|What role have the figures of art dealer, gallery owners, representatives, and intermediaries in general played in your career?
None. I've been a single Mom since I was 21. Unlike our male counterparts, once a woman decides to start a family, the amount of time to produce decreases drastically. Now that I'm turning 55 and the kids are grown, it's my time.
a passive role.
None. I wish they did.
At this point very minor.
Very little, probably to my own detriment, but they tend to be unpleasant to have business with, so I've done my level best to avoid them...
I believe marketing is key, I know many remarkably talented artists who never sell and many mediocre artists who can't produce enough to meet the demand. The difference I see is marketing.
Until recently I tried to stay out of galleries, but dealers, gallery owners, etc can and do often provide a much needed service. A good gallery will not only provide a physical space for your art but will actively market you and your works
They all have a place at one time or another in an artists' career. For the most part, I have found their influence to be positive and uplifting.
I have welcomed all reps. I paint; they represent.
In general, the art community is at best indifferent to my work. Many are hostile to my views, even though they will concede that it is good. In a community that prides itself on open-mindedness and diversity, I am a pariah for my views. Political conservatism is unwelcome in my experiences.
From 1978 to 1997 I relied on them, greatly.
I find them to be rude and critical now, and charging too much to treat artists as lost children. I do not participate.
None, I have no requirement for them.
they are sales men , do what I cannot do .
I have only dealt with gallery owners. They gave me important objective guidance and helped me along the way. I landed some teaching jobs because of many of the connections they had as well.
I have nothing to do with them.
