Contacting buyers (Consignment)


#1

Sometimes consignment is a viable alternative. There are many
galleries who might be interested in carrying the work of an artist
but for a variety of reasons buying outright isn’t their first
preference. Some of the factors involved could be the price range,
style of work, an unknown new or emerging artist, the uncertainty of
their clientele’s response, etc…

In many of these cases consignment is a vehicle which can work well
for both the artist and the gallery owner. Consignment is sometimes
the only way to get your work featured in certain venues which
otherwise might not choose to represent it. When the work is
consigned the terms and percentages may vary from one situation to
the next.

My necklaces retail in the $10000 range, so they are not exactly an
item which typically sells everyday. I have found representation
through consigned exhibition works well for me, and it allows the
galleries to display and sell rather expensive pieces which they
might not feel comfortable at first, in purchasing outright.
