The gallery that I have dreamed about putting my work in here in
Texas wants just a “handshake” agreement and offers no insurance.
Since I am new to the business and I have read so many posts from
artists/gallery owners saying this is not the norm, I am interested
to know whether galleries in Texas commonly ask for this arrangement
or if I just got hold of the exception to the rule. I have not sent
my work to the gallery yet, and although it is in a busy shop in a
resort town here in Texas, I definitely have cold feet.
