Originality - We have a strict policy to only offer our clientele original works. Each piece accepted by the gallery must be and is under contract to have never been (or will be) printed or reproduced. This gives our buyers the added benefit, knowing that their new acquisition will never be owned in any way by someone else. They will never be in that awkward situation of walking into someone else’s home and seeing their original piece hanging on someone else’s wall.
Application - All of our applicants go through a strict selection process. Starting with the application. Once we receive (via email or in person) the completed application, our acquisitions team reviews and researches, giving our board complete confidence in the pieces, the artist, as well as the proposed pricing. Due to the amount of applicants we receive, any incomplete application packages will not be accepted. Once the review is complete and our team is confident in you and your work, your application is submitted to our board. Our board is made up of longtime art professionals, collectors and our owner for approval. Final piece(s) selection rests with our owner, Mr. Joshua T. Atkinson. A collector for over 15 years, he ultimately chooses piece that speak to him. Understanding that art is a truly magical and almost spiritual purchase, Mr. Atkinson looks for the “voice” inside the piece.
The Artist – We are proud to be representing artists from approximately 15 different countries. All of our artists are living (1 exception) and continue to produce. At the end of the day the piece that speaks to the client gets the check. Age, gender, nationality, religion, race, sexual orientation and the artist’s name are all wonderful things that may be useful when advertising but they have no bearing on this gallery’s decision. We do not require any kind of formal art education or study, nor do we require a long history of sales or exhibitions. What we do require is professionalism, dedication, continued creation, originality, integrity and appropriate pricing.
Cost of representation will be based on the value of the work you submit the gallery. After we review your application we will be in touch with you and a formal contract will be drawn up based on you and your work.
Cost - Signed artists are contracted for one calendar year. A one-time $250 administration fee will be due upon contract acceptance. This cost guarantees you a year of representation, your artwork is insured, promoted, and marketed to sell. If your contract is extended or we continue to represent you and your work after the initial contract is up there will not be another fee.
