Market research sources?

Hello, folks, I’m in the middle stages of business plan development
around a new business for myself, which incorporates a studio and
gallery business. However, I’ve been having trouble finding any
good published sources for jewelry / fine art market research…
most of what I’ve found is rather anecdotal, which is not what I’d
like to include in my business plan.

Can anyone point me to reliable sources for "state of the industry"
reports on the gallery business in the united states, particularly
galleries dealing in jewelry art, small sculpture, and metalwork?

Any good resources for gallery owners online?

Many thanks!
Karen Goeller

The Guerilla Marketing handbook is excellent, (Dave Geller posted a
great list of suggestions on the list, check the archives) and Brad
Simon’s book on running a jewelry shop is absolutely fantastic.
