FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Pressnews.biz (Press Release) Nov 21, 2014 -- In the pursuit of exhibition space many artists encounter frustration and despair. Some artists are taken advantage of by individuals who manipulate them for personal profit. No one wants to become a victim, so it is important to have an idea of what the gallery scene is really all about. The art gallery business is first of all a business, art is the product sold and the dealer’s goal is to make a profit. The dealer’s job is to manipulate the media, curators and collectors to achieve that goal. An artist’s life is the antithesis of this. The artist’s life is about self-expression, beauty, psychological exploration, the enhancement of the human experience. In the quest for exhibition and representation the artist will encounter many different types of galleries. Some of these art galleries in Dubai may greatly benefit the artist, some may provide little benefit and others may even be destructive.

The first type of art gallery in Dubai and by far the most desirable is the strictly commercial gallery. By commercial I mean a gallery that engages in sales as its primary means of income. In this type of gallery the artist is taken on and represented by a dealer. The dealer takes a commission on the sale of the artist's work. The commission rate is arbitrarily set by the gallery. Most of the top commission art galleries in Dubai select artists from within a closed circle of associates and friends. At this level the fine art business has a club-like mentality. A very small group of individuals, dealers, critics, curators and collectors control the business.

Of course before you pursue other types of art galleries in Dubai you should try to get into a commercial gallery. Even a lower level, not-so-famous commercial gallery is better than the others because you will not have to pay to exhibit there. Due to the exclusive nature of the commercial art galleries in Dubai, many other alternative type galleries have arisen. Alternative type galleries include non-for profit galleries, cooperative galleries, artist-owned galleries and privately owned rental galleries.

But with the first art gallery online in Dubai, things might change pretty soon. There might be cases when an art gallery in Dubai will tell the artist that selling his art online cheapens it. Nothing could be further from the truth. There has been an absolute explosion of online art sales in the last few years. It seems like every month there is another online gallery opening, and many of them sell original work that ranges well into the thousands of dollars. So, definitely a struggling artist can ease his life a bit with the first online art gallery in Dubai.

Here’s the deal. If an artist really wants to be in control of his art sales, if he really wants to control his life and his career and his time – he needs to take the time to make his online presence as good as possible. He should not let anyone – not galleries, friends, other artists, or a random internet stranger, tell him that he can’t sell his work with the first online art gallery in Dubai.

If you’re a struggling artist and you are trying your luck with the many art galleries in Dubai http://unique-gallery.com you should know that there is a new way to get your work out there. Try the first online art gallery in Dubai http://unique-gallery.com and get ready to make a profit from your art!
