Galería Gaudí

Galería Gaudí in Madrid -they offered to exhibit 5 works in Singapore for €1,400 with 40% commission. Work was to be exhibited in a hotel, (which I hear is fairly common in Singapore) but unlikely to attract uninvited guests

Vogue magazine in the U.K. contacted me saying they wanted to feature my paintings in an interior design pull out. Of course I was delighted until I found out they were actually trying to sell me a small tacky advertising spot.

Below is the fee break-down that this agent will charge you. Remember, on top of it, the artists are responsible for shipping the work to and from the amenity. AND they will charge a 30% commission on sold work. They probably make money on artist fees alone. There is no incentive for them to sell your work. When you receive a message from this agent wanting to promote you work, do not bother your time message back.

Reader submitted – any feedback or experience from others?

Gallery DeBoer located in Owen Sound, Ontario, Canada. Total scammer the owner Ron De Boer is. Artists beware. He takes his 50% commission fails to call artists when their work sells, charges over the top delivery fees for a 10 minute delivery, intentionally hides work in the galleries storage area ( in hopes it will be lost or the artist will forget the work is there) and frequently adds random fees to artists without consent or permission. I was charged an additional $100 for them to copy and paste my bio to their website. They claim it’s a standard fee for three seconds of work. Numerous artists have been ripped off with hidden fees and a total lack of professionalism. The worst part is the gallery seems to enjoy taking advantage of its artists. They feel they are justified in their slimy way of doing business with hard working artists.

They take advantage of artists and performers by having them put down a deposit to use the space and charge show goers food and drinks money. If they make enough with the guests, then the artists are not charged for using the space. They do not have a tip jar for the artists and keep all the money for themselves. Diana Beshara (http://www.dianabeshara.com) and her boyfriend run the place. I went there to see a friend perform, they did not specify on their events page that there would be a door fee, so I thought it was a free show. When I got there, Diana kept badgering me to buy a drink, lied about the door fee and started a tip jar for the artists after I inquired about not seeing one. My friend who I went to see perform later on told me that they did not give them any money.

They only care about the money, and will ruin their own reputation over a non existent $10 door fee.

Ricky Pantele of Incredible Artists in California seems highly professional and enthusiastic but has been known to want to change the terms of the contract after signing. Proceed with caution.

I had problems with the Artrom Gallery in Rome, Italy. It took me 3 years to get my work back after an invitational exhibit. I was not the only one either, I found another artist that was waiting for her work ever. longer. I found this artist when the gallery owner sent me some pictures after I wrote her many times, where she exhibited my work without my permission with this other artist, well, more like decorated her apartment. Together we got her to finally return our work.

Art Fusion

A reader writes the following, any feedback / experience here?

Miami has a crazy load of galleries in the area called “Wynwood”. LOTS of artists want to be here and it has become so saturated with graffiti you can barely find the front door to a gallery. This saturation has created the next wave which is moving northward, same avenue but northbound. In this Wynwood area is a two story gallery “Art Fusion” jammed with paintings and photography. To make a long story short, just so you know, they charge wall space. 5′ x 10′ = $1800/month. I asked an employee after looking at endless pieces, “is there a best selling artist or artists here?” Answer: “Yes the owner”
