a major showcase and they were stolen when everyone was packing up, no-one had valued them, and an apology doesn't really cut it....
