Review:

"A fine example of a truly practical guide to consignment for the artist or craftsperson. ... The Artist-Gallery Partnership is a practical nuts and bolts guide to drafting your own consignment contract and avoiding the pitfalls of an oral agreement based on a handshake and some vague promises or assumptions." -- The Working Arts

"Aimed at clearing away the misgivings that many artists and gallery owners feel about consignment arrangements. Its focus is a model consignment contract with a point-by-point analysis encompassing everything from pricing and commissions, to a gallery's responsibility for promoting consigned work." -- American Crafts

"Emphasizes the need for artists and galleries to work within a written contractual framework. . . . The Guide deals with the legal and technical complexities of this business relationship in straightforward, understandable terms. . . . The book is ideal for artists wishing to enter the legal zone of the art business with some background." -- Sculptors International

"Handles a complex subject in an easy-to-read style and includes a model contract and analysis of it." -- Arts Management

"[The authors] have compiled almost every word there is to be said on the legal aspects of consignment selling. The book is aimed at clearing away the misgivings and misconceptions which abound on both sides of the fence." -- The Crafts Report
