How to Start and Run a Commercial Art Gallery also includes sample forms, helpful tips from veteran collectors, a large section on art fairs, and a directory of art dealers associations.

Book News Annotation:

Winkleman, a Chelsea art gallery owner and director, notes that finding space for a commercial art gallery and putting art on its walls is easy. Staying in business, he adds, is not. The author offers generic but practical advice for opening a gallery — and staying in business. The author discusses a number of issues, including: program definition and branding issues, business models and customary practices, primary and secondary markets, location and build-out issues, staffing and management, finding professional assistance, where to find and how to keep collectors, and more.

About the Author

Edward Winkleman began his career in the art world with a series of guerilla-style exhibitions organized in New York and London under the name 'hit and run'. In 2001 he co-founded Plus Ultra Gallery in the Williamsburg district of Brooklyn, New York. He was a founding member and the first president of the Williamsburg Gallery Association and an early member of the New Art Dealers Alliance. Moving into Manhattan's gallery district in Chelsea in 2006, he changed the name of the gallery to Winkleman Gallery. The gallery's exhibitions have been reviewed in the New York Times, Artforum, Art in America, Flash Art, the New Yorker, TimeOut New York, and Art on Paper, among others. Winkleman has participated in art fairs such as ARCO, Art Chicago, Pulse, Year 06, Aqua, and NADA. He is the author of an eponymous blog about the art world and politics and a contributing editor to the international blog Art World Salon. He lives in New York City.
