Submission Guidelines

We love looking at new art and review work from dozens of prospective artists each month. If you think your artwork may be a good fit for Hang Art we recommend you spend some time looking through this site, and visit Hang Art to get a sense of the type of work we carry, the prices we set and our underlying mission.

A couple very important things to keep in mind when deciding to submit your portfolio:

Hang Art exhibits the work of San Francisco Bay Area artists only. Portfolios of artists that live and work beyond this geographic region will not be considered. We define the San Francisco Bay Area by the counties that border the bay including; San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Contra Costa, Alameda, San Mateo, and northern Santa Clara counties.

Hang Art does not review portfolios in person.

Hang Art exhibits unique originals, specializing in paintings, drawings and sculptures. We do not exhibit photography, digital images, video, or any other serially reproduced artwork.

Work is assessed for its quality, originality, and potential to enhance the collection exhibited by Hang Art. Our artists vary widely in terms of their age, education and experience; there is no absolute requirement.
