Now that you’ve decided gallery representation is for you and have found a few galleries that are a good fit for your art, the serious work begins. It’s time to present your work to the gallery manager or director.
Speaking as both an artist and a former gallery director, the single most important advice I can offer is to treat contacts with galleries just like you would treat an interview with a corporation for whom you really want to work. And I mean really want to work for. It’s not just another job, it’s THE job for you.
You need to:
• Act professional
• Look professional
• Make a professional presentation
