What is the role of the brick-and-mortar art gallery in today's art scene? Are they for artists, for communities, for collectors, or for nobody at all? With the growth of online galleries and sales, and the increase in the number of artists who have strong web presences of their own, combined with the promotional capabilities of social media and Internet "galleries," how has the role of the gallery changed--or has it? What's the ideal "gallery model" for 2010 and beyond? I have my opinions (of course!) and I hope to be sharing yours as well.


Featuring guest commentary from artists, art patrons, gallerists, and adventurous souls exploring alternative models.
