Artist FAQ

Why sell my art with First Art Gallery?

Simply put, First Art Gallery gives you a risk free quality online platform with a highly professional marketing team.
The gallery is supported by a team with over 20 years Fine Art, Interior Design, Advertising and Online Marketing experience. Appreciating good art and knowing how to reach the right audience both offline and online is what we do. Our commission structure is very low and will cost you nothing if we don't make a sale.

How do I sell my art with First Art Gallery?

Artists wishing to sell their art through First Art Gallery must submit an application for consideration. All artists are selected by application only or where they have been directly invited by the gallery.

How do I submit an application?

Applications can be submitted by completing our online application form. You will be required to submit information about yourself as an artist and discuss your style and passion. You will also be required to submit a minimum of three samples of your artwork for review. We will assess your work and extend an invitation to you if we feel you may be a good fit for the gallery. There is no cost for submitting an application.

What if I was not approved by the gallery?

Firstly, we request that you do not take it personally. On average we have found that about 50% of the applications submitted are not approved. This is by no means a reflection on our view of your work; it simply means that we do not believe the samples you sent in are a good fit for the gallery. We request that artists stay in touch and keep us updated as their artwork evolves.

What artwork does the gallery accept?

We are currently only accepting original wall art, which includes paintings, drawings, photography and limited edition signed prints. We are not accepting any 3D art or sculptures at this stage.

What does it cost to sell my art with First Art Gallery?

The display and set up of each artists artwork in the gallery is completely free. The gallery works purely off a commission basis on any artwork sold directly by the gallery.

As an approved artist of First Art Gallery, can I list my artwork on other websites?

Yes. We do not require exclusivity. Although we would love to be the one to sell your art, we also do not believe in placing any restrictions on the artist and would like to see you be successful. We do however request that you notify us immediately when you have sold your artwork elsewhere so that we can update our records. We also ask that you ensure that the price and details of your paintings is consistent across all websites. Inconsistency will not appear professional to your potential buyer.

Can I add a link to other websites on my profile or artwork pages?

No. Unfortunately we do not allow any links to any external websites, galleries, personal portfolio websites or social media pages that are not directly owned by First Art Gallery.

What if I have an exhibition booking and would like to remove my art for a short period?

Not a problem, we request that you simply notify us and we will make your work inactive until your show is completed. We support any gallery representation you may have running and would love to be kept updated on your career highlights.

What if I have other questions?

Please feel free to contact us through our contact form, or include your questions in the application form.
