Nude Tin Can gallery from St Albans, UK

Hi, I would like to report attitude of Nude Tin Can gallery from St Albans, UK. It’s a scam! The owner sells works of artists and never pays them!

My friends also had work lost and damaged without any compensation. Artwork gets exhibited in offices across London and the artists receive no money.…

Studio Visit Magazine

I’d like to know if anyone has had an experience with Studio Visit Magazine? Yes it is a pay to play I guess. I had to pay just over $200 in February to be featured in the magazine if I was chosen which I was.

I wrote two emails and they never got back to me however I finally got an email in mid to late August saying this: “We appreciate your patience during the past…
