Clint Watson 's comment on 12 Steps to Get Your Artwork Noticed by Galleries

@Kathy Swift - I understand what you're saying, however, I often accepted artists with unprofessional portfolios (and cheesy frames for that matter) because they ART was so fantastic.

I agree portfolios SHOULD be professional and frames SHOULD be good quality, but I would NEVER turn down a great painter because of those reasons.

Several of my top-selling artists originally approached me with pretty unprofessional presentation and went on to be huge sellers for the gallery.

Frankly, the GALLERY can easily project a professional image and order frames so that the artist can focus on painting.

Just my "two cents."

Thank you for your feedback.
