As commercial galleries are all run by individual companies or people there are no black and white rules for submission. However, there are some basic steps that you can follow to make sure you’ve covered their requirements.

Applying to sell your work with an art gallery is much like applying for a job. As the curator/gallery owner will read dozens of applications a week it is very important to make it easy for them to appraise your application.

It is useful to bear in mind before contacting the gallery that the time of the curator/gallery owner is their most precious commodity. As most commercial gallery curators/owner also take on the role of the selling the art work. They do not have the time to trawl through artists websites to seek out the artists images that they are submitting. In fact, if you only send a link to your website when submitting to a gallery, you’ll be lucky to get an acknowledgment email back.
