Frequently Asked Questions
Who makes money from the sale of this book?
Nobody. The pricing & application fee cover the printing and production of the book. Without the hundreds of volunteer hours needed to produce the book we would not be able to offer the book at this price.
Why are you doing this if no one is making money from it?
ArtPush was created to help promote local artists living in the Bay Area. This book allows artists to get their work seen by hundreds of people, especially during the pandemic when galleries were closed. To help artists promote their work, individual artist contact information is published next to their artwork.
Why do I see Studio 23 on my Paypal receipt?
Artpush uses Artquarter.com to provide e-commerce processing for applications and for book sales. ArtQuarter.com is run by Studio 23 Gallery.

Why don’t you pay the artists?
ArtPush is a non profit organization. Sales from the book may generate a small return which is used by ArtPush toward future efforts to support artists. This is not commissioned work. This is work completed within the last 10 years by emerging or established artists. Publishing the art book is an attempt to help artists get exposure for their work and promote sales. Each artist’s website and contact information is published next to the artist’s work in the book. Learn more about the benefits.
