Promotion & Publicity

ARTIST PROFILE

Our staff of talented writers have a wealth of experience in reviewing artwork in all mediums. As part of your representation, you will receive a press release that succinctly and elegantly introduces audiences to you and your work. This press release is also used in our promotional efforts and sent out to news publications, art magazines, and other organizations that may be interested in your work.

During your representation, we will manage and update all aspects of promotion, including social media, in-gallery materials and publications, and we will maintain communications with potential buyers, journalists, and collectors.

ARTMINE.COM

ARTmine.com welcomes thousands of visitors a month. It is a great resource for art buyers, including private and corporate collectors, interior designers, and art consultants. It is a prominent platform for online art sales and its vision and constantly expanding artist base go hand in hand with the globally present boost of the online art market.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Social media is an increasingly important component to the promotion of artwork, and Agora Gallery is proud to have a very active presence on multiple platforms through which your work will be promoted globally.

ONGOING PROMOTION

During your representation, we will manage and update all aspects of promotion, including social media, in-gallery materials and publications, and we will maintain communications with potential buyers, journalists, and collectors.

Exhibition & Sales

ARTWORK SELECTION

Our Gallery Director and Art Advisor will apply their years of experience and knowledge of the art world to help you select the perfect pieces to display in our gallery. We will make sure that the works displayed are the most compatible with our established audience and environment.

SCHEDULING

There are many factors that go into scheduling your exhibition. There may be certain exhibitions already on the calendar that will particularly suit your work. There also may be a certain time period that works best for you, or one that doesn’t work for you at all. All of these factors will be considered by our staff when scheduling your exhibition.

PUBLIC RELATIONS

Our PR team will work to extensively promote you by reaching out to relevant organizations, publications, and web pages to maximize exposure for you, your artwork, and your exhibition with Agora Emerging.

INVITATIONS

Here is an example of our e-mailed invitations:

LISTING

Some of the publications which we have listed in previously include ArtForum, City Guide New York, ArtRabbit, Eventbrite and others.

PROMOTIONAL CARDS

These cards are a great way to help spread the word about you and your exhibition. They also serve as excellent tokens and memorabilia. We display and offer these cards in our gallery, free to any guests who wish to take a few. It’s just another way your art can reach more viewers for a longer period of time.

RECEPTION PHOTOS

Visit our website or Facebook page to enjoy reception photos of our exhibitions.

SHIPPING / CUSTOMS / FRAMING

While it is true that you are responsible for the related costs, when the time comes, we will work with you and try to find ways to minimize your expenses and keep the process of shipping as smooth as possible. Please note that in some instances it may be possible to send un-stretched paintings to the gallery, rolled in a shipping tube, for re-stretching in New York.

INSTALLATION

Our professional team of art installers will unpack, install, and, if necessary, repack your artworks. You are welcome to send us specific instructions on how to hang your artworks, if you have any, and we will be happy to follow them.

INSURANCE

We maintain a Fine Art insurance policy covering artwork on our premises, up to $10,000 per artwork, with coverage and limits as set forth in our policy. You are solely responsible for insuring your art while in transit to and from the gallery.

ARTWORK PRICING

Our Gallery Director is happy to provide insight in pricing your works. We will price the artworks selected based on your CV, our experience and the list/selling price of similar work by other artists. If you have ever priced any of your artwork to the public, you must provide this information in order for us to make a fair assessment.

ARTWORK SALES

Nothing makes us happier than selling your artwork. When any work is sold while being promoted by Agora Emerging, you are entitled to 70% of the sale. This payment is delivered to you within three weeks after the collector pays for the work.
