So, you spend your days teaching and your nights creating art? That’s awesome! Thanks so much for helping others. Very cool.
We’ve shown a number of university professors. And we continue to show many of them. They’ve been very nice and also thoughtful people respectful of the differences between scholarly settings and commercial settings. It’s always nice having such highly skilled experts in their field present in the gallery.
Thanks for doing the work – on putting in huge hours for decades to build your career. Everyone wants to be where you’re at, but few have the stamina to be able to do what it takes to get there. Huge hours, lots of stress, lots of dealing with disappointments and challenges, building your brand, learning and growing and learning and growing. Our hats are off to you! We know how hard it is because we’ve been there.
Are you selling lots of work, but just looking for a new city/gallery to show in? Feel free to TEXT us your full name and city and the word “professor”.
We’ll Google you and then all your links will pop up – the links to articles in the media – along with your website.
If you look like an amazing human being creating stunning art that fits into what we’re doing then go ahead and TEXT us your full name and city and the word “professor” and we’ll get back to you as soon as we get a free moment to schedule a meeting with you: (509) 270-5804.
And, because you’re an arts professional then you also understand that our hands are extremely full keeping our business alive and thriving so we won’t be able to reply to all inquiries. We’re fully committed to the artists that we already have the keeping them happy takes a lot of time and skill and care and keeps us busy. Calling you up and explaining to you why you don’t fit right now into our program sounds like a terrible way to spend time for both you and us, doesn’t it?
Thanks again for doing the work, putting in the time, and serving the community through teaching. We hope things work out and we can work together. Thank you!
In the meantime, here are some great articles written by a highly successful arts advisor in California with decades upon decades of experience in the art world : Absolutely Essential Artist Tips, What Galleries Look For In Artists, How To Navigate The Art World and Common Misconceptions About Galleries. Being a thoughtful professional you’ll recognize much of what he says, but some of it will be new to you.
These articles will be especially helpful for those artists who are successful professionals, but haven’t started a new relationship with a gallery in a while. The relationship between a highly successful gallery owner and a full time artist are among the coolest relationships ever, but you want to get off on the right foot and the above articles will put you in the right frame of mind to successfully begin a healthy relationship with a peer. Enjoy!
