In this episode of The Living Artist, Preston sits down with Alex Farkas, Co-Founder and Gallery Director of UGallery. Alex co-founded UGallery in 2006 with the goal of helping emerging artists connect with patrons. As one of the first ever online art galleries, UGallery significantly improved the opportunities available for artists. The gallery has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue, and Art in America. Alex shares with Preston the importance of UGallery being a family company, his love of art, changes in the online art world, a history of art in his family, the importance of focusing on what matters as a company, custom made boxes, curating a small and deliberate roster of artists, and much more. Enjoy this conversation with Alex Farkas!
