Galleries – Rene Gimpel of Gimpel Fils suggests:
Checkout the gallery’s programme for the year.
Type of visitor.
The relationship has to be one of trust.
Care has to be taken with a contract and specific research needs to be undertaken at the appropriate time.
Peer Mentoring – Critique
How to set up a group, how to run it, what to expect, how to control the format, time, contribution. A critique helps to establish what you are learning about your process and practice. It is a discursive undertaking which supports the artist to make the better art that they are seeking to make.
In summary, there is so much information on this site, I have only tentatively scratched the surface. What is it has done though is alert me to the support, opportunities, facilities and wealth of information that is available. I have subscribed to their newsletter for both the latest information and also as a reminder to regularly visit the site to expand my knowledge base.
Comprehensive details of all the current and up and coming exhibitions by location. Invaluable. Again I have subscribed.
