Shipping/Insuring art: The buyer is responsible for shipping.  The Agora Culture will use art handlers for packing and shipping artwork.  Insurance of art work is covered under The Agora Culture’s preferred shipping companies.

Payment: In the event that your work is sold through The Agora Culture Site, The Agora Culture pays artists 10 business days after successful deliver and acceptance of artwork by the buyer. 
Pricing: The Agora Culture splits the retail price of artwork 70/30 with the artist (receiving 70% of the proceeds) The Agora Culture is compensated through this pricing structure and never marks pricing above retail. Therefore, it is critical that the artists keep their retail pricing consistent throughout all venues (i.e. co-ops, galleries, studio, websites, etc.). 
Contracts and Representation: The Agora Culture does not represent artists.
The Agora Culture is a multi-cultural arts platform focused on fine artwork. Its goal is to connect artists with a diverse array of new and experienced collectors and provide education on how to preserve, protect and leverage investment grade pieces of art.  Our platform consists of an online marketplace, education portal, and a market research center. The site currently features selected artists: including Mequitta Ahuja a world renowned mix media artist and Alexandria Smith who was selected by the Huffington Post's "Black Artists: 30 Contemporary Art Makers Under 40 You Should Know”.
