Works on Metal
CALL TO ARTISTS
Works on Metal is the latest product line from FDL Ventures. The company’s objective is to connect with artists who wish to license images of their work for high quality reproductions on metal. The company will wholesale to retailers, including museum stores, furniture stores, design stores and gift shops.
Artists who create two dimensional work are eligible. Media includes: Acrylic, oil, watercolor, ink, pastels, oil pastels, photography, collage and most mixed media.
Works on Metal are high quality giclees adhered to metal and sealed for a durable finish. The pieces vary in size depending on the original art. Wire hangers or back-mounted hangers are incorporated in the production process. Each piece is ready for hanging.
Now is the time for artists to submit their entries. January 31, 2013 is the deadline. Future call to artists deadlines will be announced later. Fill in the entry form and email it with your photos. Photo specifications are on the entry form.
Los Angeles will host the Museum Store Association Expo in April 2013, where buyers from across the country attend, looking for new and unique products. It is here that Works on Metal will formally launch the line to this national buyers’ market.
Chosen artists will be licensed for reproduction of their work and will receive a royalty based of sales. Each piece produced will feature the artists photo and bio on the back. Once samples are approved the pieces will go into production. The full process takes about 90 days.
Works on Metal will transform this site into a gallery, e-commerce and catalog for retailers.
