How to be part of the previews sent to collectors?
The collector @raph_is answers your questions and sheds light on the art market.
I don't have a magical solution, but I can give you some tips to help you.
First, position yourself in advance. If you like an artist, you absolutely have to be several steps ahead to know where he will exhibit and contact the galleries to express your interest.
Once this contact work is done, you can maximize your chances by becoming a gallery customer. Pay attention to the gallery program and ask for their catalogs. You will surely find something that will interest you and that will allow you to become a customer. Being a gallery client gives privileges like receiving a preview. If the gallery is located in your city, give priority to physical visits! It’s harder to refuse something to a real person rather than an email address.
