I live in Taos NM and am in a small gallery here. I would like to be in a gallery in Santa Fe but have encountered years of rude and or dismissive behavior from the "professionals" working at the galleries. If they notice paint on your clothes instead of a fancy watch on your wrist they are almost always dismissive. I have never wandered in with a painting or even asked who to speak with because they immediately tell you sales are bad and they have too many artist already. I get where they're coming from to a degree, being busy trying to hustle what they already carry. But if what you are selling isn't selling then maybe you need to at least look at something new.
