Q: What is the gallery commission on the pre-tax selling price of each work?

 A: 50% 

Q: How long is the exhibition contract for?

A: We are currently offering 30-day exhibition contracts. Depending on sales, a contract extension may be offered at the gallery's discretion.

Q: What if someone comes to the gallery and requests that I create a special commission?

A: The gallery will facilitate the arrangements and assess a 50% commission and facilitation fee on the pre-tax sales price of any commissioned pieces.  

Do I maintain the creative rights to my artworks?

A: Yes.

I created a work of art from a photograph that was not mine. Can I exhibit and sell the work in your gallery?

A: If you created a piece of art based on a photograph that you do not own the rights to, the creator of the photograph, i.e. the photographer, holds the copyright to the photo and, unless they've expressly given permission for its use, making a painting (or other work of art) based on the photo infringes on the photographer's copyright. So, unfortunately, unless you have received written permission from the original photographer who created the image, we will not be able to exhibit the piece.

Q: How much should I charge for my work?

A: In addition to covering the cost of your supplies, time and the cost of framing or stretching your work, you will also want to take the following into consideration when determining the price of your artwork.

  • There is a 50% gallery mark-up on each piece.
  • If you are not an established artist, your  pieces will simply not sell for the same amount as an established artists. Many times we are unable to accept excellent works because of overpricing by the artist.
