ADC – Art Comes Alive Competition

My art came back from this show destroyed. Their framer wrapped it for shipping and either it was damaged in their gallery or during shipping. Either way – that’s on them. They’ve washed their hands of it. Very unprofessional.

my experience with EAP

Hello everybody! first of all: thank you very much for this chat! i have the same problems. the contact was good at the beginning, all my emails were answered – until the time I paid the fee. Suddenly nobody contacted me anymore. I contacted my bank today to get the money back. I will also file a complaint. It cannot be that artists are exploited to make money. I can only advise everyone against doing business with EAP.

The Emerging Artist Platform Hansford & Sons

I too have had problems with them. They are very difficult to get hold of. I sent an email via their website and have never received a reply (only an automated acknowledgement of receipt of my email). The telephone number on their website does not work and google brings up the number as a nuisance caller. The only way I got my page created was by pestering the 2 scouts who originally contacted me through Instagram, (even one of those ignored my request until I made a bigger fuss!) I did consider that maybe they are short staffed because of…

Galeria Azur Madrid

This gallery contacted me through Instagram. I don’t want to sound rude, but what first caught my eye was the low quality of the artwork they were displaying. That can be disputed of course. It will cost the artist 1000€ to get 2 pieces on display in their physical group exhibition + 1 piece is there in the back room just in case (for what exactly??). The group exhibition lasts about a month. Also you get up to 10 pictures of your artworks for their online exhibition (including the 3 you sent them to the physical exhibition). They put them…

Dab Art, got accepted but now afraid!

I’ve been reading bad reviews about this gallery, all of their locations. I was curated recently into an upcoming show. I live an hour away and was about to deliver my work for the take-in when I found all the bad reviews.I am supposed to drop off my artwork for a supposed “reception“ but now I’m afraid to do so for fear of wasting my time and maybe not getting my art work back. Did anybody have any good experiences with an actual opening and getting their work back in good condition? Should I just avoid the take-in and reception…

this artist is horrible to deal with. Really aggressive and negative, and her eyes are on the side of her head. She looks like an alien.

Emerging Artist Platform & Handsfords and sons are absolute pieces of crap.

This horrible couple Lucian Hector and Jazz Davies are frauds. I knew they were dodgy at first especially Lucian. I don’t know how I could even trust them. They looked professional and all because they had a big black car and carried your paintings to the exhibition studio. But one day they did the worst thing imaginable. The ripped my paintings to pieces and blamed it on me for getting cheap canvas when we were carrying them in our hands. They then made me sign a contract which I’m glad I refused because many people say that they are charging…
