You may think it is impossible to set up your own gallery on a low budget.
However, I have come across a group of artists who have done just that. They jointly rented an empty shop in a small town and turned it into an art gallery.
Being a group of artists they offer quite a variety of styles and media. There is everything from paintings to hand made jewellery and sculptures.
They also invite guest artists to rent wall space for a month or two at a time. This helps to pay for the rental as well. They charge guest artists 20 percent commission on top of the rent yet it is quite attractive to the guests just the same.
They print brochures and posters for their artists and inform the local press. They even lay on a vernissage inviting all their contacts to open the visitor´s exhibition at the beginning of the month. That way they have a group of people come in at least once a month.
Do you have any thoughts on the matter?
