Returns & Refunds

Unwanted Items* Purchased ‘In Store’ – Mid Cornwall Galleries will provide a credit note for unwanted items, not a refund. If you decide you no longer want the item(s) purchased, please return them to the gallery within 5 working days along with your proof of purchase. Items will be inspected and if found to be in their original condition a credit note will be issued.

Unwanted Items* Purchased Online or via Telephone – If you decide you no longer want the item(s) purchased, please notify the gallery within 14 days of receipt of your order. A telephone call between customer and gallery will be required to discuss the return (shipping method/packaging/cost etc). The cost of return will be incurred by the customer. Items must be returned in their original packaging (or packaging of equivalent quality) using a tracked/signed for/insured shipping method. A refund will be given only when the item has reached the gallery and been inspected to ensure it is still in it’s original condition. IMPORTANT NOTE: Responsibility for the safe return of unwanted items lies with the customer. Shipping artwork can be expensive and more often than not has to be done using specialist couriers because many others will not insure original artwork. Please be absolutely confident in your choice of artwork before ordering. If in any doubt, please contact the gallery for advice and assistance.

*Exclusions – Earrings cannot be returned for hygiene reasons. Commissions and any other form of personalised product made at a customer’s request cannot be returned. For example – A painting made to specific dimensions or of a specific subject matter.

Damaged Items – Customers must inform the gallery within 48 hours of receipt of your order if items have sustained damage during shipping. A clear photograph of the damage will need to be submitted and a telephone call between customer and gallery will be required to arrange for the return of any damaged items. The gallery will incur the cost of the return.


 ARTWORK IMAGES & DESCRIPTIONS – DISCLAIMER

Descriptions – All sizes listed on this website are approximate.

Images – While the gallery tries hard to use an image that accurately represents each piece of artwork, we cannot guarantee total accuracy because their appearance is also largely dependant on the screen used to view them. Colour, contrast and brightness levels may vary widely from screen to screen.
