Emerging artists are exempt from monitoring, but are welcome to sit-in during show hours to present their artwork to potential clients if they'd like.
Sales: EEA will handle sales transactions and collect NY state sales tax. Participants are required to provide an IRS form W9 at time of drop off (required for payout after event).

Commission: a 30% sales commission on show sales net of any discounts.
Artist payments: payment for sold items will be made the month following show close.
Pick-up: Items must be removed at the conclusion of the event. Items left 90 days beyond show close will be considered abandoned and become the property of East End Arts.
