Artists Applications

Why work with us?

We are one of the longest established independent galleries in the South West with many years of success in selling contemporary British art. We have a huge and loyal customer base across the UK and further afield. Our welcoming two storey gallery is at the heart of bustling Dartmouth in the beautiful South Hams ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’, a favourite holiday destination for tourists and second home owners alike. With two floors, we have room to hold focused exhibitions alongside our gallery collection. As well as a lovely gallery space, we actively market our artists’ work through our website, regular mailshots, weekly email campaigns, magazine adverts and features, online advertising and social media. We’re a long standing member of the brilliant Own Art scheme, opening up a whole new market for your work. We also offer our customers the opportunity to buy online, again offering much greater potential for your work to find a new home. Most importantly, because we understand that you are working to make a living, we pay you promptly.

We are always open to working with new artists. We look for talented, authentic, professional artists who want to build a long term working relationship. If you are an artist looking to exhibit with us, first of all take a good look through our website and consider how your work compares to our existing range of artists. If you think your work would fit well with our approach but add something new, send us the following to info@dart-gallery.com:

  • A link to your website or social media and/or at least six images of your work. Please compress images or send via dropbox (or equivalent).
  • Your biography.
  • An explanation of how you approach to your work (motivations, techniques, etc).
  • Details of other galleries where you currently sell.
  • The wall prices of your work.
  • Reasons you feel our gallery would be right for you.

We get a lot of approaches so please don’t worry if you don’t hear from us right away.
