    Brandon Brown - How to Find Gallery Representation, Collectors and the Santa Fe Scene

    Brandon Brown - How to Find Gallery Representation, Collectors and the Santa Fe Scene

    Brandon Brown is an art dealer at LewAllen galleries in Santa Fe. We met last summer on Canyon Road and I thought he'd be a great podcast guest to share a gallerist's perspective.

    In this episode, we discuss the role of art galleries, working with artists and collectors, and answer listeners' questions, most notably, "How do I get to show my work in a gallery?"

    A few artists mentioned in the episode are David Jonason, Forrest Moses, and Jivan Lee.

    Moses and Lee both have shows up at LewAllen for the next several weeks.

Great podcast for artists, not just western artists!

I have happily stumbled upon this podcast thanks to IG and have listened to all of them so far. I really love the relaxed discussions with the artists and how George discusses the entire sphere of being an artists, both the talent side and the business side. After all, being an artist is a business. Looking forward to season 2!

Very, Very interesting in the continuum of detailed questions to bring out the sharing & insights from the artists.
The scope of interviewer’s comprehensive leads into the life, work, background, work hours, mediums, goals and tech inquiries and more, was most interesting to any type art lover or more.
Danika was a delightful sharer of her specific art career journey & her individual path thus far.
I really enjoyed the depth & various specific sharing the host guided so well from the artist.
I look forward to many more of this podcast.
