- Website visitors & customers can contact the artist directly to purchase artwork. (If privacy is a concern, and artists do not want their personal contact information listed on the website, the Gallery will coordinate communications and purchases)
- No Inventory will be held by the gallery other than their own collection.
- Artist / consignors should be prepared to negotiate the sale directly with the customer including all terms, price, shipping, pickup, delivery, insurance, returns, costs, etc.
- Regarding shipping, I encourage using your local UPS who will provide estimates based on size, weight, and destination. UPS will pick-up, pack, insure, and ship for you and your customer. Or simplify and consider determining a flat fee to ship, ie. Small $10?, medium $50?, large $150?.
