Art in the show must be for sale and must remain in the show until the pick up date or until it is sold. Artists give Kansas City Stockyards Gallery permission to use images for promotional purposes. Checks for artwork sold will be available during the pick up dates, or can be mailed to artists on those dates. Gallery takes a 40% commission. All artwork must be original and available for sale. Artists agree that all artwork is of their own creation. Artwork not picked up by artists or shipped artwork without a return shipping label become property of the gallery within 30 days of the pickup dates.


Artists that are shipping their work - Artists are required to put a return shipping label inside the box if they are shipping work. No packing peanuts allowed. Artwork should be professionally packed for shipping to prevent damage during transit. For example, FedEx does a great job preparing art for shipping and we’ve never had damaged artwork that was packed by FedEx. Gallery does not pay for shipping either way and artists who ship their work should purchase shipping insurance as we are not responsible for damage during shipping. Shipped work must arrive by date specified in the call or before, please allow plenty of time for shipping transit.
