Who is Excellence Art Gallery?
The gallery is owned by Italian artist Massimo Cedrini and his partner Giuseppe Carnevale who is in charge of curating and event organization. We opened our first gallery in Marbella’s Casco Antiguo (old town) in 2014 capturing the tourist market, our mission and business model is based on promoting artists by exhibiting them and organizing events at ours and other galleries and art shows in Europe.
Our success story continues, we just opened a new 250 sq mtr gallery space on the Golden Mile next to the Palacio de Congreso continuing our commitment and dedication to promote artists more effectively in such strategic location and premises to serve the local luxury market.
We now extend our mission online offering a unique new platform for artists to engage and share their creations with a discerning audience of art lovers opening new market opportunities offering packages to accommodate all budgets including free.
Why should I post my art here?
Unlike other online sites that provide you only a virtual gallery we offer the opportunity to exhibit in a real brick and mortar gallery to include effective online promotions and we only take a sales commission on artwork sold at the gallery not when you make direct sales through your online presence on our platform.
What are the qualifications criteria?
We intend to make this platform interesting to our audience to keep them coming back curating quality artworks and supporting career artists being an emergent, mid-career or established artist, academic or with a great talent creating their own art in literally all creative disciplines.
Our curatorial panel will review your submissions and advise you accordingly. Quality of images must be professional, your artwork is important and need to be presented properly.
Do you charge fees or commissions on sales?
We only charge sales commission on artworks we sell physically direct at the gallery, if the artwork is sold while exhibited at the gallery the gallery is entitled to thirty percent commission. If you make direct sale with collector through our platform, we do not get involved nor charge any commission unless our service is required to facilitate the sales transaction and other logistics.
Do you get exclusivity on works posted online?
No we do not require exclusivity on artwork posted online, however when an artwork is spread all over the net it becomes less attractive to the collector, it’s always best to keep it more exclusive and avoid posting the same artwork on other sites especially public e-commerce platforms.

Why don’t you sell artwork online?
We are in effect a brick and mortar gallery, we do not have the necessary logistical tools to handle efficiently online orders especially when the work is with the artist in another geographical location around the world.
