7 Ways to Get your Target Gallery to Represent You

Fine Art Tips

#5. The Look & See

Invite your targeted gallery to visit a current showing of your work.

• Many artists show their art is art/craft shows, restaurants, banks, interior design firms, frames shops and their own studios.

• If you are lucky enough to live in a community that has a possible gallery for you this approach might work. I suggest you send a printed invitation with an image of your art to the director followed up with a phone call.

• This is the approach I chose back when I found my first gallery years ago! I had a sell-out show in a friend’s design studio. While it was still hanging, I invited the gallery director to view my art. She loved it and the rest is history!
