So, I have a question for people represented by galleries..
The main (and only to this point) gallery that I deal with does not have an exclusivity agreement with me. I recently took a series of paintings (4) that have been there for 3+ years and not sold back. They were starting to be rarely displayed and figured it was time to take them back.
I contacted another galley about their interest in selling them and they are very interested. However, their general client budget is much lower than my other gallery, so I cant price my paintings as high. I am fine with that since at this point they are 4 years old and I am ready to be rid of them, but I am also aware of the danger devaluizing my work. In the same respect, its not like I am some super famuos artist that everyone knows about... Is it okay to use another gallery as my sort of "discounted work" gallery with out stating that publicly?
Hope everyone is well! I haven't been able to jump on DMP for a while. I got sick and was hospitalized with covid... diagnosed with Acute Respiratory failure with Hypoxia! It was very scary for a while, especially with two young kids and a husband at home. Thankfully I fully recovered and am trying to get back to work. Never fails! Seems SOMETHING always gets me behind the 8ball come the new year!!
Anyway hope everyone is well and hope to be more active in the forum again!
