We curate our collection with a focus on artists who have found their unique voice and who are creating consistent, quality work. Similar to traditional galleries, we work on a consignment basis, which gives us and the artists flexibility to experiment with different pieces and to adjust our collection based on feedback. Our commission is 50% of retail sale price, and the artist sets the retail price.
We give preference to Chicagoland-based artists, and we work directly with artists, not with agents or representatives. It is helpful if you visit the shop or peruse our website to get a sense of our aesthetic before you submit. We require:
Cover letter with bio, artist statement and/or CV
JPGs of your work (at least 3 but as many as 10), specifications: 500px x 500px square
Link to your online portfolio, website, or online shop
Dimensions of work
Price points for each piece
Please submit to our dedicated submissions email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions with incomplete information or submissions sent to the incorrect email address will not be considered.
We don’t review artwork on a walk-in basis. You must submit via email for consideration.
You will receive an auto-reply from us confirming that your submission has been received. When we have an opening that is a good fit for you, we will contact you and set up an appointment. If you have not heard from us within a year, please feel free to resubmit with new work. If it has been under a year, you do not need to resubmit to us unless you have a big update to announce – we love to see new websites, online shop launches and new design lines. And by all means please do add us to your e-newsletter contact list!
