How to get into galleries.

A lot of artists want to exhibit in commercial art galleries. They see it as recognition of their quality as an artist, and they expect that the gallery will provide an income for them. Sometimes this actually what happens, but sometimes not.

My show in a Brighton gallery.

I remember when I was first tempted to get into galleries. What I mean is that I remember the time that I decided to try getting into commercial art galleries and get them to sell my artwork for me. What I had been doing instead for several years previously, was making a full-time living as an artist selling my paintings directly to the collecting public.

So why did I want to go into the galleries?
