Q: How does ArtCycle select its inventory?
A: ArtCycle works with a selection committee comprising collectors, curators, and seasoned art professionals who ensure that buyers have access to art that is relevant in the emerging, mid-career, and established markets. Our curated inventory offers collectors a choice of works from reputable artists, and a range of works that will appeal to a broad collectorship.
Q: Can I see in person the artwork I’m interested in purchasing?
A: No. ArtCycle operates exclusively online. We guarantee pristine condition of all artwork or your money back.
Q: I want to sell an artwork. How long will it take ArtCycle to determine if they will or will not sell my piece?
A: It varies but we make every effort to inform you within 7 business days.
Q: What is ArtCycle’s commission structure?
A: The commission structure at ArtCycle is straightforward, fair and no-nonsense. Since the prices are fixed, there is no mystery or confusion regarding who gets how much.
ArtCycle’s approach guarantees that the consignor maximizes profits from the works they sell, while the collector is presented with opportunities to purchase works of a high caliber at a fair price. With our system, everyone wins. It is simple: consignors will pay a commission of 20% on sale amounts below $20,000 and 15% of the amount above $20,000.
If you are interested in consigning an artwork, please email two or more high resolution images to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information:
Q: Do you represent artists directly?
A: As a secondary market gallery, we do not represent artists nor do we exhibit works directly from artists. ArtCycle Discovers, our competition for MFA students and recent graduates of New York City programs, is the only exception.
