Why does it take so long to receive an order?
- We will try our hardest to ship your order as fast as possible, but we are a small business and sometimes it just takes a while to get everything packaged and out the door.
I purchased something from your current show, why hasn’t it shipped yet?
- If you purchased something from the current exhibit it may not be available to ship until the close of the show as it is currently on display at the gallery. This is true for originals, framed prints, and if you happen to be the lucky person who purchased the last print of a print edition.
How do I know when my order is shipped?
- You will be emailed a tracking number once your order is packaged and labeled.
What if my order arrives damaged?
- Please email us with images of the damage. We will arrange for the return of the item. Once that item has been returned we will either ship a replacement (if available) or issue a refund.
