Gallea allows you to increase the opportunities to show your work, selling to both a physical and web audience. The main objective is that your art reaches a varied and ever growing audience and by doing so, to expand your customer base.

No. The signage contract for exposing in an establishment requires a commitment from you per block of 1 month. This means that if you want to remove a canvas to sell it yourself, you will need to make a request for it through your profile. At the end of the current month only, you will be able to remove your work from an establishment and proceed to the sale on your side. However, please note that this will affect your sales statistics on the platform.
