We have received many inquiries about selling artwork in our gallery, and for that we are thankful. We do, however, have an evaluation process as well as a set of guidelines that we ask prospective artists to follow.
First, we ask that you please visit our gallery to observe if your work is appropriate for our space, as well as helping to contribute to our vision. We are a private, invitation-only gallery, where all new members are generally invited and approved by the four partners of the Sugarcreek Photography Gallery, LLC.
Our vision is to seek high quality artwork from artists and photographers who excel at genres not currently on our gallery walls. The prospective artist would have a proven track record of creating inspired artwork, as well as winning juried exhibitions, and have extensive experience in printing and presenting their work.
Our members are also active in promoting their artwork on social media and their websites, so experience there counts.
We operate on a wall rental basis and do not accept consignments. Our artists rent and fill either a 4-foot or 8-foot wall to merchandise their work.
We do not charge commission, nor do we have employees. Our gallery photographers and artists operate the gallery and work a shift about once every two weeks.
Our artists are also our sales staff, so they must have the social/business skills to meet, greet and talk to customers, handle sales transactions and be able to discuss the other members’ art with our customers.
If you feel like you meet these conditions, please let us know (and that you’ve read this webpage) in your correspondence. Feel free to send us a portfolio, a link to your website and links to your social media accounts to SugarcreekPhotographyGallery@gmail.com.
