Thanks to Ingrid Donaldson and The Blink Gallery!
Thanks go out to Blink gallery owner Ingrid Donaldson for talking with us on January 16th. She covered many things including tips on approaching and selecting a gallery to carry your work, as well as things to look for in a consignment contract. Importance was placed on professionalism in presentation and researching your target to know what type of work they carry and who their audience is. She also shared what is looked for in the artists/artwork carried at their gallery and the reasoning behind their approach to the rotation of the work. Other things mentioned addressed issues of pricing and whether galleries require exclusivity or not.
The Blink Gallery has an open call for new artists. For more information go to http://www.theblinkgallery.com/
