Are you a book artist interested in selling work through The Shop at MCBA? Our Shop staff reviews prospective consignment goods on a rolling basis. This is a great opportunity for both established and emerging artists to display and sell their work. Consignment terms are 70/30 (artists retaining 70% of sales). Please review the Consignment Agreement before applying.
To submit your work for consideration, please use the submission form below. You may upload up to 8 digital images of your work (JPG format, 72dpi, max 1MB each); if you wish to submit fewer than 8 works, simply leave the remaining fields blank. Please name your files lastname_image1.jpg, lastname_image2.jpg, and so on.
Below each image upload area is a text field; in that field, provide a description of the item pictured. Please also include your intended retail price for that item, noting the 70/30 split.
When you click “Submit your application,” a spinning circle will appear; this indicates that your materials are being uploaded. If the circle spins for longer than a few minutes, this may mean there was a technical issue with your application. The most common error is that the image files are too large. Please confirm that your files are all under 1MB each, and if necessary, resize your files and try again.
If you have continued technical issues with the submission process, you may send your submission materials to firstname.lastname@example.org; include “Consignment application” in the subject of your email. Thank you!
