ARTISTS’

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why should an artist go with Mid-AtlanticArtists.com over other online galleries?

Mid-Atlantic Artists started four years ago as the successful gallery, The Artists' Emporium, located in Havre de Grace, MD. Despite being one of the largest commercial galleries in the Mid-Atlantic, we couldn't house a large fraction of the booming artistic talent in our region. The owner and curator, Robert Buden, decided in 2019 to begin building a platform online to showcase the brilliance of our thriving arts scene and support our local and regional artists and communities.

The arts inspire beauty, hope, and creativity nationally, internationally, statewide, and in local neighborhoods. They are indisputably valuable, intrinsically and financially. The 2010 Census data indicates that 43% of the most affluent counties in the U.S. are in the densely populated Mid-Atlantic area. With this financial backing, artists and the arts can continue to flourish and benefit their local communities. Artists can be searched for by county, providing customers with an ability to shop locally while giving artists visibility in their own hometown.

Lastly, Mid-Atlantic Artists aims to reduce the hassle of the online work the artist does to market their art. All that is needed from the artist is to provide the images and the information about themselves and their art. We will upload each artwork, create your artists page, work on search engine optimization, market the artwork on social media, answer customer questions, completely handle the print sales, and maintain a functional and beautiful webspace for your customers to visit.

How does an artist apply for representation on Mid-AtlanticArtists.com?
 

You can review the submission process here. We encourage artists of all levels to submit their art, and we will review your application and respond within 5 days.

How do returns work?

We have a 15-day customer return policy. Should a customer, for whatever reason, wish to return a piece - perhaps the piece got damaged en route or they changed their mind - the gallery will handle the return process. The customer will notify Mid-Atlantic Artists, and we will then contact the artist to inform them that the customer is shipping the work back to the artist.

How does shipping work?

Mid-Atlantic Artists covers the cost of shipping, in the exception of oversized or overweight art. The collector will cover the additional costs of shipping oversized art. Additionally, Mid-Atlantic artists ship prints/reproductions directly to the collector.

Artists will be responsible for packaging material and proper shipment of their original artwork. They must keep their art available for immediate purchase, meaning that original art submitted to Mid-Atlantic Artists cannot be in brick and mortar exhibitions or shows. Sold art must be shipped by the artist within 5 days of the sale.

Proof of shipping, including tracking number, needs to be emailed to Mid-Atlantic Artists at time of shipping. Mid-Atlantic Artists will be responsible for contacting the customer with shipping details. Failure to ship art will result in a cancellation of the sale.

What will artists need to submit along with artwork once accepted?

An artist will be asked to fill out and submit a Form W9, an Artists' Contract, and a Headshot for the artists' page. Additionally, if the artist is offering prints/reproductions to be fulfilled through Mid-Atlantic Artists, we will request 200 MB Images of applicable artwork.

Once all materials are received, please allow 5 days for artwork to be uploaded onto the website. Artists will be provided with an Intake Form (and a Sample Form as a guideline) when they are accepted. These intake forms will need to be completed with every image submission. 

What do I need to do to submit images of my artwork?

  • We prefer PNG photographs, and also accept JPGs.
  • Images for original art are sized 2MB or approximately 4" x 6" at 125 DPI (Dots Per Inch).  
  • Images for prints/reproductions are sized 200MB or approximately 24" x 36" at 300 DPI.  We can accept these through Google Docs or Drive.  sRGB or Adobe RGB and in 8-bit-channel colour are the best options for prints.

We highly recommend using Adobe creative cloud or Picmonkey, which has a free option, for image sizing.

Images need to be clear and well -lit without shadows and with color accuracy.  Indoor lightbulbs often have their own color temperature which can alter the appearance of art.  We recommend using sunlight to illuminate your art to get the digital colors closer to the original work.  Images should be photographed at eye level, with even horizon lines to prevent distortion.

Images should be cropped tightly to 2-dimensional art.  Frames and glass should not be in the photograph.

if photographing your art is challenging, hiring a photographer to capture your portfolio or collection is a great investment.

What types of prints or reproductions does Mid-Atlantic Artists offer?

While you do not have to offer you art on all of these surfaces, we recommend giving the customer as many options as possible.  A wide variety of print options may help a customer achieve a specific look they are going for in their office or home. 

Our current print materials include:

Photo paper - Glossy Photo Paper (Kodak Glossy)

Canvas

Smooth Fine Art Paper - Moab Entrada Bright Rag

Textured / Water Fine Art Paper - Epson Cold Press Bright White
