by our gallery you will be required to sign an “Artist Consignment Agreement” which outlines roles and responsibilities
of the artist as well as the gallery. We seek unique relationships with our artists and feel it important that each party
understands what is expected of them.
Elder Gallery does not exhibit
reproductions nor do we encourage our artists to allow their work to be reproduced.
We value the relationships that we have with our artists and do our
best to professionally promote their work. We realize that the success of our business begins with having exceptional, original
artwork available for our customers. Without our artists we don’t have a business.
