What should I do to start selling my artworks at Art Gallery The One?
We are delighted that you have decided to sell your work at Art Gallery The One!
First, the artist should send an email with their resume and at least 5 images of their artworks or the link to their social media for evaluation by our specialists. email@example.com
This type of information can increase the chances of being noticed by our curators and clients. Once approved, a date will be scheduled for you to visit the gallery, meet in person, and sign the contract. Subsequently, you will be notified of the exhibition date at Art Gallery The One.

How does shipping work?
Once the sale is made, you will receive an email with the details. If the artwork is in the gallery at the time of sale, we handle the packaging and shipping. These costs will be included in the sale price. If the artwork is in your possession, we would schedule a date and time for our courier to pick it up (exclusive to artists residing in Portugal). If you are outside of Continental Portugal, you don't have to worry about shipping costs; our collector is responsible, and you only need to cover the packaging cost. We provide shipping documents and any labels you may need.
How will I be paid?
The artwork will take between a week and 15 days to be packed, plus a week in transit, depending on the destination.
