Artist Submissions

Skyline Art Services welcomes submissions from artists interested in working with us. We maintain an active roster of artists, and information for many more as potential resources for future projects. We constantly seek new artists to work with so that our projects are fresh and unique to each client’s needs.

Interested artists should first spend time to understand the work we do to decide if we might be a fit. In addition to the following list, our website shows many examples of the projects we handle and the artwork we sell.

Our Markets

Skyline Art Services seeks artists in most visual media for permanent installation in healthcare and corporate spaces. The largest part of our work is in healthcare environments, so artists should determine how closely their work conforms to those needs. Our list of corporate clients is growing as well. In any case, the artists can help us understand how best to consider their work according to common requirements of each segment.

Media and the Markets

Typical media that we work with include, but not limited to: painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed media works in two dimensions or three dimensions. Most often, dimensional works are wall-hanging, but we also seek artists creating floor-standing work, mobiles, and kinetic sculpture. We will accept submissions in ceramic, glass, metal, paper, and textile. We also seek work in digital and new media.

Because many of the spaces we are designing are public and common areas, we seek large works of art or smaller modular pieces to cover large areas. Artists should show us the largest-scale work they have done or explain the potential for your work at large scale.

Reproductions

Fine art printing and reproductions are a necessary and significant part of our work. All artists in two-dimensional media should let us know in their submissions materials whether they will consider selling reproductions of their work. Additionally, logistical efficiency compels us to handle as much printing as possible ourselves. We ask artists to let us know whether they will consider licensing their work to Skyline Art Services.

Commissions and Specification

While we do at times find suitable pieces in an artist’s collection of available work, it is far more common to commission new work according to the requirements of the space we are designing. Artists should be able to explain whether and how they handle commissions, including lead time. Explain what sorts of specifications can be requested on new work, including color, dimension, subject and style. Typically, we commission new work based on, and adapted from, examples of past work.

Pricing

We prefer for artists to state their pricing information up front, understanding the distinction between wholesale or net costs as compared to retail pricing. Artists who can furnish a pricing guide best serve our immediate needs.
