Re: Someone who didn't buy your art work at the shower but contact you later to buy it
I may have written this before. A fellow artist had an exhibition at a gallery. A week later, a buyer contacted him. He wanted to buy at a reduced price. The artist gave him a reduced price as he was buying several -- I'm not saying he deserved it. The buyer was sleazy in everybody's view. I should add -- sleazy because he wanted to undercut the dealer and he said it. Many times a friend will offer to buy for full price AFTER the show because they think I will get all the money. I have to tell them that I can't do that. In this case, the artist took the money and the dealer was given a commission that he suggested. We are not talking about a high end artworld connected gallery here. I didn't like the buyer nor his motives. HOWEVER, that being said, I often sell after the show when it's a show that I have put on myself. As IanBertram says the show has to let the audience know you're creating art work.
