Join us in supporting our community of artists working in alternative photographic processes by participating in a GALLERY5X7 holiday tradition!

Every year during the holiday season, WJ Eastman (Founder of GALLERY5X7) selects several prints from our represented artists for purchase. Last December, two prints were selected: “Rose,” a gum bichromate print from Alan Glover and “Lure,” a toned cyanotype created by Victor Senkov.

This year, we will select 2-3 artists to purchase from and will announce the selected prints in early December. In this season of gift giving, what better way to support our community of artists than with the purchase of original prints?

As you decide on the perfect gift for a fan of photography and alternative process image-making, I encourage you to consider a purchase from our own community of artists. Many alternative photographic processes are represented at a variety of price points on the GALLERY5X7 site.

Find the perfect gift for anyone interested in handcrafted photography – an original print to start or add to a print collection from an artist creating images using modern interpretations of historic alternative processes.

How Do I Make A Purchase?

Artists have full control over pricing of their work on GALLERY5X7 and are free to negotiate all terms directly with potential customers. Sales inquiries are passed directly to the represented artist and all transactions (pricing negotiations, purchase arrangements, shipping of prints, etc.) are conducted by the artists and purchaser directly.

Reach out to the creator of an image you appreciate by simply clicking the “Contact The Artist” button below any image in an artist’s gallery to ask for additional print details and to arrange a purchase.

About GALLERY5X7

GALLERY5X7 promotes the work of represented artists to facilitate direct connections between artists and potential collectors/buyers. We are breaking the traditional art gallery sales model; we do not directly sell prints or take a sales commission as do other galleries, instead we facilitate sales directly between the artist and collector and rely on the financial support of the community we serve to place a value on our services. We trust our community will reward us if we provide a valued service.

GALLERY5X7 facilitates direct connections between artists and collectors as we believe this approach establishes a personal connection and trust that can lead to long-term relationships – relationships that we intend to foster, not get between.  We hope you will find our “get the gallery out of the way” approach refreshing!
