What are “below market studios?”
subsidized studio spaces?
Below market studios are below typical studio costs in the area
the studios are priced below market rates. affordable.
How does one find them?
search on "artist studio" in your area and then start calling every studio space that comes up. They wont necessarily say "below market" in whatever you find online. Also look for arts nonprofits - sometimes they have studios and typically try to offer them below market.
I’m hoping that the gallerists will speak to the anxiety new collectors often feel when dealing with galleries. Tips for dealing with galleries and overcoming this anxiety!?
good question! I’ll note it for later. Thanks Nicki!
What’s happened to the prices for Amy Sherald’s work since her wonderful portrait of Michelle Obama?
Looking at Clare Rojas’ work, seems like it’s kind of a melding of Indigenous art and Latina art????? Reminds me a bit of the art of the Northwest here in the U.S. Love it.
How do gallerists decide which and how many artists to represent?
Love Clare's Black & White 2020
Love this Rose B. Simpson piece! Wow!
When you are representing a hot artist, how do you decide who to sell an artwork to, when you have multiple offers? The notion of first come first serve doesn’t really work if certain collectors or institutions are given previews. How does that system of deciding who to preview and who to expose a work to really work?
How do you feel about a site like collecteurs.com, which allows collectors to share works they’ve purchased that might not otherwise be seen outside of the owner’s home?
In other words, Is it hard for a gallery owner or an artist they represent to have a piece be purchased and then disappear (e.g., the Van Gogh that was just released after being in one family’s home for 100 years).
What about photography?
So important to remember that gallerists love art and their artists and want to help promote artists they love. It’s not just money or snobbery! Not at all!
what about working with a consultant— why would I chose to do this? when, how
Good question! Next social club will include art advisors so we’ll go deeper into that topic.
Any other questions for our panelists?
What do you NOT want a client to do? Someone said earlier not to come in asking for a picture for above the couch . . . .
I miss art fairs in person.
how do payment plans work with your respective galleries?
