Terra Toys is opening an art gallery, and we need artists!
We are looking for art by children of any and all ages. If you are interested in submitting your artwork, and the art meet the requirements listed below, send images to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please provide your name, the size of your piece, your materials, and your price.
In the spirit of Terra Toys, the content of submissions should include toys, fairy tales, fantasy, whimsical imagery and imaginary creatures. No copyrighted or licensed images, please.
Oil, acrylic, pencil, and ink are preferred. Other materials may be used, but in a professional manner — for example, a collage or charcoal piece must be sealed with a coat to prevent peeling or smudging.
We ask that your submission be no smaller than 4×4 inches and no larger than 48×48 inches. However, we make exceptions for exceptional pieces.
Your art piece must be ready for the gallery! All pieces should have a hanging device on the back to go up on our gallery wall. Drawings must be framed; canvas art does not need a frame, but it is highly encouraged. Canvas art should have staples on the back, not sides.
If selected, your artwork will be displayed at Terra Toys for up to 90 days. If the piece does not sell in the 90-day timeframe, it must be picked up by the artist.
Terra Toys takes a standard gallery consignment of 50% of the selling price. "Consignment" means that neither party gets paid until the artwork sells. If you want $20 for your art, we will charge $40 to the purchaser. When deciding on your price, make sure it is fair, but worth it.
We will only consider art submitted through email; please do not bring your pieces into the store for art gallery consideration.
We look forward to hearing from you!
