Artist Submission


Elder Gallery

Artist Submission Guidelines


Elder Gallery welcomes submissions from professional artists who live within the United States. We have chosen to limit the number of artists that we represent in order to provide the best representation as possible. We consider ourselves fortunate to receive hundreds of requests throughout the year. We view all submissions and do our best to respond. 

To be considered for representation by our gallery please adhere to the following criteria. In order to receive a response we ask that each item shown below be included.  It is preferrable that information be sent via email but standard US Mail is acceptable.

Step One:

  • Send complete Bio or resume

  • Send images of your work, preferably JPG via email; CDs and/or photographs via regular mail will be accepted. No slides.

  • Complete descriptions of each work to include size, medium, date of completion, and retail price.

  • List of any other gallery representation.

  • Self-addressed, stamped envelope large enough to return your materials should you request return of items. If no return envelope is included we will assume you do not wish to have your materials returned.

Step Two:

  • Your materials will be reviewed in a timely fashion. We will send you an email acknowledgment that your submission has been received and if we have interest, we will follow up with you.

  • Do not send actual artwork until asked to do so. If we feel that your work might be appropriate for our marketplace then we will contact you via email or telephone to ask for an opportunity to review your work in person.

  • If we do not choose your work for representation we will notify you via email and/or standard mail if you have provided an envelope for the return of your materials.

Step Three:

If your work is chosen for representation 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.

Additional information:

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.
