The DeGrazia Foundation assumes no responsibility for damage to or theft of the artists’ work. Standard of Conduct: Artists exhibiting in the Little Gallery are guests of the DeGrazia Foundation and are expected to be worthy ambassadors for the Gallery in the Sun. As such, they are required to be respectful of visitors and staff, the grounds and structures, indigenous flora and fauna, and the Little Gallery. This respect shows itself in the spoken word, in fair and honest transactions with customers, and in treatment of the environment. Disregard of this standard of conduct will constitute breach of the agreement, and the exhibiting artist or group may be asked to leave the Gallery in the Sun.
