Screen capture AFC
Art Gotham made Craigslist headlines this weekend for poor management of their accounts payable. As the above screen capture documents, at least one artist is angry over an outstanding bill. I haven’t spoken to the gallery about this latest Craigslist smear, so at this point you can apply the same grain of salt you do whenever you read any blog “reporting”, though I did talk to them last year about related artist complaints. The tip originally came from an anonymous source; upset over what they characterized as hidden fees ($150-$250 dollars to exhibit in addition to the standard 50 percent commission.) I didn’t get very far with the gallery owner, but assuming this artist paid these fees to exhibit, they will have now lost a considerable amount of money.
