This article will walk you through what to say when contacting a gallery.
To contact a gallery or begin a transaction on Artsy, you need to have an Artsy user account and be logged in. View our help center article on How can I create an account on Artsy?
Galleries respond faster to personalized messages, so follow these steps to make sure your conversation doesn’t get lost in the mix.
- Introduce yourself. Galleries want to make sure their works find a good home, so share a bit about your collection or interest in the artist. Sharing this information might also help you score a special discount.
- Ask your questions upfront to move the conversation along. For example, ask about the condition or shipping price right away.
- Follow up if needed. If the gallery doesn’t respond within a few days, let our team know at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll follow up on your behalf.
