A reader wrote this – any experience here or feedback? “Caelum Gallery in Chelsea, New York City, is a vanity gallery. Several years ago, I walked in with another artist and the gallery director came over and engaged us in conversation. He took my card and said he’d look at my web site. Then I got a letter from him offering me a section of the gallery for a show — for a $3,000 fee. No, thanks.”
I had the same experience years ago. The show they offered was only 2 weeks. They act like non vanity gallery owners which is why I brought my work to them all the way from Maryland. They even struck up a conversation with another artist while I was showing them my work! They are vanity all the way. I declined after realizing I’d been fooled.
