How to Start & Run an Art Gallery : Understanding Art History for Starting an Art Gallery


Hi, this is Christina Varga from the Varga
Gallery in Woodstock, New York and today on behalf of Expert Village we’re going to
show you how to open and run your own art gallery. All right, the history of art and
how it plays a role in galleries. Now I’ll have to say, caveat here, because I know nothing
about the history of art, I really don’t except for like, from hieroglyphics and cave
paintings to, you know the people that didn’t make money while they were alive and painting
like Van Gogh and all the people that went crazy with him and then the people that are
living now, like Banksee who blink and get like a hundred thousand dollars. So that’s
the summary of the history of art for me, we are now in a time when multi-media, like
Internet access and emails and cell phones and things like that, j-pegs on a disc that
you mail instead of slides that you have, you know every digital camera is really cheap,
all this stuff. This is very useful in order for documenting things, getting your image
and your art and everything out there and reaching the public and if you can do that
and have a spot to have all this stuff which you would call a gallery. Then you’re in
business, then you’ve got your space, your location, your location and your location.
