Q: Are you currently accepting submissions?
A: Yes, I am currently receiving artwork submissions for consideration for the Austin and Houston Collections. If you already have art representation in both Austin and Houston, please wait until we add new collections. If you have representation in Austin, you can be considered for the Houston Collection. If you have representation in Houston, you can be considered for the Austin Collection. We work diligently to recognize all existing representation agreements. Please send 5 samples or less via email in files no larger than 600KB.
Q: Do artists need to be from or reside in the city the collection supports?
A: No, you do not have to reside in these cities to be in the collection. In fact, I hope to expand the exposure of artists to regions where they are not currently living or represented. However, I do try to include a few artists from the city the collection supports to continue the “support the community” theme.
Q: What about shipping?
A: Currently, artists keep the artwork in their home or studio until it sells, at which time you will take the artwork to your nearest UPS store for packing, insurance and shipping using the shipping destination information I provide you. As works are accepted in collections, you need to get shipping, packing and insurance estimates for each item from your local UPS store. For shipping options on your artwork page on ArtfulGalleries.com, we can provide a few shipping options such as local pickup (available only in your location), local delivery (same) and shipping within the continental US. Once you are accepted, I will provide further details on how to get these estimates.
Q: What types of artwork will Artful Galleries consider.
A: We are looking for contemporary works, though not necessarily abstract. I love to have a range of representational and abstracted works, and am currently looking for figurative works to add to the collections, as well as 3-D works such as ceramics and small sculptures. Items larger that 40″ in any dimension are not suitable at this time. Also, we will not be representing jewelry artists at this time.
