Thanks to all who wrote to me in response to opening a gallery.
Contracts to wholesale accounts, I think I'm on the right track. I've
1. Pay on time (no brainer)
2. If doing consignment, 40/60 split is acceptable
3. Keep excellent records and correspond regularly with the artists.

I plan on keeping in close contact with the artists, encourage them with
their work, and learn about their techniques and what makes their work
unique. I'd like to educate the "Average Joe or Jane" about the pieces
and let them know that everything is hand-made in studios all over the
country by hard working artists. (sounds like an oath) I have many
ideas and can hardly wait to begin. Thanks again for all of the
suggestions. Mary Lou Zeek/Oregon

Very valuable as a marketing tool; I'm sure Chris Campbell will chime in a a
positive note, as well. So far, I've only done the internet listing, not
the brochure.
A big "however" is that I don't yet have a catalogue and have been very
limited in sales because of it. I strongly recommend you don't list with
(probably) anyone, unless you have a catlogue/brochure ready to mail upon

Yes, I belong to since October of last year. I have had
some moderate sales from site but feel it will be better this year. Their
website is excellent, they have done some nice advertising of the artists'
works. They'll give you a password, I believe, and you can check out the
Good luck,
