Are you a Michigan artist interested in showcasing your work through Paint Creek Center for the Arts? The Art Market is a contracted consignment opportunity reserved exclusively for Michigan creators- especially those residing in Southeast Michigan counties. Located on the first floor of PCCA, the Art Market offers a broad variety of original artwork, limited reproductions and handmade goods ranging from $2 to $300 retail price. All merchandise is curated by the Manager of Galleries, and contracts are offered on a 30-day, 90-day, or one year display period. There are no booth rentals, lease, or other up-front fees to participate in the Art Market.
Payment to the artist is issued on a monthly basis for sales made in the month prior. The percentage is determined by the artists membership status with PCCA and the retail price of the item. Artists are listed on PCCA’s website, social media, 1.5K+ recipient eNewsletter each month, as well as outside print and digital marketing whenever available.
Sound like a good fit for you? Please email our Gallery Manager, Jenny, at [email protected] for more information about availability and details. Don’t forget to include the following information in your email: your name, your website (if you have one), some pictures of your work and how much you typically sell them for. If you have an Etsy, Big Cartel, or other online store it is helpful to include that information as well.
