What to look for in gallery representation…

Since the summer of 2011, some of my artwork is being represented by The Bender Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. Miles Bender is the owner the gallery and he has done a great job of displaying my sculptures and of finding a new audience for it in an exciting part of the country.

Because I am a fairly new artist and am particularly new to the gallery scene, it can be difficult to know what to look for in a gallery. With The Bender Gallery, it became immediately clear to me that my artwork would fit in nicely with the other glass artists that he represents. The Bender Gallery deals in high end glass art, so it just made sense. It also helps to find a gallery dealer who is easy to work with and who knows how to disply my artwork in a way that heightens its’ effect. Additionally, Asheville¬†is an up and coming place in every sense of the word, but particularly when it comes to anything cultural.

Obviously, the economy is suffering and this is a difficult time to sell art, but it helps to know that I have found a place where my art fits and is slowly gathering a new audience.¬† The gallery’s website is www.thebendergallery.com .
