Artists

Where does the art come from? How are artists selected?

The work we represent is highly curated, we have spent years developing relationships and also sourcing what we feel is an interesting mix of contemporary art. We seek out serious artists who have some formal training, many are MFAs and exhibit in other galleries nationally and internationally. We look for artists that have a good body of work that has an appeal for the home and office, portfolio are usually extensive and there is continuity to the works. Interested artists can send us an email from the Artists page and we will try to look through their work. We cannot respond to everyone who applies.

How does my rental support these artists?

Every rental and purchase of artwork from our site is shared with the artists who made the work. We take a portion to cover our business expenses and the rest goes to the artist, so they can do what they love, make more art!

Who are they?

Our artists have been curated, hand-selected, to participate in our program. Most have graduated from art schools and have experience exhibiting nationally or internationally already. We have a few graduate student’s work in the collection as well. We look for a cohesive body of work with many available works, or work that can be printed on demand, so that we have plenty of work for the collectors to choose from. We are taking submissions via email on a rolling basis but we cannot get back to everyone who applies.

I’m an artist, what should I look for? Who should I talk to?

Go to our Artists page and send us an email with your website/portfolio link and someone will get back to you within a few days or emailing. S
