Gallery Course Description and Testimonials from students in the classes;
In this course, you will learn how to crack the code of how artists find and secure gallery representation. For many struggling art-makers, this can feel like an impossible barrier to cross, as though it were only the select and special few whose work gets to be shown in public. After this course, you will see that there are a handful of practical steps to help you get your artwork into the gallery of your choosing. The curriculum covers everything from finding a gallery that fits your aesthetic to techniques for communicating with gallerists to getting your work into that first group show. In the end, you will learn just what needs to happen to make sure your work seen in the world. You will learn how to get past the gatekeepers of the art world!
By signing up for the course, not only will you receive a digital copy of Brainard Carey’s book Making It In The Art World but you will also get full access to this wide-ranging curriculum and its related video content, as well as the seven other courses above.
This is a self-paced eight-week course, so you can take it when you have time. You will have lifetime access to the material, as well as support and feedback from a teacher in a private online classroom.

"Excited to join the class and want to thank Brainard for being generous with resources. I applied to the Odessa Biennial that Brainard mentioned and got in! This will be my first international show and a homecoming to my native Ukraine. Much gratitude"
- Tatyana Ostapenko
"I have news to share and I hope this is an encouragement to all. I did the course work and first worked on fine tuning the website and bio. thanks to all that helped but this is really a shout out to Brainard's suggestions. THEY WORK. I am happy to share I just achieved my third gallery and each gallery is a step up in my career. Do what he says and it will work for you. THANK YOU Brainard for sharing your knowledge.
- Ct Cummins
"I took some of the things I learned in your class and applied them! I had a studio visit with the owner of a small gallery on the lower east side. She said that she was interested in working with me... Also, I had the visit today, she said she is booked until June (month long shows). We talked a little about designing a solo show, and that she would want to see what I had planned."
- Justin Cloud
"Your techniques and advice/support was very helpful. After a 2 day business trip to SF from LA and contacting 15 SF galleries and 4 curators for appointments I connected to the right one, and 2 weeks later she offered me a solo show for next month because her other artist needed more time and she had the slot open & knew I had the work. So again, thank you."
