i am very upset. the objects of desire gallery in louisville, ky has
had my work since last july. then, I made a special group of
one-of-a-kind work just for the gallery that i delivered in october.
i was really excited to be involved with this gallery!
i have called over 10 times and had friendly chats about how well my
work is selling. i asked for a check, and in november was told i
would be getting one. It never came.
i called in january and was told i would be getting a check. it
i did get a statement telling me what work had sold and how much i
am owed. over $1500.
i emailed at the end of january and did not receive a reply. so i
called 3 days later and was told a check was in the mail. 4 weeks
later, no check. so i called again 9 days ago and was told…oops!
looks like we had the wrong zip code. she would put the check in the
mail that night. no check a week later. i emailed yesterday asking
when i would receive the check. no reply.
needless to say, i still have not received a check. i am super
pissed. i am also super pissed at myself for not signing a
consignment contract with her. i felt ok about the situation because
the gallery represents some really good artists and has an
established name. that is my fault. but that shouldn’t mean she
keeps my money.
i am wondering 2 things: has anyone else had a problem with this
gallery? and what the heck should i do?
I am livid! i wish i were a less trusting person! but really, i am
glad i am not… i just want MY money!
thanks for any input.
