We receive many inquiries about selling artwork in our gallery. We want to be transparent about our processes, so we've published the following guidelines.
1.) We are a private, invitation-only gallery. We do not accept any members to that we have not expressly extended an invitation to join. We invite members who we assess are at the top of their game
2.) We operate on a wall rental basis and do not accept consignments. We currently do not charge commission. Each member rents a wall by the linear foot. We do not have employees, so our members/photographers operate the gallery and work a shift about once every two weeks
3.) Any new member must be recommended by someone who is already a member of the gallery
4.) Any new members must be unanimously approved by the four partners of the Sugarcreek Photography Gallery, LLC
5.) Before any new member is considered we would thoroughly evaluate the quality of their work, the subject matter of their art, and their social skills
6.) We would also ask around the art community for any thoughts or recommendations regarding the potential member (we reserve the right to do a background check)
7.) Everyone hanging art in the gallery must be making exceptional well-presented, ready-to-hang art that doesn't overly duplicate any art that we already have hanging. We are most interested in genres not currently displayed on our walls
8.) Everyone must have the social/business skills to meet, greet and talk to customers, handle sales transactions and be able to discuss the other member's art with potential customers
9.) To this end, before writing about joining us, potential members should first visit the gallery so they understand our existing genres and methods of print presentation. Once you've completed these steps and believe you're ready to sell your art in our gallery, feel free to send us a portfolio to SugarcreekPhotographyGallery@gmail.com
