Stone Soup Galleries Resident Artist Agreement


  • The Artists must be “regional” which means they live and work in Midwestern US.

  • Stone Soup Galleries is a place for artists to be successful with sales. Therefore:

    • We expect the artists of Stone Soup Galleries to actively engage in social media advertising, emailing, and possibly have customer street addresses for postcard advertising.

    • Resident artists are expected to attend and contribute party food to our Openings.

      • When it’s impossible to attend, send a check to Stone Soup Galleries in the amount of $15. If you know that you cannot ever attend, please make arrangements to pay in advance, (for example, quarterly). If you don’t contribute this aspect of running the gallery, after 3 failures to pay, your membership will be discontinued.

    • All checks are written to Stone Soup Galleries by the first day of the month.

  • Display:

    • The space for 2-D is about 6 feet wide by 8 feet or so. This can vary.

    • All sorts of possibilities for display will be considered, but the final decision is with the Owner.

  • When it is for the benefit of Stone Soup Galleries, the Owner reserves the right to remove anything from the showroom for any reason at all.

  • Payout is made by check.

    • In general, payout is made by the 10th of the following month. (Some rare exceptions to this may apply).

    • When art is being held for “lay away”, payout to the artist is not made until the last customer payment is made.

    • All credit card fees are paid by the Gallery.

    • Sales tax is collected and paid by the Gallery.

  • Any commissions resulting from exposure at Stone Soup Galleries are subject to the same commission schedule as art already appearing in the gallery.
