Gallery Guidelines

Please take note:  All work has to be the original work of theartist.  A Pretty Talent will not acceptor share responsibility for plagiarism or copying in any form of another person’swork, regardless the format.

Follow these simple steps to have your work displayed in the Gallery on APrettyTalent.com.
Send an emai to gallery@aprettytalent.com with the following information:
  1. The name under which you market your art;
  2. 5 Good quality photos (do not reduce the pixels to make the files smaller) of your completed works (1 photo each of 5 pieces):
2.1            Youshould pick 5 photos.  If I require more,I will ask.  Do not send more than five;
2.2            Photosmust be taken in good lighting conditions. Get as close as possible to the photo. The painting should fill the whole frame of the photo, preferablytouching all 4 sides in the lens.  Ifthis is not possible, the photo should be cropped on the computer;
2.3            No partof the painting may be cut off from the photo;
  1. If the files are too big to fit into one email, you can send more than one email;
  2. The title and details of each work must be clearly indicated (size, weight, framed/unframed, medium(s), surface, price plus 25% commission, any other relevant information (such as inspiration etc.);
  3. 2 or 3 sentences about yourself as artist;
  4. The subject line of the email must be your Artist name.
  5. We charge 25% commission on sales of work.
  6. If you sell the work privately, we require that you inform us immediately so that we can keep the stock registers current. You can use the same email to send me a photo and the detail of another piece you would like to put in the Gallery.
  7. The art remains with you and if it is sold, I will arrange with you to have it delivered either to A Pretty Talent, or to the client. Packaging, posting/delivery is to be paid by the client/buyer and is automatically calculated at checkout.
  8. From time to time, I will approach artists whose work is featured in the Gallery, to write a few paragraphs about themselves, which I will then post in this blog.  These artists then become the Featured Artists and we actively work towards promoting them and their works on various websites, social media and other platforms.  The artists will be informed of these actions.
  9. We reserve the right to market your work as widely as possible.
  10. If your work is selected for display in the Gallery, you must create an account on the shop.  This does not require any money.  It will simply ensure that we have all the necessary contact and shipping details on file when orders are placed.  You will be given an option to receive promotional material from the site.  You are welcome to untick this option, if that is your preference.  However, your own work may also appear on this material.
