Sell your art online

Use Govedarou Art Gallery, the top destination for original art, to sell your art online

If you are an artist and would like to sell your art, we'd like you to consider joining us at Govedarou Art Gallery. We are specialists in finding customers for artists living and working not only in Greece but abroad as well.

It's free to sell your art

The first thing to understand about us is that there are no joining fees. This is not only fantastic news for your wallet, it also puts you at a great advantage over the art sites that charge you gallery fees. This is because the sites which charge fees are naturally focussed only on recruiting more artists, and not on actually selling art.

Here at govedaroufineartgallery.com we only make money when you sell your art! That's because we take a modest commission from every sale. Even this doesn't impact on your earnings because you are in full control of your prices for each artwork, and you can simply factor in the commission when setting the price.

Because of this business model, our entire operation is geared towards finding customers for your art. We can afford to be very choosy and pick only the best artists to represent.

One more reason why GovedarouFineArtGallery.com is a great place to sell your art

Because we are totally customer focussed, our customers can rate your art and provide feedback pre-sale. We also email every single customer post-sale to get feedback on their experience of buying art through govedaroufineartgallery.com. Happy customers means regular customers and up to 50% of the art we sell is to repeat customers.

You set the price

You know how much your art sells for, so you decide the selling price of your art. We take a commission of 35% from your price. This commission covers our costs of advertising, marketing, customer services, credit card processing fees, invoicing and admin.

You must include packaging and delivery costs

You are responsible for the costs of materials, packaging, and delivery to anywhere in Greece or abroad. Therefore you must set your price to include this cost. As an established artist, you probably already know how much it costs to package and deliver your style of artworks. Contact your preferred courier to establish the cost. Check delivery prices carefully as you are wholly responsible for the cost of delivery.

We are attracting a growing number of customers from overseas so please consider the option to deliver abroad and include overseas delivery charges for each of your artworks.

HOW TO GET STARTED

To get the ball rolling, after you have agreed with our artist terms and conditions, email us and send us your CV and artwork (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). During this process you'll be asked to provide contact details and other information we need to assess whether your art will sell. We'll contact you to let you know if you have been accepted. Please don't be offended if we think your art will not sell online. The whole process from application to acceptance normally takes about 48/72 hours.

HOW YOU GET PAID

Customers pay online through our credit card processing facilities or bank transfer. When payment is received, we will notify you of the details of the purchase by email, text message and if necessary by phone. You must then package and dispatch the artwork to arrive with the customer within 5 working days (or more when abroad). Once we have confirmed that the artwork arrived safely, you will be paid approximately 28 days after that date (this is comprised of 7 days for delivery, 14 day money back guarantee, 7 days for return). You will be paid by bank transfer or by the other methods indicated.

To stimulate sales and foster trust with potential customers, we offer all customers a 14 day no-quibble money back guarantee, which you must adhere to. The guarantee allows customers to return artworks within 14 days if they are not fully satisfied. They can return the artwork for any reason within this period. They will have to pay the postage and insurance costs if they return an artwork. You are not eligible to recoup the cost of delivering the artwork to the customer.

Welcome to Govedarou Art Gallery

Art to buy

Which art to buy?

If you are a first-time art buyer, it can be difficult to know exactly what art to buy. Here are some things to consider when deciding.

Hanging art in the right space

First of all, you need to think about the space you want to hang your art in. The right artwork in the right space will add a plus factor to any room. Measure the space you're going to hang the artwork in and ensure you leave plenty of white space (blank wall space) around the artwork. Art needs to have room to breathe on a wall. Too small a space and it will look cramped. But, too large a space and it will look swamped, and insignificant.

Buy the right art for your room

Next consider the style of your room. Surprisingly, a traditionally decorated room doesn't always need a traditional artwork. Imaginative combinations can be achieved providing the art is sympathetic to the room.

Consider light levels. Will the art you buy be hanging in a dark space, or brightly lit area? Sunlight makes a difference too. A dark sombre artwork won't be shown off effectively by bright sunlight, whereas a bright floral will look a little sad stuck in a dark corner or on a gloomy landing.

Buy the right art for your budget

Finally consider your budget. At Govedarou Art Gallery delivery is included in the stated price on each artwork to buy. So there's no need to worry about that. Feel free to email us for any questions.
