Predator Galleries.

My dear friend Natalia Andreeva, who is a wonderful painter (her website), lives in Florida. I live in Michigan, and we don't see each other too often. This week our paths crossed in Yellowstone(!) and we had an opportunity to talk and talk (but not enough). I would like to share one of the things we talked about: "pay-to-show" or predator galleries. Artists, be careful! Such galleries are not interested in selling your art and promoting you. They imitate art activity to receive your money. Reputable galleries do not charge the artist for a show. A short time ago Natalia received an email from ICO gallery. It was not just an invitation, it is a threatening letter. Read it hereh
