I am having trouble with the registration application. It says my email address is already in use. What should I do?
You cannot use the same email address for both a collector and an artist account. If you have already registered your email address as a Collector and would like to open an Artist’s account please use a different email address.

Can artists living outside of the United States apply?
Yes. Our application is open to artists from around the world.

What does the application entail?
The application is a simple, two-step process that takes about 5 minutes. The first page is for your contact information and artistic background. The second page asks that you upload five sample images of your artwork. Your application will then be reviewed within 2 days.

Is there an application fee?
No. Registration is free.

What kind of artwork do you show?
We exhibit art in every genre, style, size, and media.

What is a CURATOR'S REVIEW
A curator's review is a professional’s opinion on your work. You will get more sales by adding a curator’s review next to your artwork.

Why?
More people tend to buy artwork with curator’s reviews. For collectors buying art online, it is often valuable to get a professional’s opinion.

Who?
The reviews are written by our leading curator, Louis Guillaume. He has been a Director of the Abstract Art Gallery for the past 2 years. He has over 7 years’ of experience working with emerging artists and curating exhibitions.

How?
The purpose of each review is to highlight the positive aspects of your work. The review will emphasize its originality, the mastering of a technique, the use of light, movement, and emotions; it will link your artwork to famous artists and will explain how it relates to the history of art.

Where?
Below is where the curator’s Review will be added next to your artwork.




Do I need to sign my artwork?
All art should be signed. It is important in identifying you as the creator. In addition, many collectors prefer to purchase signed artwork.

Does Abstract Art Gallery sell framed artwork?
We prefer to sell artwork unframed as our clients tend to like to frame their purchases themselves. That said, if you'd like to sell your art framed please let the visitors know by checking the “Framed” box when you upload the artwork.

May I place a link on my Abstract Art Gallery profile page to my personal website?
Yes.
