Submission Fee:

$15 per entry

Commission: 25%


We encourage submitting pieces that are $50 and under – we want to have 75% of gallery stocked with stuff at truly affordable price points to encourage multiple sales and help artists get their work recognized! Please note that if you have “collections” (for example of pottery, etc) than the standard $15 submission fee per piece will not apply – depending on the item, the submission for collections will be $25 for the entire collection.


As we approach the holiday season, Design Studio Art Gallery is, once again, curating a unique holiday gift show to offer holiday shoppers new gift-giving ideas! We want to stress the concept of buy local and buy original! We have a fabulous community of local artists, and we are going to transform the gallery into a shopping destination for local residents to purchase original art pieces!

Please contact us NOW to discuss putting your work in this unique exhibit! We need to start planning this now, because we are going to totally transform our space into a holiday shopping destination!

Even though we are aiming to get most of the inventory priced at an “affordable price point” to encourage sales of original art for gifts, if you have a piece or pieces that you would like for us to consider that are at a different price point, please submit those as well!

We want to include items ranging from pottery to limited edition photograph prints to hand-crafted bowls, jewelry, and more! We want diversity in style, uniqueness is subject matter, and originality in items, and we want to put a lot of stuff in the space! Our goal is to transform Design Studio Art Gallery into a retail shop for the holiday season that specializes in awesome local artists’ works and stage it with the flair that only designers and artists can!
