I received an invite from a GALLERY IN LONDON via e-mail asking me to participate in an INTERNATIONAL GROUP SHOW. They talked about organizing PR, marketing, special staff, sales, etc. Naturally, I was very excited. A show in London!

Then, I enquired back to the gallery to find out that they’re inviting me to pay to showcase my work at the cost of £250 a week for 3 meters of space. AND, “ALL I WOULD HAVE TO DO IS ORGANIZE THE DELIVERY AND PICK UP OF ARTWORKS.”

So, as the English pound is just about double our dollar, I would be paying $494.07 per week, $1,976.28 total, to show 5 pieces of artwork, plus shipping, plus insurance in an unknown gallery in London.

Now, from my experience, and what I was told in school, a gallery not only arranges for the pick-up and delivery of your pieces, but takes on all other costs of Marketing and PR and Sales as a matter of basic contract. And, you NEVER pay to show your work.

Does anyone have different information? Am I right to be as angry as I am?

Just as a note. All of my art pieces have a quotation and a butterfly.

The butterfly is a marking similar to the Chinese stamp, an identifier.
I use the butterfly in different formats in relationship to the piece.

The quotations are like little poems about how I am reacting to the piece at the time, and what the scene or image means to me from my current perspective.

I hope for these pieces to be compelling enough to evolve. I hope they are added to with new stamps and new quotations by people reacting in their way to what they see and adding their perspective.

I hope to post these variations as people create them.

Please comment in my guestbook.
