Sales & Commissions

At Circle, we do not directly handle sales. This means that our website doesn't include a "buy now" button. When a buyer is interested we facilitate the communication up to the point of the exchange. The artist is then responsible for accepting the payment as well as the shipping of the artwork.

We do not take commissions on sales. This is valid for sales that result directly or indirectly from the artist's publication on our website and/or other projects.

How can I publish in your magazines? 

Artists accepted for online feature will be able to choose if they also want to be published in the next issue of Spotlight Magazine. Artists only interested in the magazines can  sign up here to receive the next open call.

This is not just another portfolio site. Each artist's page on our website is attentively handmade. Our team of experts will take the time to edit your images and text in order to provide a professional presentation that best describes the scope of your artistic practice, style and intentions.
