How do I add works to my fair booth?
You will need to log-in to CMS (http://cms.artsy.net/) using your email address provided by Artsy.
First, open the show and click the Artworks tab at the top of the page. Within the Artworks tab, click the “Add Works to this Show” button highlighted here in purple. A new window will pop up, where you can search for existing artworks in your CMS or upload new artworks.
To search for existing artworks, type in an artist’s name or specific artwork title and the system will return the most closely related results. Select those works by clicking the checkbox to the right. You may continue to search for additional artworks—your selections will persist even when entering other search criteria. Click “Done” in the bottom right-hand corner of the window once you have finished making your selections to save them to the show.
Clicking on the “Upload New Artworks” button will take you through the process outlined in the Uploading Artworks article.

How do I add installation images of my fair booth?
Installation images can be added to any fair booth and at least three installation shots are required for them to display on your fair booth. Step-by-step instructions on how to add installation images can be found in our Adding Installation Images to a Show or Fair Booth
How do I add an artist?
You may add works by an artist already on Artsy or introduce a new artist via your CMS. Step-by-step instructions on how to add an artist can be found in our Help Center article Adding an Artist.
What tips should I follow when uploading an image to my artwork or fair booth?
- All images uploaded to a fair booth should be JPG or PNG files.
- Image width/length should be a minimum of 1000 pixels.
- Image files should have a file size less than 30mb.
- Ensure filenames do not include periods other than in the filetype extension, quotation marks, commas, dollar signs, spaces, or other similar symbols as these can cause errors in image processing.
- At least three installation shots are required for Installation Images to display on your fair booth.
What fields should I fill out when uploading my artworks?
We recommend including as much metadata as possible when uploading works to your fair booth. Fields with a * are REQUIRED for your works to publish and appear live on Artsy.net. These fields include at least 1 image of the artwork, Artist, title of the artwork, year artwork was made, medium type, materials, measurements, price, if the work has certificate of authenticity, and details on the signature. If you are missing any of these required fields, the work will not be published. You will see in the bottom left-hand corner of the artwork in CMS any missing fields.
I do not see artwork categories available to me!
Artwork categories are solely available to Artsy yearly subscribers.
Can I share my fair booth on social media?
Yes! You may share your fair booth on your social media channels and linking to your fair booth on Artsy or the fair marketplace page. The link will only be available once the preview is live.
How will interested collectors contact me?
Once your booth is published and the fair preview is live, collectors will be able to inquire on your artworks. You will receive an email whenever a collector places an inquiry on your artwork. We encourage you to respond to each and every message as quickly as possible. It is best practice to have at least two emails set up to receive inquiries. You can add a contact following steps in our article Adding a Gallery Contact in CMS.

Fair partners only have access to CMS for the duration of the fair they are participating in. Galleries who do not have a year-long subscription on Artsy are unable to add shows to Artsy.
I see works on Artsy are available for “Buy Now” or “Make Offer” options.
Galleries who do not have a year-long subscription on Artsy are solely able to list their works for inquiry. Listing options under Artsy's Secure Checkout are not available.
