First some background information. Portal Crystal Gallery (also called Portal Gallery and Portal Art Gallery) hosts an extensive selection of high quality minerals, as well as a number of classes. Since opening in late 2017, various Artists have exhibited according to the usual commission arrangement, with exhibits ranging in length from 4 to 12 weeks. They received 65% of each Sale’s gross, with only some Advertising and Reception costs paid up front.

For a number of reasons, specifically because our overhead and extensive efforts have not historically been compensated, we’ve changed our business model.

Starting in 2019, our Gallery space will only become available on Rent / Service Fee versus Commission basis. In other words, you’ll pay an agreed-upon fee up front - either for Rent alone, or for our additional promotional Services as well - which will be counted against your commission. Whichever is the greater, that’s what the Gallery will hold onto.

For example, if you paid $10 rent and $10 for services - or $20 total up front - that would be pitted against our traditional 35%. So if you sold $100 of items, you’d pay $35 to us, or rather we’d pay you $65 after those Sales were complete. If you sold only $10 in items, you’d pay the initially furnished $20 only.

We have much to offer. Read on if this is an arrangement you could imagine. We look forward to hosting you and your Art, if the time is right.
