Some FAQ’s about our submission process:
Q: Are you currently accepting new artists?
A: We have a rolling submission process. We do not have set dates for submissions, but that does not mean we always need new artists. Even if we like an artist’s work it may not be a medium, price-point or style that we need at the time; we keep all submissions on file for at least a year.
Q: How do you decide if an artist is right for you?
A: We look at several factors when deciding whether or not to accept an artist. The quality of the work being the most important, followed by price-point, uniqueness, and professionalism in communication. We carry more than just metal art and jewelry. We are always looking to broaden our range of products.
Q: How long will it take you to get back to me?
A: Typically, two to four weeks. It can be less than that, but we get many submissions to review each week on top of our day to day business. Once your submission is received, it will be reviewed by several people before a response is given.
Q: Do you require gallery exclusivity?
A: We make case by case decisions and exceptions for exclusivity. We do not require total exclusivity, but do have specific competing galleries that we require exclusivity from. We also require zip code exclusivity. It is in the best interest of all parties involved not to over-saturate such a small market with one line of work.
Q: What are your sales terms?
A: Work is accepted on consignment with a 50/50 gallery commission. This commission covers marketing and exposure, packaging, display space, and staffing. You will never have to pay dues or put in hours at the gallery.
Q: What should I include in my submission?
A: You should send up to 10 digital images of your current work, an artist’s statement and bio if you have them. A website if you have one is also helpful. A description of your work, retail prices, phone number and email address.
Q: Where and how do I send my submission when it is ready?
A: We prefer email submissions to hard copies. firstname.lastname@example.org
