Online vanity galleries

On my quest to be brutally honest in this blog, I have a secret to tell you. Nothing fraudulent, but close to…perhaps just a rip off, although it could have been much much worse. Vanitu there be a rare sale, the gallery then charges a hefty commission. Then post on social media. Savvy salespersons at these galleries know how difficult it is for most artists to have work displayed at brick and mortar galleries. Hypothetically, many of these galleries promise the world and then fail Aunt julia cums deliver. I put Gay bareback trucker in quotations since everything that was done was legitimate, Online vanity galleries questionable from an ethical point of view. As stated before, it was more like being ripped off. In mid, one of my images was shortlisted for a photography prize in London. Nice experience and met interesting people. I had a pleasure of viewing your work at Online vanity galleries XX last Thursday. What we can offer you at this stage is to enter one of our shows below. XX rd November Cost: I look forward to your reply. Immediately, I carried out some galledies diligence to see if this was a Pornstar her brother gallery, or a scam. After I was satisfied that it was legitimate, I replied that I was interested. There were a few negative reviews but nothing to really discourage me from proceeding, at this stage. I subsequently sent my portfolio to the gallery with some fine art photographs, and asked the gallery to indicate which valleries of images would have the best prospect of success. After a day or so, I received the Goal keeper uniform exporter reply:. I was still interested nevertheless. Those are a lot of subs at Shutterstock. I figured that if I...

I am a visual artist as well as a freelance writer, and some time ago received an email which piqued my curiosity. At this point I had to laugh and a quick web search confirmed what I suspected: I was being solicited by a vanity gallery. And I also knew far better than to take the bait and do anything other than quickly file this email in my trash. To be represented or shown by a traditional gallery, an artist usually must work very hard, sometimes for years, submitting portfolios to different galleries for which he believes his work is suited. The process can be long, frustrating and not always successful, much like a writer trying to get accepted by a traditional publishing house. As such, the idea of getting shown for a fee by a vanity gallery can be tempting to struggling artists, as typically these galleries will accept any artist to show on their walls, as long as he can pay the fee. Art critics and savvy art consumers know to avoid vanity galleries, for the simple fact that there is no vetting control over whose work is shown and its quality. They have relationships with local and global arts publications and press, which means exhibits in their galleries can garner published reviews and attention. Since a traditional gallery gets no money from an artist until a work is actually sold, they have tremendous incentive and drive to advertise their current exhibits and bring potential customers to their gallery. Cooperatives are usually run by a group of artists who share in coop expenses and work together in selling their artwork. Therefore it can be a good place to show your work if you can find acceptance at one, and are willing to share in the operations, marketing and...

I was contacted by a vanity gallery and my first thought was that my art wasn't good enough to be in a gallery anywhere. I asked a fellow blogger about this weird email I received and she told me it was a vanity gallery. Glad I listened to my gut there. And I do believe it was in NY. If I ever have a vanity gallery, it will be in my own house where it is free! LOL Good topic as I'm sure there are others out there who have been contacted and thought it meant something wonderful. I had never heard of the term 'Vanity gallery' until about 2 yrs ago when a friend was approached by one. Galleries have always daunted me so even the thought of one actually approaching me about my work when I did any art work would have instantly aroused my suspicions. Thanks for all your useful information. I often refer people who are looking for help or information to your blog. I have gotten my share of unsolicited emails from these vanity galleries in the form of promises they will provide "marketing" and "exposure" for your career for a fee. That is the first red flag. Yes they do look like form letters. I have been "offered" to be published in a book for a fee too. What they don't tell you is what happens exactly once it' published. They will use vague phrases like "have you work seen by industry professionals" , what does that really mean? I had my work published in one but in that case the fee was nominal to cover the cost of publishing the book much like a juried competition and the reputation was legitimate. A real gallery will show interest in your work first without any...

This article is part of a series titled Let's Have and Ar t gument. This series is focused on exploring attitudes concerning what art can and should be. Furthermore, the series is designed to spur heated debate about 'hot topic' issues within the art world. Vent all you want Please sign up for The Art Edge newsletter if you enjoy this series. I recently explored the history of vanity galleries in the United States. The article spurred a lengthy Facebook debate about the career value of pay-to-play art exhibits. I was surprised to see supportive comments about vanity galleries. Several artists defended the vanity gallery model - stating that vanity galleries offer exhibit opportunities that would otherwise not exist. A few artists suggested that vanity gallery exhibits had helped them career-wise. In fact, one artist boldly claimed that he would have never gained gallery representation had he not started out with vanity galleries. This issue needs to be explored further In my opinion, vanity art galleries should NOT be viewed as a stepping stone toward greater things within the art world. I think pay-to-play vanity exhibits are a step back. I base my opinion on the experience I have working with a few Chelsea galleries in Manhattan. I know that people who frequent that scene tend to look down at vanity galleries. Reputation is everything in that 'world' -- involvement with a vanity gallery damages your reputation. You are paying to become the butt of a joke. You would be hard-pressed to find a famous living artist willing to acknowledge past participation with vanity exhibits. I can't think of one example! Extremely successful artists have either avoided said spaces OR have tried their best to conceal their history with them. Art galleries will likely not be interested in exhibiting an...

As a result, I know of many artists who tell me they have lost money, self-respect, time and dignity from making the wrong choices. My warning is beware of Vanity Galleries. I think it is important for artists to be aware of how vanity galleries operate. My first article about vanity galleries was originally published around 20 years ago in one of my newsletters, then in one of my books. My articles on the subject have since been republished and distributed to artists around the world in many magazines, websites and blogs. I have also discussed the topic in many lectures and in my private consulting practice. Case Scenario An artist recently e-mailed me a copy of a contract she received from a Chelsea, New York gallery. She was seriously considering this offer. Yes, she was eager — one might say desperate — to get her art on the map at any cost. This woman is just one of the many artists from around the world who has been keeping vanity galleries alive and thriving. And, as evidenced by my bulging folder labeled Vanity Gallery Contracts, this practice is multiplying. Due to the unbalanced proportion of artists to galleries, this way of doing business has become profitable and is here to stay. Before you read further I want to explain that I do not consider non-profit, artist-run galleries, also known as cooperative galleries, to be vanity galleries. Artist-run galleries are established to serve all members equally who share the expenses and share in decision-making process. The structure, in the areas of financial and operations, are very different than vanity galleries. In the future I will write another article about artist-run galleries. It was in the s that I first became aware of vanity galleries. To many people, an exhibition in...
