Public Galleries

The term is used for both public galleries, which are non-profit or publicly owned museums that display selected collections of art. On the other hand, private galleries refers to the commercial enterprises for the sale of art. However, both types of gallery may host traveling exhibits or temporary exhibitions including art borrowed from elsewhere.

In broad terms, in North American usage, the word gallery alone often implies a private gallery, while a public gallery is more likely to be described as an art museum. In British and Commonwealth usage, the word gallery alone implies a public gallery, while a private or commercial gallery will be distinguished using those terms, and the word museum alone is generally understood to refer to institutions holding collections of historic, archaeological or scientific artefacts, rather than of fine art.

Contemporary Art Gallery

The term contemporary art gallery refers usually to a privately owned for-profit commercial gallery. These galleries are often found clustered together in large urban centers. Smaller cities are usually home to at least one gallery, but they may also be found in towns or villages, and remote areas where artists congregate, e.g. the Taos art colony and St Ives, Cornwall.

Contemporary art galleries are usually open to the general public without charge; however, some are semi-private. They usually profit by taking a portion of art sales; from 25% to 50% is typical. There are also many non-profit or collective galleries. Some galleries in cities like Tokyo charge the artists a flat rate per day, though this is considered distasteful in some international art markets. Galleries often hang solo shows. Curators often create group shows that say something about a certain theme, trend in art, or group of associated artists. Galleries sometimes choose to represent artists exclusively, giving them the opportunity to show regularly.

Artist Samuel Gillis

Today we’d like to introduce you to Samuel J. Gillis.

Samuel was born with a crayon in his hand and has been making art ever since. His early exposure included cartooning which developed into an avid interest in developing a formal education in fine art. In his 20s Sam did a stint at Columbia College Chicago where he met noted fine art painter Eddwin Meyers who offered him the opportunity to be classically trained in an environment with greater creative freedom at The Atelier Alternative. Always one to follow his own path, Sam left the traditional setting of a university for the Atelier where he honed his style and craft over the course of a twelve year residency.

During this time, he also managed an astute gallery in Chicago and established himself as a serious artist in the Chicago art scene. Gillis developed into a prolific artist whose work has been featured in museums and exhibitions including the National Museum of Mexican Art, John G. Shedd Aquarium and River East Art Center. As well, Sam’s paintings are part of international collections in Spain, Italy, New York, Guatemala, Russia and San Francisco. He has also been featured in television, movies and publications nationwide.

Sam is a passionate private collector and supporter of global initiatives to create more art and a better world. As such, he is a frequent donor to organizations including Y-Me Breast Cancer Awareness, Thresholds, Tree House Foundation, Chicago Food Pantry, East Lakeview Neighbors, Children’s Memorial Hospital and the Make A Wish Foundation. Gillis founded Gallery Swarm in Chicago, Illinois and made it a staple of the Chicago art community. When he moved to Los Angeles, he rebooted the gallery as Wrinkle Art with his wife Glendy X. Mattalia. He now lives and paints by the seaside in Ventura County…

A Series of Unfortunate Art Events (totally caused by our own idiocy)

Once upon a time (in 2010), in a city far far away (in the middle of the country) [Chicago], my wife and I ran the little art gallery that could (Gallery Swarm).

We produced a bunch of cool art events (whoohoo) and became a staple in our art community (cue the perfect montage).
