Norfolk Arts Centre Mission

The Norfolk Arts Centre (NAC) is a public art gallery, dedicated to the learning, preservation and nurturing of the creativity, enjoyment and appreciation of the arts throughout Norfolk County. We support and promote the arts through exhibitions, education, special events and public programs, while working with local and surrounding communities and agencies.

Gift Shop Objectives

The NAC gift shop seeks to support local artists and artisans by promoting their works and providing them with a venue to make their work available for sale to the public. The Shop will enhance our visitor’s experience by providing them with the opportunity to purchase local, handcrafted products, catalogues and items that foster and inspire creativity. Any profits realized will go to support NAC programming.



Gift Shop Criteria

Gift Shop Criteria:

The NAC Shop accepts original works of art, handcrafted items, and culture-related items from regional artists, craftspeople, and authors under two conditions:

  1. Items are on consignment.
  2. NAC Shop may opt, if budget allows, to purchase items at values under $20 from craftspeople, artists and authors for resale.

The following will be taken into consideration when determining the marketability of all works:

  • Design Quality / Craftsmanship
  • Originality (no items made from kits)
  • Presentation
  • Sales potential

Applications may be submitted at any time throughout the year.  NAC staff will review Consignor Applications at a minimum three times per year. New items will be brought in depending on available space.  All decisions by NAC staff are final.
