Caelum Gallery

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.”

Freight + Volume Gallery

a reader sent in this post, any other feedback? 97 Allen Street, New York, NY 10002 Had a piece in a show back in 2013 and the Gallery purchased it but never sent me a payment. Had many emails back and forth and had to go into the gallery multiple times asking for a status of my check but everyone claimed not to know anything about it or why the payment is missing.

Ico Gallery

Another New York City venue with a mixed reputation, Ico Gallery offers the same “deal” as the other pay to play places. For an upfront fee, artists are given space to display their work. The gallery is in the habit of sending unsolicited emails just as many other vanity venues do. The emails explain that they have viewed work online and would like to offer a show if the artist is willing to put up the cost at the outset. If you haven’t begun to pick up on the general thread of things by now, let’s be very clear. An…
