Questions that Artists ask … and Advice from the Global Art League!
Artists are always asking the question of how they may get their work shown and sold?
The best advice that we can give you is that all artists must show their work whenever and wherever they can!
It is important for all artists to start somewhere and any place is a good place to start. The venue to exhibit is not as important as getting your work out there to be seen. What you want is for your work to be seen by as many people as possible.
By showing your work you are moving the process forward towards eventually selling your work.
How Can The Global Art League Help Me?
As a global community of artists, being a part of the Global Art League can boost your career. We keep in touch with our members by giving them opportunities to exhibit their work and also passing on savings by arranging special deals with preferred suppliers of artists' materials.
We also exhibit the work of every member via the virtual gallery. This means that your work will be shown on screens in galleries in major cities across America. Your work is also promoted via our website and your name will be easily search-able by the search engines.
How Will I Get My Art to the Exhibition?
We recommend that you consult your local post office to get the best rates on packaging and shipping. However, if you are looking for extra peace of mind, we have our preferred supplier of art packaging equipment who can give 20% off the price of special art packaging boxes.
How Many Pieces Can I submit?
We are currently accepting a maximum of three pieces per artist for each exhibition
How Will I be Notified If My Work Sells?
If your work sells either online or at the exhibition, we will notify you by email of the details of the transaction. The Global Art League is responsible for the cost of shipping for all sales made at the exhibition, while you will be responsible for adding the price of shipping to the cost of your work if it is sold remotely.
In the case of sales via our virtual channels, we will await confirmation of receipt of the art from the buyer before releasing the funds to the seller.
Who Do I contact for more information?

Don’t expect to become an overnight success. It takes hard work and time. You must learn who the market is for your work, the ones that may buy your art. You must give it time and be patient. Every artist’s priority should first be in creating art, before selling art. Artists should not have their main priority be the selling of their art. This may lead to disappointment. Create art because you enjoy it first. Be consistent and patient.
You must find out over time which of your works appeals to the greater audience. Eventually, you will learn and through the process you will achieve success. Create art that will get people talking and want to share with others. Find out what captures the viewer’s attention in your artwork.
Pay attention to feedback, and you may notice certain consistencies in what amazes your audience about your own artwork. If you focus on these elements, you may find more people come to recognize you by these strengths.
