To ensure the highest quality of work, all work submitted to the store is reviewed by the ShopColumbia Review Committee.
Step 1. Select your best work. What work do you want to represent you as an artist? Is the work reflective of your current skill? Is the work that you are submitting a cohesive body of work?
to schedule an appointment to submit your work for review. At the appointment, bring examples of your work and a copy of your artist statement. If your work is large, submit 1 actual piece and either digital or printed photographs of additional work. For smaller work, submit 3-5 actual pieces that represent the items you want to sell. At the appointment, all artists complete A Checklist for New Artists.
Step 4. The ShopColumbia Review Committee meets the first Monday of each month. A ShopColumbia representative will present your work to the Board. The Board will provide you feedback based on Price, Presentation, Originality and Craftsmanship. There are three outcomes decided by the Committee:
• Accepted Conditionally
• Submit Again at a Later Time
Step 5. After the Review, a ShopColumbia representative will notify the artist the Board's decision. If work is accepted, ShopColumbia will suggest a quantity of work to consign.
Step 6. Artists will then sign a consignment contract and Federal W-9. The consignment contract is signed biannually: Spring Consignment Period is from January 1 - August 31 and Fall Consignment Period is from September 1 - December 31. If artists earn more than $600 from the sale of their work, the College will will send a 1099 to the address on file.
