Make the most of exhibitions

There is no one way to get an exhibition, and much of your success will depend on your reputation, patience, professionalism, existing network, serendipity and, of course, the quality of your work.

For more information on working with galleries, and what to expect from the relationship between galleries and artists, watch our ArtlawTV interview with Rene Gimpel from Gimpel Fils.
