Art Marketing Resources

The art world is a vast and diverse place. It is full of people, places, resources and opportunities that can help you expand your network and grow as an artist. We’ve compiled a list of resources for you to consider if you’re looking for more information about how to navigate the art market landscape or what steps to take once your artwork has been accepted into a gallery.

Art Market Resources

There are plenty of resources out there for you to use in your art marketing efforts. These include galleries, museums, artists, sales and workshops. Look for tips from experts on how to sell your work through these channels as well as advice from art dealers who can help you with pricing and marketing strategies.

Some galleries can also find a gallery that will represent your work if you don’t have one yourself.

What is an art dealer?

An art dealer is someone who buys and sells art, usually with the purpose of representing artists. They can also sell the work of other kinds of artists, like designers or illustrators. They might have a gallery to display their works (and those of others), but they are also often involved in private sales and auctions.

An art dealer has many roles: they’re a financial backer for artists, an agent who represents them, an educator when it comes to pricing and selling their work.

Where do you find art dealers?

Art dealers aren’t hard to find, but you may have to do some research. There are many online resources that can help you find art dealers in your area, including:

  • Google search
  • Local business directories like Yellowpages and Yelp (if you’re looking for a dealer in a specific city)

If you already know someone who sells art, ask them for referrals. If not, go to local fairs and markets where artists are selling their work—you’ll be surprised how many people will be willing to talk with you about their experience selling art!

How can I find an art dealer?

To find an art dealer, you first need to identify the type of art you create. If your work has a similar style and subject matter to other artists that are represented by a particular gallery, it’s a good idea to research the gallery and its artists. Look at their website and social media presence: do they post about upcoming shows? What kind of clientele do they serve? How can you contact them?

Once you have an idea of what galleries represent artists whose work interests you, begin researching those galleries as well. Check out their websites and see if any galleries are willing or able to represent someone like yourself: look at their portfolios online and see if they include anyone who creates similar work as yours. If so, contact that artist through his/her website or LinkedIn profile (if he/she has one) and ask him/her if he/she had any luck getting representation from this particular gallery; this will give insight into how receptive he/she was when dealing with said gallery as well as whether or not there were any complications during negotiations between himself/herself and said gallery manager.

When does a gallery accept my work?

  • When does a gallery accept my work?

Galleries accept work year round, but some have specific submission periods and some have specific submission requirements. Some galleries accept work based on the quality of your work, not the price.

What are the components of an art gallery?

  • Artists. If you have an art dealer, then they are the ones who will be selling your work in a gallery. So if you want to learn more about artists, look at their websites or social media accounts. They may even have an artist statement that explains what kind of work they do and why they make it.
  • Art and galleries. Galleries display works of art to be sold by an artist or dealer. Most contemporary art galleries also sell other things like jewelry, sculptures, photography (as long as it’s not digital), antiques and collectibles as well as unique clothing items like hats or shoes made from recycled materials such as old clothes or discarded fabric scraps from fashion companies’ production lines when creating new garments for their clients!

What should you know before you approach a gallery or dealer to represent your work?

  • Know your work.
  • Know your audience.
  • Know your price points.
  • Know what you want from the gallery or dealer. Is it exposure, money, or recognition? If so, how much of each?
  • Know how to market yourself as an artist and how to showcase your work (gallery openings, shows, etc).

Will a gallery give advice or critique my work?

If you’re a new artist, galleries can provide a lot of help to improve your work and get them into the right hands. Galleries will be able to tell you if your work is appropriate for their gallery and the market they serve. They may also have suggestions on how you can improve it, or what galleries who are interested in your work might want from an artist like yourself.

They might also be able to guide you through finding an agent if that’s something that interests you as well.

Can a gallery assist me in pricing my work?

Can a gallery assist me in pricing my work?

It depends on whether or not the gallery is willing to help you with all of these costs. Most galleries are not going to give away anything for free. Galleries charge a commission based on the amount they sell your artwork for, so they want to make sure they get as much money out of their sales as possible (just like any other business). If a gallery is willing to take care of framing and shipping expenses, then maybe it might be worth considering this option. If you don’t know how much your framing will cost yet, then I would wait until after you have decided where you want to show your work before getting quotes from different framers just so that we can see what kind of range there may be when it comes down determining what would be most affordable option available today whereby making sure that everyone involved gets paid fairly without breaking anyone’s bank account in order

Is there anything special I need to bring to a gallery visit?

When you visit a gallery, it’s important to make a good impression. If a gallery owner likes your work, they may show it to other people who are looking for art.

You’ll need to bring your business cards and a portfolio of your work with you. The gallery owner will want to know what kind of artist you are before deciding whether or not they want to show your art.

In addition, when visiting galleries:

  • Dress appropriately for the type of art that is displayed in each space (for example, if you’re going into an industrial-style loft with metal sculptures on display, don’t wear jeans and flip-flops). It’s also good practice to dress nicely even if there’s no one else in attendance at the gallery; this way, if someone else shows up later (such as another artist), they will know that they can take their time at viewing all the pieces without feeling rushed or rushed out by someone else’s arrival.
  • Be prepared with ideas about how all aspects of each piece relate back toward its meaning or message so that when asked these questions by staff members and owners alike during conversations both before and after viewing them individually during open hours hours.”
