If you want to send your artworks to us, all works can be delivered to the Sonsgallery directly by hand or by post. However, please note that the artists must be responsible for all shipping costs and any damage to the artwork.
You must prepay for return shipping and send works using a reusable box with a return label containing a barcode. Without a barcoded return label, we will refuse to resend your artwork.
Please do not send your artwork with a glass or a special frame, since you can utilize our gallery frames for free. If the glass you send is broken, your artwork is damaged and there will be an extra $50 Janitorial Fee.

All work must be delivered to Sonsgallery ten days prior to the opening of the exhibition.
All works must be in printed, matted (white or off-white) and labeled on the back with information such as the title, date completed, artist’s name and signature. If your artwork is a limited edition, please label on the back.
