Through our Exhibition Program, we put on bimonthly art exhibitions in our east Austin gallery to showcase the work of our studio artists, alongside the work of exhibiting artists who create their work outside our studio. Though we started as a space for exclusively Texas-based artists, we now represent artists from across the country in our exhibitions. We also operate an online store with a wide selection of original artwork, fine art prints, and merchandise. The goal of the Exhibition Program is to provide opportunities for our artists to earn a wage and to seriously pursue a career in the arts, and to carve out a place in the contemporary art conversation and wider artistic marketplace for these talented voices. As such, our artists are paid a 50% commission, equal to the commission rate of traditional art galleries, on all original artwork sold in the gallery and online store.
We also work with our artists to find exhibition opportunities outside of SAGE. Most notably, SAGE artists have been represented at the Outsider Art Fair in New York City in 2019, 2020, and 2022.
