Artist FAQs

collapse

Our consignment agreement is non-exclusive and our commissions are low (we charge 10% vs. most competitors who charge 35% to 50%). Many Artfare artists actively work with galleries and the non-exclusive/low commission model allows our artists to use Artfare to promote and sell artwork simultaneously exhibited at a physical gallery. If the piece sells through a gallery, or any other channel besides Artfare, you don’t owe us any commission. We believe our model allows us to be more flexible for artists, as well as credible in marketing and promoting art relative to some of the existing platforms with higher commissions and more commercially driven marketing practices.
