Van der Plas Gallery
I was contacted by this gallery via Instagram. It is a brick and mortar site. I got suspicious because my art doesn’t look anything like what they have displayed in the past. The charge large fees up front per piece
● 1 painting/drawing/print, up to 14” x 11” $150 ● 1 painting/drawing/print, up to 24” x 18” $200 ● 1 painting/drawing/print, up to 40” x 30” $250
And of course there are other fees and 50% commission
I didn’t take Adriaan Van der Plas up on the invitation
Yeah. Me you and the fence post this is a vanity gallery supported by family money, not a client list.
While you certainly can’t blame a gallery for trying selling wall space for a space that doesn’t do art fairs, has passive pass thru traffic And a limited understanding of social media as a sales tool is a challenge at best
There’s a lack and poverty culture here. Avoid.
