  • Five (5) to fifteen (15) images in jpg format of your work with dimensions and materials listed.
    Please include a range of pieces to best assess your work.

  • Retail prices for the works submitted.
    Please take into account that Asher Gallery is a 50/50 split consignment gallery.

  • An artist statement under 200 words describing the processes used in the creation of your work and the ideas or concepts that you are interested in communicating.
The following categories of craft can be submitted to the Retail Coordinator:

  • Objects of clay, fiber, wood, metal, glass and other repurposed or recycled materials

  • Craft using manufactured parts, pieces or fabrics if these materials are subordinate to the total design and production of the end product

  • Kits, class or workshop projects will not be considered.
Please note that although work might meet all of the criteria at an acceptable level, the Retail Manager reserves the right to refuse work based on suitability to the atmosphere of the Asher Gallery spaces, the number of artists and available space.

Artists may continue to submit presentations to the Retail Manager as new bodies of work are created, as these will be considered separately from original submissions.
