Re: Selling paintings via virtual galleries, is it really?

Not sure what that sends you to but might work. I normally get galleries and look at their inventory. I don't collect art like your Dad produced but I collect modern masters and those galleries that carry modern masters become pretty obvious in a search. You might call the art society in NYC and get...

Re: Selling paintings via virtual galleries, is it really?

On line you can research galleries in NYC for example. There are 1000's of them. You can probably find 100 or more who carry similar work. Galleries in LA and San Fran have similar options . Not sure I have time to research them all for you. Wouldn't shoot down restaurants however as I have sold two...

Re: Selling paintings via virtual galleries, is it really?

I might suggest a gallery that handles work similar to your dad's where mostly buyers go. If they are familiar with the kind of pieces that gallery carries and spend the time going to a gallery location then they would compare your dad's work to others and perhaps buy.. much of my work has sold from...

Re: Question before selling on FM

P.S.Freakyfingers, I assume your images put on this site (not artstock) are 4000-5000 pixels where as an image you would sell is perhaps 10000 pixels or better. While my pieces on this site blur lines the better quality and originals do not. If they want the poor quality images maybe you could just ...

Re: Question before selling on FM

Freaky ringers, there is no limit in time for copyrights. You own the image forever unless you assign rights to another party. The problem comes into play when you have to sue to defends your rights. Big expense normally and to collect money you have to prove the other party made money from your wor...

Re: I am looking for an artist adviser to define suitable galleries for my paintings, can you help?

Wow, first it would seem someone has to decide your work is good enough to get into galleries. Walk in a local gallery and show them your work. If they decide to carry you great. Then see how your sales go. If you actuately get sales and can establish a record then you can consider someone to market...

Re: art pricing

Zeuslight, pricing is what the market bears. A gallery, if you can get one to display your work will price it for you based on what they think will sell. Many galleries get a commission as much as 40% so make sure you are OK with the balance to you. If you submit to competitions to sell then look at...
