How Not to Get a Gallery
1. Keep your art in a closet so no one can see it – because you know it is so good that the world will discover it anyway. Maybe posthumously.
2. Don’t visit any galleries. But if you must go, pretend to be a buyer. Gallery staff treat buyers so much better than unknown artists. Then leave before they realize that you are the talented artist they have been trying to track down for months.
3. Avoid contests, juried shows, artist calls, and any requests for portfolio reviews. If they are so easy to get into, they must have very low standards..
