All artwork must first be submitted via application form, see instructions above.

*  For accepted artworks, completed tags should be dropped off (or hung when applicable) with your artwork.  * Two tags for each piece submitted.  One will stay on the back of the painting, one will go on the wall next to it.
* Lightly tape both tags to the back of your work.  Blue painters tape works best.

*  Forms (Waivers) must be signed. See link below.

* ArtPush public location art requires Venmo or Paypal sign with payment information and a cell number where the buyer can reach you. These locations do not sell your work for you.  You are in charge of collecting your own money and getting the art to the buyer.  Each call for art has specified instructions.

Q: How much should I price my work?
A: Artwork prices vary. The majority of our art sells between the range of $80-$150. However, work has sold for as much as $1300.  If you want your work to move, price accordingly. We have, but typically do  not show work priced over $2000.

The only prints allowed would be high quality, signed, framed giclée’s.

* High quality giclée’s sell from around $100 to $300 or more.  The galleries standard commission on giclée’s is same as originals, 30%.  Giclée’s. require their own individual artist’s tag as well.
