How to Sell Like the Galleries - Art Marketing for Artists
Alan Bamberger
Collectors can buy art wherever they want, but even with all the online buying platforms out there these days, many still choose to shop exclusively with galleries or dealers. When asked why they prefer shopping this way to buying directly from artists, their most common answers are that artists can sometimes be difficult to deal with and can tend to present problems the galleries don't.

Should Independent Artists Seek Gallery Representation?
Alan Bamberger
Q: I make my living selling my art out of my studio, at open studios, art festivals, art walks, and recently started trying to sell online. I don't make a lot of money, but have done OK outside of the traditional gallery world for years by selling direct to buyers. I've had a handful of shows during that time, but only at small galleries and exhibition spaces run by friends. I have Instagram and Facebook pages and a website, but don't really do much with them and to be honest, am not all that interested. As a result, people outside my area art community know little or nothing about me and my art. What's the best way to approach more established galleries for shows? Or should I even bother? I have plenty of completed artworks available, and I continue to create new work all the time.

What Good Are Art Dealers and Gallery Owners?
Alan Bamberger
Nobody likes art dealers or galleries. Artists don't like them because they keep half the price of every piece of art they sell. People who buy art don't like them because they charge top dollar. Even dealers don't like dealers, but that's another article. So do art gallery owners and dealers do anything other than inject themselves into art business transactions, jack prices, take cuts, and extract cash? Let's explore.

Sarah Jones
Maintaining a distinct profile as a gallery, whilst undergoing a change in premises, comes with its challenges.
London, in common with any centuries-old city, changes its nature from borough to borough, street to street. Hay Hill Gallery’s Sarah Jones takes a brisk attitude to change, seeing it as an essential part of the gallerist’s craft. Hanging Offence sets the questions.
Bruce Hamilton Clark 'Tea Was A Yellow Fish. Memoirs and Paintings'.
First published in 2013 by Analecta Publishing.

Born in 1937, just before the Second World War, Bruce Clark lived in London during the early years of intensive bombing, and was later evacuated to Scotland. His family was homeless when the war ended and eventually settled in Surrey, where he attended a local grammar school. He worked in a London office before joining the RAF in the mid-1950s, serving in Berlin in the days before the notorious wall was built. In 1958 he became a student at a unique art school, Bath Academy of Art, at Corsham, and proceeded to a teaching career which spanned the full age range from infants to post-graduates. The first twelve years were spent in two secondary modern schools in different parts of the country. He was employed as a school inspector in the formative years of OFSTED, and also produced and exhibited paintings during a period of over fifty years.

The Great Britain - Russia Society
Russian Art In London. The Commercial Dimension
Article by Ann Kodicek,
August 2005
Twenty years ago, Bond Street bustled with newly liberated Russian artists, presenting their portfolios to the Western art world. For a time, every gallery had its Russian artist. Russian art, of every kind, was “in”, and selling by the arshin. Then people learned that the Union of Artists (to which virtually all these artists belonged) was not the Soviet equivalent of the Royal Academy and that these artists, even at home, were largely unknown. Prices plummeted, collectors began to hate their purchases, salerooms were lumbered with shiftless works and Russian artists worth their salt moved on to Germany or USA. ...
