Q: How do I find a gallery to represent my work?
A: It takes a bit of research to find galleries that would be a best fit for your work, but it is the only way to actually get into a gallery. Check www.art-collecting.com : this site has pretty comprehensive lists of galleries and museums throughout the US by State and City, with links to their webs sites, plus a host of other info. Once you have these lists, you can research the galleries in areas where you want to show to see if your work would be a good fit and then contact them to see if they are looking at new artists.
