Ancora Art was set up to help both aspiring artists and artists who have already found their feet. Being a highly competitive, saturated industry, we recognize that it's hard to gain traction as an artist, and we're here to remove that hardship.
We work very closely with our artists. Not only do we advise on market trends, but we also represent our artists and their beautiful pieces at every stage of the process.
Once artwork is created, we provide an entirely comprehensive umbrella sales service - this includes photography, marketing, consumer interaction, and eventual sale and distribution.
That way, our artists can spend more time creating and less time worrying about the nitty-gritty sales stuff. It also allows us to display a huge variety of pieces in our online sales gallery and in our pop-up galleries, set to debut in the Summer of 2021.
Our ethos is predicated on giving back and supporting our community. In such tricky, unprecedented circumstances, art and creativity has a very real capacity to therapize those who might be struggling.
Not only do 10% of our profits go straight back into community projects and charitable causes, but we also give individuals who are struggling (for any and every reason) the physical resources to create artwork. If and when these pieces are sold, 100% of profits go straight back to the artist.
We don't believe artistic talent should be exclusive nor unseen, and it's our mission to ensure it's not.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I want to sell my artwork. How do I register?
Please head over to the 'Join Us' page for further information. Alternatively, please Contact Us and we'd be delighted to answer any queries.
How do you choose which charities and community projects to support?
We determine which causes to support on a case by case basis. Run by former students, with many student artists within our community, we are very conscious of problems facing the student population at the moment. As such, we have decided to support our sister organization, www.streettalk.co.uk primarily throughout 2021, to which 10% of all profits will be donated.
How do you find your artists?
We either contact or are contacted by artistic talents from across the UK. This is done through either word of mouth or social media. We then have a chat with the artist and see how best we can provide them with our services.
Can I return a piece?
Yes! You can return any pieces within our statuatory 14-day returns period, as long as the piece is returned to us in the same condition in which it left.
Can I schedule a video call to see a piece?
Of course! If you would like to schedule a video call to view one of our pieces, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and specify which piece you would like to view.
Are pieces insured whilst in transit?
Yes, all pieces are comprehensively and fully insured from the moment they leave our studio, to the moment they reach you.
Will you be putting on exhibitions?
Yes, we will be releasing details about exhibitions and events very soon! In the meantime check out our virtual exhibitions ‘here’.
How does shipping work?
Since shipping prices vary dependent on the size of the piece, its weight, its value and its destination, we invoice shipping charges post-purchase. We encourage all prospective buyers to get in touch for a shipping estimate prior to purchase.
