We prefer to give Exhibition Spaces in our actual Falmouth Gallery to artists who live, work or study in Cornwall or the South West because you must be able to travel to the gallery to hang and collect your work, and restock if your work sells. We are unable to receive work sent to us by post, or to return it.
However if you want to be inolved and you live outside of the South West of the U.K. or Internatioanlly, check out our Virtual Spaces!
Our gallery celebrates the work of illustrators and artists from a range of practices. We only sell work created by:
Commercial & Traditional Illustrators.
Children’s Book Illustrators.
Street / Urban / Graffiti Artists.
Comic / Graphic Novel Artists.
Film / Animation / Games Visual Development Artists, Character Designers & Concept Artists.
We are primarily an illustration gallery selling unframed and unmounted original illustrated art, such as limited edition prints, original drawings, posters, greetings cards and postcards and small printed, illustrated merch such as enamel pins, small accessories and vinyl stickers.
We sell affordable art which ranges from £1 to £700 in value. We are sorry but we absolutely cannot stock jewellery, precious metals/gems, sculpture, video art, installations, fashion and textiles (apart from T-Shirts), general crafts, ornaments or ceramics, or traditional Fine Art such as paintings.
Everything we sell needs to be illustrated by you, kind to others (don't incite hatred or violence) and you must own the full copyright. We reserve the right to remove anything from sale that does not meet these guidelines.
When you complete your booking at the checkout and book your exhibition space we will take a ganders at the illustration you have uploaded: when you book A space, you will be asked to upload an image of one of your illustrations so we can see what you create. You won't be able to checkout without uploading a sample illustration first.
We don't want to waste your time and money, so if we don't think we could sell your (probably very awesome and beautiful) art to our customer base, we will refund you your payment. We can't provide feedback for why we haven't confirmed your booking, but it's most likely that your work would find lots more hungry customers than we could ever supply you with at a Fine Art Gallery or Craft Fair. We rarely turn anyone away - if we do, it is usually because their work doesn’t meet our guidelines, for example it is made of silver, or is a framed oil painting on canvas.
If we think you will fit right in at Bodega Bijou, then you will receive a confirmation that your order has been fulfilled by email, and you are all booked in for the show! After booking, please stop by the gallery during our opening hours to introduce yourself because we would love to meet you.
We know that uploading files is a bit annoying, but this verification process is simply our way of ensuring our little gallery remains a gallery dedicated to illustration and illustrators. We can't wait to hear from you, and hopefully work with you, real soon.
When you book an exhbition space, you will be able to download our Artist Guidebook at the checkout, or from an email sent to you. This handy guide gives you all the information you need to prepare for the show, and tells you when to bring your work to hang at the gallery. If for some reason you haven't received your Guidebook, please email us (email@example.com) and we will email you a PDF.
Production times are currently slower than normal due to Covid19. We aim to create anything you order within 7 working days, but there may be slight delays. Please bear with us, and be assured that as soon as you place your order, we get to work on it.
If you haven't received your order and you are worried it's been lost, please contact us via the contact page and we will trace your package and get back to you asap.
