I am after some advice please lovely people. I approached a localish gallery last year with some of my paintings and was delighted when they took 2 paintings and 2 prints on a sale or return basis. They sold one of the paintings within a couple of months, I had to email them to ask how they were doing, they never emailed me to say they had sold one. I have contacted them every few months to say hi and see how they are doing. Everytime I emailed I was told they would let me know when I had sold one.
I contacted them about a month ago to see whats happening and was told that my painting and prints were in storage. I asked if they had been in storage all Summer still not got an answer to that question.
The last couple of replys I have got have said that they haven’t had a chance to get to their storage but would let me know when they had them and I could collect them. It is a lovely, well known gallery in the area and I have no concern over whether my painting is being stored properly or not. My concern is over the delay in being able to collect them and the fact that I have to email them all the time. I first asked for my paintings back at the end of August.
Has anyone dealt with galleries before, does it normally take this long?
