Hampton Photo Arts Will Sell Prints by Local Artists

Every two months, one artist will be chosen at random and given the opportunity to sell prints of their artwork at Hampton Photo Arts in Bridgehampton. Each artist that is selected will give two pieces, one for each month of the feature. Hampton Photo Arts will print each piece as they sell, at edition amounts determined by the artist. Each artist is responsible for the cost of printing each piece that sells and determining a markup for the prints to make a profit.

To enter the drawing, stop into Hampton Photo Arts in the Bridgehampton Commons and leave a business card in the bowl at the front counter. All entries that aren’t chosen remain eligible for following months.  Each selected artist is contacted on the 15 of the month via email to bring artwork (digital files if available) to prepare for printing. Artists will need to specify the size and price of each piece and chosen artists will feature their work in store for two months, beginning on the 1st of the month following the month they are selected. If HPA does not hear back from the chosen artist by the 20 of the month, another artist will be selected.

Original artworks 11”x14” and smaller can be scanned in store for reproduction, but anything larger must be photographed and given as a digital file for reproduction. Giclee reproductions cannot exceed 18”x24” Artwork may only be produced in one size, on one paper type, determined by the artist and artwork will be sold as prints only. At the end of each month, the artist will be billed for the cost of printing for each piece sold, and upon payment, the artist will receive profit from sold prints.
