2016 Gifts in the Gallery Artist Application
Thank you for your interest in selling your work at Artistry's 2016 Gifts in the Gallery, taking place December 7 - 21!

Last year's sale was the most successful on record, with more than 7,500 attendees and over $50,000 in sales.
Our goal is to make participation in Gifts in the Gallery as easy as possible for artists. Artistry will set up, staff, and manage the sale; artists need not be present to sell their work.

Artistry will retain a 35% commission on all items sold. Artistry is not responsible or liable for stolen, lost, or damaged merchandise.
