The Prosperous Artists blog had a helpful post last week about working with clients - "Do you work with or for your client?"
Not enough clients or commissions? With the sale of your artwork, The Art League Gallery gives the purchaser your resume, web site and other marketing materials (never your contact information). That is, we give it to them if we have it! Be sure to provide us with your resume, artist statement and postcards from your other gallery shows and events. Market yourself!
Send materials to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail them to the gallery at:
105 N. Union St
Alexandria, VA 22314
We also keep track of those interested in your work, and contact you with their information as we get it. Be sure to follow up on these contacts, because keeping in touch can often result in SALES.
Best of luck with your clients!
