Tips on selecting your work:

  • Choose work that can retail at $500 or less

  • You are welcome to submit work that is either holiday themed or you think would sell well during the season. If you are looking to apply to sell artwork, please apply to one of our regular open calls when they are announced.

  • Work that is made in multiples is preferred.

  • We are a VERY small mall. No room for storage, so we will only take small batches of work from each artist.
