...And this practice may be a new topic of discussion. Why do so
many artists sell "wholesale" to what should be "retail" customers
and raise prices when they are being represented by a gallery???
My comments: I don't have the time to have people calling me or
"dropping by" out of the blue to look through my work. I have work to
do after all. When someone calls, I explain most of my work is in
galleries anyway, very little finished work is kept in my workshop. I
tell them I will sell the production piece for the same price as the
gallery and then give the gallery where they have seen my work their
commission. This has happened very seldom since I don't have the work
to show them here and a lot of my work is one-of-a-kind anyway. I do
make exceptions for friends...
In the case of the current Zyzyx gallery problem, I guess I would
sell the customer the piece, same price as the gallery and keep all
of it, then call the gallery and tell them what happened and if it
happened again they would receive no more of my work. I don't need
"help" like that.
