To Gallery or Not to Gallery [145]

Apple podcast


Have you ever wondered whether having your work in a gallery is the right choice for you?

This episode, we’re following from last week’s interview with a gallery owner and answering a listener question from Helen. She asked why we chose to represent ourselves rather than pursue the gallery route. Helen also asked: “can a female artist be self-representing and still find her place in the history books – or is it important to have the testimonial from an established gallery?”

When thinking about galleries, it’s important to know (a) where you want to go and (b) where you currently are. The art world often catches up and “discovers” artists late in life (or after their death), and we debate whether galleries will continue to play an important role as we move forward. Of course, we also answer Helen’s question and explain why we each decided not to market primarily through galleries. There’s lots more in this conversation, so don’t miss it!
