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.

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”
A reader sent this in “Gallery 212, Wynwood, Miami Florida
I walked into the gallery last spring to see if they were looking at new artists work. I was told they were but here was the deal. It costs $900 a month to hang work on the walls. But in November and December during Art Basel Basel, the price is $3,200 a month. The gallery is located on the corner of 24th Street and 2nd Avenue. The main drag through Wynwood to all the fairs is Miami Avenue. 2nd Avenue is two long block or four shorter blocks west of Miami Ave. It’s not even on the main drag. Was told that during Basel they get thousands going through the gallery.”
Anyone else have comments?
