How to Approach a Gallery for Representation

At FinerWorks we have full-time on staff two people who are also actively involved in the art gallery business at night and on weekends. Zane Thomas is a successful screen printer and founder of both Black Moon Prints and Black Moon Gallery, based in San Antonio.
