Attention Artists: Do you need help finding the right gallery?

The subject of applying to galleries is frequent among artists. Much information about how to organize and submit a portfolio is available, but how do you know where to apply? What do you look for in a gallery? How do you find reasonable matches for the type of artwork you do? If this subject is of interest, I’m teaching a workshop June 26th at JERRY’S ARTARAMA in Austin. Drop me an email for workshop registration info at
