Chapter 9 : Gallery List

This is a very diverse list of galleries who sell ceramics. Very often galleries they are great liaison for artisans and collectors and champions for the field. In my experience, they have earned their 50%. Many artist also sell their work directly through their own website or through Etsy ( In addition, a group of artist have gotten together and started their own version of Etsy, its called Dizbe (discover art) – check it out!

Please read Sandy Simon’s, Avra Leodas and Jeff Guido’s interviews in Chapter 9 for more information about working with galleries.

“Approaching a Gallery”

by Leigh Taylor Michelson, Executive Director, Clay Art Center

“There are a lot of ways to approach a gallery or art center for exhibiting your work. But the best way, at least for me, is to first introduce yourself. If an artist takes the time to email me, call me or visit me, and ask me first if they can show me their work, or how they can exhibit with us, then I have the opportunity to let them know what I am looking for and how it would be best for them to show me their work. I can let them know HOW to apply for an exhibit, or how to be considered for our shop. I find that if I get a blanket email from artist, with their website address, that while I might look, I don’t take the same amount of time, and often look and then move on. I know that it is a mass email, and the artists intentions are not at all clear. What does this artist want? If he/she just wants me to look at their website, then that may or may not happen. If I know the artist is following the procedure for applying for an exhibition, or specifically expressing their interest in CAC, I would handle that email in a completely different way. I actually consider it, file it, and bring it forward to my gallery committee. That individualized attention really makes a difference.

Another really important thing is to look for a gallery whose aesthetic matches your own. Many commercial galleries, for instance, have a style or a genre. Look at the artists they already represent. Would your work be a fit? A gallery’s list of artists usually matches a gallery’s collector base. If a gallery does not see their patrons buying your work, then it is less likely they will take you on. So knowing who you are approaching and why is paramount. If you think your work is the right fit, then take the time to call or email, as stated above, and clearly state your intentions and see if they are even looking for new artists. This attention to detail will not be missed.”
