HOW TO SUBMIT  ART AND CRAFTS
We are seeking artists and craft persons for two different kinds of relationships: (1) artist and craft persons who wish to be represented by displaying their work in our gallery and (2nd)on our online gallery. There is no charge for gallery representation or internet representation, other than a commission on sales negotiated between the Gallery and the Artist or Crafts Person. Be sure to read below before submitting your Art or Crafts. If you need help, have a question or do not understand, please contact us.

Who can submit?
Anyone who wants to exhibit their art and crafts at Eclectic Treasures and, or on eclecticgallery.net is welcome to submit. We are always seeking artists and crafts persons whose work would complement our existing artists� and crafts work, whose work we believe has a market here, and whose work would represent the gallery well and enhance our reputation. Obviously, we also want to be able to enhance your reputation!
What can be submitted?
Any style or medium of art may be submitted except that which is overtly pornographic or objectionable. All art is subject for approval for display. We reserve the right to reject any art that does not meet our needs and/or standards. Our primary focus is to find artists and craft persons with unique work to exhibit and sell. We are in the business of selling art and fine crafts, but we also are interested in exhibitions that raise consciousness and exposure of our customers to Art. We seek win-win-win relationships with artists where we: (a) serve the artist; and (b) delight our customers while expanding their vision of and exposure to fine art.
 Fees
There is no fee to submit or exhibit art. Once a buyer has purchased an art piece only then do we retain a percentage consignment fee, negotiated in advance with each artist and crafts person. Upon receipt of payment, the payment is held in our account until the art is received and inspected and the sale is approved. Upon receipt of the art, the Buyer has three days to have their own expert inspect the work and notify us that the work of art is acceptable and the sale is approved. Upon approval of the sale and funds successfully transferred (a maximum of 30 days), we will release the funds to the Seller less the consignment fee.
THE ARTIST'S RESPONSIBILITY
It is the artist's and crafts persons responsibility to price there artwork and craft. We do not appraise art. The Artists or Crafts person must take into account our fee as well as insurance, shipping and handling costs when pricing your art. The artist or crafts person is responsible for shipping and handling of artwork to the gallery and return off unsold items. Proper packaging and shipping is essential so the artwork does not get damaged during delivery.
Note for International Artists
We welcome International artists and crafts persons to our store and website. However, please remember that you are responsible for all shipping and handling fees if a buyer in another country purchases your art. Also, all checks from eclecticgallery.net made payable to artists will be made in U.S. currency.
THE ARTIST'S AGREEMENT
By submitting your art we will agree to terms, including that it is your original art and that you are the author and creator of that art. You cannot sell art on eclecticgallery.net or in Eclectic Treasures that another person (living or deceased) has created even if you are the owner. It must be your own original work of art. By submitting your art you are agreeing to pay for and provide proper shipping and handling of that art to the gallery. By submitting your art you are agreeing to our consignment fee that eclecticgallery.net will retain upon the placement of that art to a buyer. Before you ship art to the gallery, we will have a signed contract in place that spells out all terms. Do not ship unsolicited art to the gallery. The contract is linked below in pdf. form and can be fax back to us, please call before you fax.
If we accept your submission, your art will be featured on our website and or gallery and we will keep the right to advertise the images featured in eclecticgallery.net, giving proper recognition to the artist. We will do our best to market your work as well, and most of our artists can speak to how hard we work to help sell your work.
If you have any questions on these policies, please refer to the �Artist�s Listing and Sales Agreement� contract or contact us and we would be happy to discuss any terms to best work with you and help you market your art. We believe in working toward a win-win arrangement with artists and in maintaining the best possible ethics in working with artists and consumers.
Photo suggestions:
Take a well-lit photograph of your art piece. Your art should be the focus of the photograph, not the background. Depending on what type of art piece you are submitting, the background may be edited out. A nice background can complement an outdoor sculpture and �frame� it, but should not be more visible than your art.
We recommend using a digital camera to take your photograph. Remember that collectors will be viewing your art for purchase and you want to show them the best representation you can. If you are using a regular (non-digital) photograph you can scan it in a scanner and onto a computer. If you do not have a scanner and do not know anyone that does then check with your college or your local copy center to help you. Save it on a computer as a jpeg or gif file. These files need be no more than 500px wide or 96K, enough for clear images but small enough to load easily on the internet.
You can submit digital files to our email address  E-mail
Or, you can mail us a CD or DVD. Our mailing address:
 Yesterday's Memories Inc. dba.  Eclectic Treasures 794 K Sunset blvd. Corolla N.C. 27927

To represent your art we need to receive a completed, signed Artist's Listing and Sales Agreement form listing each art piece as well as images of each art piece. We may take new photos once the pieces arrive here to represent your work. These photos will be used for advertisements, promotions, and web sales. We also ask for picture and bio on all artist and crafts person that are accepted
