Hi, Clint,
You hit the nail on the head when you wrote about the disadvantages of walking in, calling, writing, and e-mailing. The trouble is that there's no good way to make first contact with galleries.
If I walk into a gallery and try to promote my work, I'm a door-to-door salesman.
If I call the gallery, I'm a telemarketer.
If I send materials through the mail, I'm a junk mailer.
If I contact them by e-mail, I'm a spammer.
In other words, I have to become one of the four kinds of people I despise the most. Now you know why gallery owners hate artists.
