CVArts collects a 35% commission on artwork sold through the gallery. It is essential that you take this in consideration when you price your artwork. In general, there are two ways to approach this.
Decide the dollar value that YOU want to take home from the sale of your artwork FIRST. For example, if you to take home $100 from a specific piece, you calculate the retail price as follows: $100 x commission conversion factor of 1.429 = $142.90. Thus, your retail price would be $142.90.
Decide the retail price that you would like to see displayed with your piece of art FIRST. Then, calculate your share of the selling price. For example, if you decide that you’d like to see your artwork displayed for sale at $142.90, then your share of the selling price is: $142.90 x your share of .65 = $100.00. Thus, you would take home $100.00
