Artists use caution: vanity gallery

AMSTERDAM WHITNEY GALLERY in NYC received our book, Art Buzz, The 2014 Collection, and much to out dismay, we have been alerted that they are a vanity gallery. We have heard that several of the artists in the 2014 Art Buzz Collection have been contacted by this NYC gallery. Unless you want to pay over $2,000 to be represented by this gallery, we do not recommend galleries that charge fees other than the standard commission rates. You can make your own decision but you have been informed. Sorry for the not-so-good news.

Creative Regards,
Your Friends at Art Buzz

  1. Thank you for the information. Can you elaborate more about the galleries that only charge commission? I’m noticing in this day and age that many galleries do not offer commissions anymore. Can you share with me some of the galleries that only offer commision? I appreciate your reply.

    Thank you,

    • In NY reputable galleries charge 30-50% commission on the sale but will never charge the artist personally anything at all. Galleries that are pay to play have no interest in actually selling your work, that is why they are charging a fee just to put it in their space.
