Exhibition Opportunities

Are you an artist who is interested in sharing your talents with the Tulsa community? We offer opportunities for artists to exhibit in THE GALLERY and sell original work in our Gift Shop.

The Gallery

THE GALLERY at ahha Tulsa currently showcases the work of individual artists and artist groups working in all media. THE GALLERY offers opportunities for artists at various stages of their artistic careers from the region and beyond.

THE GALLERY is currently booked through the end of 2019. Please check back here for active artist calls. Please note that unsolicited proposals will not be reviewed.

The Gift Shop

Ahha Tulsa invites local and regional artists to sell original artwork in the ahha Gift Shop on a consignment basis.

Consignment Structure

Each selected artist must sign a consignment agreement with a term of at least 90 days. Inventory must be delivered at the artist’s expense to the ahha Hardesty Center within 5 business days of an executed consignment contract. Artists receive 60% of each sale and the ahha receives 40% of each sale. Members of ahha Tulsa receive a 10% discount on all gift shop sales.

Sales Process

Ahha Tulsa handles all sales and processing. Once per month, consignment checks are mailed to artists who sold merchandise the prior month.

Eligibility

Gift Shop consignment sales are open to all artists, but preference is given to artists living in the state of Oklahoma. All items must be handmade, original works of art or craft. The following items are currently accepted as approved by the committee: paintings, drawings, original prints, photography, clothing, textiles, pottery, ceramics, wood carving, sculpture, jewelry, toys and games, children’s items, paper works (art cards, notecards, calendars, hand-bound books, glasswork, metalwork, traditional art). The minimum price for artist pieces is $24.95 per piece. Please keep this in mind and package smaller items, such as notecards, in sets to achieve this minimum.

Review Process

Merchandise proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis and at least four times per year through a highly competitive process. A committee of ahha Tulsa staff and board members review submissions and select artists.
