Thank you for considering a submission to the GTAC Retail Art Print Program! The goals of the program are to promote our artist members, increase foot traffic at the GTAC art store and art gallery, and offer high-quality meaningful art for sale to our Sherman, Denison and greater Texoma community! Here’s how you can participate:
1) Select up to three pieces of your work that you feel would be commercially successful as part of the program, and submit using the form below. The three pieces may be coordinated so that they could be presented as a triptych, or they could be stand alone pieces. (NOTE: The program is available to current GTAC member artists, contributing artists, and apprentice artists only. If you are confused about your membership level, please reach out to us!)
2) Once you’ve submitted work for consideration, wait to hear from us. It may take a while, so please don’t get discouraged! Once we’ve processed your submission we will connect with you to find a time for you to bring your pieces in to the gallery to be photographed. You will retain the original piece; however, by submitting you are agreeing to forfeit the reproduction rights to the GTAC for the duration of the piece’s inclusion on the program. That means that the only place in the whole wide world where anyone can get a print of the submitted piece is at the GTAC! How cool is that?
3) Once the work is photographed, we will develop a library of digital files and size offerings of the piece based upon the original size. Our goal is to offer the prints at sizes that are consistent with standard, off the shelf mat and frame sizes, so some cropping may occur. If cropping is necessary we will ask for your final approval before marketing the piece.
4) While the archival quality inkjet prints can be produced on-demand, we have a space set aside at the gallery that will serve as a retail area. We will produce samples of all the work to display in the retail store. The prints will be packaged with a half-page bio so that your fans can find you and hopefully buy some original work! When the sales start rolling in, the GTAC will retain 85% of the income, and you will receive 15%. We will notify you on a monthly basis of potential sales.
Let us know if you have any questions about the program! Or, if you’re ready, submit below!
