Do you have a little artist in your family? Your child can submit artwork to be displayed in a gallery at one of Austin’s most popular toy stores! Terra Toys is looking for art by children of any age. Review the submission requirements (listed below and on the Terra Toys website). You can even make money if your artwork sells! Terra Toys will take a standard gallery consignment of 50% of the selling price.
— Submission requirements:
- Content: In the spirit of Terra Toys, the content of submissions should include toys, fairy tales, fantasy, whimsical imagery and imaginary creatures. No copyrighted or licensed images, please.
- Materials: Oil, acrylic, pencil, and ink are preferred. Other materials may be used, but in a professional manner — for example, a collage or charcoal piece must be sealed with a coat to prevent peeling or smudging.
- Size: They ask that your submission be no smaller than 4×4 inches and no larger than 48×48 inches. However, they make exceptions for exceptional pieces.
- Display: Your art piece must be ready for the gallery! All pieces should have a hanging device on the back to go up on our gallery wall. Drawings must be framed; canvas art does not need a frame, but it is highly encouraged. Canvas art should have staples on the back, not sides.
If you are interested in submitting your artwork, send images to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please provide your name, the size of your piece, your materials, and your price.
If selected, your artwork will be displayed at Terra Toys for up to 90 days. If the piece does not sell in the 90-day time frame, it must be picked up by the artist.
Terra Toys asks that you do not bring your pieces into the store for art gallery consideration. Only submit by email. Questions? Stop by the store or call (512) 445-4498.
We can’t wait to check out the gallery soon!
