Gift Shop Call-to-Artists
Prospectus / Online Application
The Art League of Lincoln is searching for regional Fine Artists of all mediums for our gift shop.
Are you an Artist? We are specifically searching for accomplished artists living in our area who yearn to share their creations with other artists and the public. As a first step, we are working to identify the skilled and talented artists we know that live among us… is that you?
Some benefits of being a Gift Shop Artist
We hope you will take advantage of this exciting opportunity to display and sell your art, to meet and interact with other local artists, and to promote the arts to the public!
Our gift shop features unique original art by multiple local artists with an ever-changing selection of items. We invite you to apply for inclusion in this exclusive venue, so new items can be reviewed by our gift shop team. We are currently seeking work in all forms of fine art, including handmade jewelry, fiber/textile/wearable art, ceramics, fused/stained glass, photography, repurposed/found object art, sculpture, original drawings/paintings/mixed media (no larger than 11" x 14"), matted prints, paper art, and greeting cards.
Your artwork must be original and created by you. We remind artists that the gallery is open to all ages, so please do not submit subjects that are "adult only' in nature. Artists should submit up to 10 images as examples of their work via the online application; more than one medium may be submitted if desired. The gift shop coordinator will contact you if your artwork is selected for an in-person review. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing your creativity!
Accepted artists must be (or become) a member of ALL. Normal business hours are Wed thru Sat, 11 am to 3 pm. Participating gift shop artists price their own items (up to $150), with a 30% commission on sales retained by the gallery; payment to the artist will be made by the 10 th of each month.
