What kind of arrangement do artists have with the galleries that show their work?
I’m talking about the kind you go into where paintings or photographs are on display and they are all for sale. Maybe they aren’t even called galleries…I’m not really sure… What kind of arrangement do the art creators have with the gallery?
Who mats and frames – artist or gallery? Do the artists “rent the space” or do the galleries pay the artist for the work up front? Or is it some kind of consignment arrangement where you get paid only if it sells?
