100 days 100 galleries; Day 19: Eckert Fine Art, Kent, CT

Eckert Fine Art specializes in Post-War and Contemporary art. It was founded in 1996, with previous locations in Naples, FL, Bonita Springs, FL, Millerton, NY, Shekomeko, NY, and now the Kent Barns art district in Kent, Connecticut.

Carlos Fentanes (CF): Hello,
I have a blog about art galleries and their relationship with their artists. I want to feature your gallery in my blog.
How do you describe your gallery as an introduction?

Eckert Fine Art (EFA): nothing

Should I start with something more friendly, less scary? Did I said something wrong? It seems that the old trick of “I’m a blogger” is not working anymore. Anyways I don’t like the term, for me it’s scary; OK, not precisely but pretty close.

Up to now just 4 galleries had answer my DMs, 4 out of 19 around 20% that I think is not so bad (can be worst) but I haven’t get any results from their answers, once they answer I don’t know what to ask for even I don’t know if I have to ask for something.

When I started this, my goal was to have a representation for a gallery anywhere in the world but how can I found a representation if I cannot get a communication channel at all? Should I quit? NO!

I’m going to catch some experience, I’m going to improve my compositions by checking what’s outside and I’m going to make new friends in the road. I don’t know exactly where this going to lead me but for sure it’s better than where I’m right now, at least that’s what I want to think. Maybe I shouldn’t think at all just act and don’t expect anything from anybody.

In the site of the gallery there’s no instructions about submissions so don’t bother to try.

Maybe tomorrow it’ll be different.
