Why do galleries charge a fee to exhibit?
I have had the pleasure of running my own gallery in the South Norwood SE25 the place where I was born and bred.
A little over two years ago I was fortunate enough to be in a position to open a contemporary art gallery and serve the community the shaped and moulded me. It had always been a dream of mine to have my own gallery one day so I have ticked that box.
I am an artist and have exhibited many times in the UK and abroad. I had no experience of running an art gallery, laying on group exhibitions, coordinating groups of artists so everything runs smoothly, the endless hours of updates, social media and advertising etc. I just knew of my own experiences and how I would have liked things to go when I was a new / emerging artist. I too have had to pay fees to exhibit, plenty of times on one occasion I paid £500 for 1 week and 3m of wall space!
