1. Our Mission
1.1 Mission Statement
We believe true art tells a story or depicts an emotion and must be viewed up close and personal to be realized -
not as a thumbnail preview on a web page. Gallery Gig is committed to help artists find venues where fine art
can be viewed in public spaces then simplify the art buying experience. Only then can art impact our lives and the artist be
rewarded for creating it.
1.2 Our commitment to the Artist
GalleryGig.com was founded and developed by a frustrated artist disappointed by the available ways to show and sell art.
- Art Galleries required exclusive contracts, monthly fees and 50% of the sale price.
- On-line art galleries are too impersonal, massive, and often make more from up-front fees than from selling any art.
- No one knows about my personal web site so it had very low traffic.
- The extra work involved in selling art in local coffee shops and venues caused the most ideal places turn me away.
Gallery Gig has no contracts and charges 10% + credit card fees. While we allow venues and curators to take a
percentage of each art sale, we guarantee the art's take will never fall below 50%. Supporting artists is good for
local business. Using Gallery Gig simplifies the process and increases the number of places willing to work with local artists.
1.3 Our commitment to the Venue
True art inspires people, and when your customers connect with the art in your space, they connect with you. Gallery Gig
helps you make this connection with more art options, less risk, less effort, and a far better way to insure your fee
1.4 Our commitment to the Local Art Gallery
Gallery Gig is also committed to traditional art galleries! With attendance declining by 2% per year for the last 10 years,
many local galleries are closing up shop. Gallery Gig lets gallery owners use their expertise to manage art displays in
venues all over town. You set your rate and Gallery Gig collects it and pays you when the art sells.

2.2 Association between members (Artists, Venues and Curators).
Our members are welcome to create working contracts between themselves, but where an existing contract does not exist
the following applies.
The venue cannot be held liable or responsible for damage to works of art, or the loss of art, on display at the venue.
If this is a concern the Artist can elect to find an insurance policy to cover damage or loss of their art.
The artist cannot be held liable or responsible for damage to the venue or individuals at the venue
due to the display, mounting, moving or removal of art at the venue.
If this is a concern the Venue should speak with their insurance agent about coverage in this situation.

may keep the art or use it as assets of the venue. In the event the venue closes, the art must be returned to the

in any direction. Framed art greater than 12 inches must use Plexiglas or tempered safety glass.

All art should be securely fastened to the wall (pedestal, shelf or easel) and verified
by the venue AND the artist (or their appointed curators) so as to not fall on customers
at the venue.
