Brian provided some excellent information.
If you are doing mailing to new galleries, your chances of being accepted is very slim.
I teach you do an Internet search on those you think your work will fit in. Phone for an appointment and then drive your samples to the prospective gallery. Even there is no promise they will carry your work. It's up to you to sell them.
Most galleries get a stack of brochures and letters from artists each week. Those they receive gets tossed in he dumpster. Try for a face to face.
With 35 to 40 percent of all art galleries closing in the past 2.5 years there are a great amount of artists looking for representation. Many excellent talents.
In the past two years we have had 4 of our galleries close. One had been in business 30 years. The art economy is rough.
