#Artists: Open Call–Reviewing Art to List For Sale On Amazon

 

Many things have changed on A-mazon.com over the years. A couple of years before art galleries expanded to selling art on Amazon, I opened the Transmedia Artist A-mazon Pro Store in July of 2011. I’ve sold dozens of prints on paper and canvas, paintings, and limited edition artist posters in my A-mazon store.  

View the Transmedia Artist A-mazon Pro Store here.

Now I’d like to revitalize the inventory of my A-mazon store by adding 100-200 more artworks.

I’m especially interested in adding artwork multiples–print editions on paper and canvas and artist’s posters. I’d also like to try some hand-painted limited edition scarves, accessories, and clothing, as well as select one-of-kind handmade items.

Send the link to your website or online portfolio for review to: mariekazalia@gmail.com

There is no fee unless your work is accepted into the Transmedia Artist Amazon store.

Once accepted you will be expected to pay a one-time fee of $10USD to cover your first five listings in the store. If you want to list ten items pay $20, fifteen items pay $30 etc. Note: One print edition is one listing (for possible multiples sales from that one listing). This token fee helps us all stay committed!

Artists provide retail prices and calculate shipping expenses for each art item listing (A-mazon allows$ 4.49 shipping per listing so that an increase in retail price is necessary to cover shipping costs). Buyers pays $4.49 shipping fee. Artists must provide one or more high-resolution jpeg image of each item(including detail views) to go on each Amazon listing.

Artists are notified when a buyers pays for an order on A-mazon and then has 3-5 business day to ship the sold item (with tracking number) sent directly to the buyer . If artists are unavailable the order may be cancelled. (I want to sign on artists who are attentive to their email and reply quickly!)

Artists receive paymen-t of 60% for each sold item 30 days after tracking confirmation verifies that the buyer has received the shipped item.  A-mazon policy allows buyers 30 days to return items.

Most common reasons for non-acceptance:

  1. item/items not suited to A-mazon sales
  2. photographs of item or items do not meet A-mazon standards

The artist Gideon Fasola offers commissions of original fine art portraits capturing elements of you in combinations symbolizing your personality, profession, passions, collections, fantasy life, cos-play roles and creative activities in a visual yin-yang.

To discuss a possible commission from the African artists here, as well as other, and review their fees and details click here.

The unconventional portrait below, of a woman with her eyes closed, conveys her interior– thoughts, feelings, her mood– and gives us a glimpse into her inner sensuality.

The remarkable portrait below, by an artist that goes by the name Theopencil (his full name Theophilus Boateng Kwaku Sarpong), from Accra, Ghana, Africa is a demonstration of his accomplished photorealism rendering techniques used to depict this image from the artist’s imagination.

Artist D.A. Metrov was recently invited to conduct a public portrait session at the Santa Barbara Museum of Contemporary Art as part of Marinella Senatore’s highly-acclaimed Building Communities exhibition. The event was a huge success. Portraits from the exhibit definitely fit the category of the unconventional–

Metrov is known for his uncanny ability to capture his subject’s “spiritual essence.” “It’s not something I try to do, it’s simply what comes naturally. Some have called it a psychic ability,” says Metrov, an artist living and working in Santa Barbara, California.

“Opposing Agendas” New Painting from Randall Marmet’

“Opposing Agendas" abstract painting by Randall Marmet.

“Opposing Agendas” abstract painting by Randall Marmet.

 

“This painting developed for me while I was thinking about different approaches at the same time.  At first, it was somewhat unsettling to me, but then I realized that like a lot of endeavors, it evolved organically to a place that made sense as a whole and began to harmonize.  I realized that even in chaos, one must look at the bigger picture” wrote Randall Marmet.

 

RMarmetOpposingAgendas2

 

24″x 36″ x 1 3/8″ deep hand stretched gallery quality canvas.  Original acrylic fine art painting, hand-painted and clear coated with archival artists varnish for protection against dust and abrasion.  The painting extends around the edges providing a very elegant look making no need for a frame.  Besides, abstract artwork does not need a frame.  Just hang it and enjoy!
