Artists set the retail price of their work (the price the piece will sell for). Artists will be paid 60% of the retail price for their sold work.

Each artist is responsible for the cost of packaging and shipping submitted works to and from the gallery and for insurance while in transit. Works must be properly packaged in reusable packaging.
