How I got gallery representation: Tips and a gallery pitch email template you can use

I’ve started taking anonymously asked questions via NGL and posting responses on my Instagram highlights. Here’s a question I received that merited a longer response á la blog post. The question reads:


“Hey Sophia! Saw your work at the [Affordable] Art Fair and absolutely love them! I also do digital art and [am] just starting out. Do you have any advice or tips in terms of getting galleries to represent you or have your work exhibited? Also, what do you do if you get stuck sometimes with your art?”


I’ll be answering the former question below, but you can read my response to the latter question as well here.
