This does not apply for customised orders. Customised orders are non-refundable once your order is confirmed.

The artwork I want to order has been sold?

1340Gallery offers a commission service.

We will contact the artist to see if they would like do a similar piece to what was sold and then put you and the artist in contact.

Who can submit art to 1340Gallery?

1340Gallery supports the work of all emerging artists. However, at this point, registration is on an invitation basis only. Later, our platform will be open for all artists above 18 years of age.

We review applications on a weekly basis and if accepted, you will be contacted by a member of the team following our next Application Review. Registration on invite is free of charge. If accepted for presentation, you will be required to read and agree to our Terms and Conditions of presentation, before your profile is made live online, or before we can start selling your work.

Do I need to send you professional photographs of the artwork?

No that’s not necessary… but do make sure you portray your artwork the best way possible.

What type of art do you take?

We currently accept a variety of mediums, including: painting, collage, photography, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, mixed media, limited edition prints, installation, and open edition prints.

Do you accept photographs?

We do, but the photographer needs to be ok with the print being limited-edition.

Does the art have to be framed?

No. That’s up to you. But if you are to frame your pieces please make sure you use quality frames. We generally feel unframed pieces work best as buyers taste varies. (PS. Please do not send us framed pieces if we have not accepted them in submission.)

How does the pricing work?

You set the price. When setting the price, take into account how long it has taken you to make the piece and the cost of materials you have used.

Do I need to pay 1340Gallery to be on the platform?

No. If you sell an original artwork, 1340Gallery won’t take any commission on the final sale price. We believe that the artist has the right to keep all profits from their work.

1340Gallery is a platform designed specifically to support artists, by giving them 100% of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork.

If I sell an artwork, when do I get paid?

1340Gallery makes payments to artists on the last working day of every month (for any art sold in the previous 4 weeks).
