Unlike other online art shops or e-commerce platforms, The Exhibit allows you to exhibit artworks which are not for sale. These maybe artworks which you just don’t want to part with, have already promised someone or artworks which have already sold but which you want to exhibit again. Not For Sale artworks won’t display any price tag and are not available for visitors to purchase during your exhibition.
If you are on our Free Independent Artist and Curator Plan, up to 50% of your exhibition can be made up of ‘Not for Sale’ artworks. This, however, means that at least the other half of your exhibition will need to be available for purchase. We want to avoid your followers and art lovers feeling like they are missing out because they can’t buy any of your beautiful artworks!
Note, if you change an artworks status from For Sale to Not for Sale once your exhibition has opened, The Exhibit charges an Artwork Status Edit Fee as a fraud protection measure. So we recommend that when you list an artwork for sale that it remains for sale during your exhibition opening dates (unless it sells of course!). Please see our Exhibitor Policy here for more information about Artwork Sales Status Editing Fees.
