Can I exhibit only online for free now?
Yes you may and it’s for free if your art qualifies, we actually encourage you to take on the free plan and start gauging interest from our collectors and decide at will which plan or event you wish to consider. No strings attached you may remove your work anytime and we will never charge you, it’ll be renewed yearly so long you’re updating your work.
Do you get exclusivity on works posted online?
No we do not require exclusivity on artwork posted online, however when an artwork is spread all over the net it becomes less attractive to the collector, it’s always best to keep it more exclusive and avoid posting the same artwork on other sites especially public e-commerce platforms.
Why should I post my art here?
Unlike other online sites that provide you only a virtual gallery we offer the opportunity to exhibit in a real brick and mortar gallery to include effective online promotions and we only take a sales commission on artwork sold at the gallery not when you make direct sales through your online presence on our platform.
Is there a minimum number of artworks I can post?
Actually yes, we require a minimum of six artworks when creating your page, the free package allows you up to ten works and it’s unlimited for the paid packages See Here.
Why don’t you sell artwork online?
We are in effect a brick and mortar gallery, we do not have the necessary logistical tools to handle efficiently online orders especially when the work is with the artist in another geographical location around the world. We are considering offering this service in the near future to artworks exhibited or physically consigned at the gallery to ensure being able to fulfill orders efficiently.
Do you charge fees or commissions on sales?
We only charge sales commission on artworks we sell physically direct at the gallery, if the artwork is sold while exhibited at the gallery the gallery is entitled to fifteen percent commission. If you make direct sale with collector through our platform, we do not get involved nor charge any commission unless our service is required to facilitate the sales transaction and other logistics.

How long will you keep my work online for free?
