Artist Submissions


Time is the only luxury we cannot afford


The Gagliardi Gallery presents established and emerging artists from all around the world ranging from Old Masters to contemporary talents. Our policy in relation to living artists who wish to present their work in our gallery is to do a trial period of one month. Art is very subjective and so we need to make sure that the artist is right for the gallery and received well by the market. Considering the number of applications we receive, we cannot afford the "wait and see" attitude and so we accelerate the process through exposure.

How it works:

  • An artist provides an artwork (approved by the gallery curators) on a sale or return basis for one month (commission to be established on an individual basis).
  • Prices and sizes of artworks must be approved by the gallery and discussed with the artist.
  • Four artworks of different artists are published on a full page of the Official Saatchi Museum Magazine to create interest and test the market.
  • If sufficient interest is gathered or the artwork is sold in the trial period, the gallery will continue its collaboration with the artist.
  • The gallery will also print 200 A4 leaflets for use in the gallery that includes a critique by the International Confederation of Art Critics, the artwork image and artist biography.
This prestigious magazine exposure benefits the artist, regardless of the outcome of the trial period, and so the related costs are split between the gallery and the artist. The artist also receives 10 copies of the magazine and a certificate of exhibition from the gallery.
