I've been really thinking about whether I should really persue getting my work into an art gallery or not. I think what's been really making me hesitate to try and get into one is the fact that most of them take 40% - 50% of sales. With that in mind I would probably have to double my prices for compensation. Then I start learing that some of the galleries don't really promote your work simply because you're a new artist and not "established" enough yet. But isn't that kinda the point? If you are new artist and your work is superb, awesome, or very unique, wouldn't they want to promote your work? Don't get me wrong, not all galleries are like that, there are some really awesome ones out there, who loves to work with thier artists to make sure they get some sales.
I may be jumpin' the gun, which is probably the case. So I guess I should ask myself these questions:
1. How bad do I want to be in a gallery?
2. How will being in a gallery benefit me?
3. Will it really increase my sales that much by being in one?
4. Am I reallly willing to give them up to 50% of my sales?
Hmmm..something to think about on my part.
Have a great week!
