Gelato! Artist’s Terms

Who can submit ?

Anyone who wants to exhibit their art to Gelato! Collective Fine Art Gallery, Gelato! Art Salon or The Gelato! Website may submit.

If my work is accepted to the Art Salon will it be displayed on the website ?

All artists who have been picked to exhibit in a Gelato! Show will have their work posted for a limited time in the from which we choose and which is technically possible at the moment. This may be in a form of a group page with two images per artist placed under the date of the event. Or it may be in the Gelato! Art Salon Photo memories with photos of your art hanging at the show. The group page will be up for a minimum of 4 months and either taken down or regulated to the archive.

I see artists with their own page on the website, can I have my own page on the website ?

Only artists who have been formally accepted into the Gelato! Collective or have paid a yearly membership can have their own page. At the moment we are not funded and it is obviously unfeasible for the collective to support artists who do not work with or support in some way monetarily the efforts of the collective. We’ve tried it. It doesn’t work and we don’t have the resources. Gelato! Membership information, applications and applicable benefits will be posted and available for the general public soon.

What can be submitted ?

Any style or medium of art may be submitted except that which is hated filled, racist, or otherwise contrary to common respect for others. All art is subject for approval for display in the Gelato! Art Salon. We reserve the right to reject any art which does not meet our needs and/or standards.

Each artist may submit and exhibit up to 8 pieces from which 2- 4 works of art at a time. will be chosen for display depending on available space All artwork submitted must be available for sale, excluding installation pieces, which is at the discretion of the artist.
