Artists in Action: Working with Galleries

Do you have questions about galleries, agents, consultants, and others who can sell your work? Bob and Kate Burridge will share their experience of over 25 years working within the gallery system. The gallery-artist relationship can be complicated yet highly satisfying and successful, particularly when you can get your questions answered prior to signing a contract. The Burridges will be your mentors in this 90-minute session.

The session will include:

  • Players who sell your work
  • Artist-Gallery Relationship 
  • Do you need an Agent?
  • Contracts and Agreements
  • What to Expect
  • Red Flags


Robert Burridge was an Industrial Designer who, after 25 years in the business, left the corporate world to be a full time, contemporary painter. Today he is a juror for international exhibits, college and national workshop instructor, and is the Honorary President of the International Society of Acrylic Painters. His honors include the Franklin Mint Award and the prestigious Philadelphia Watercolor Society’s Crest Medal for Achievement in the Arts. Bob’s work is featured in many books and magazines, on cruise ships, and his paintings are sold in galleries worldwide. 

Kate Burridge has over 20 years experience in international marketing, promotion, and professional presentations. Besides managing her husband Bob Burridge’s art career, Kate is also an author, lecturer and consultant to a long list of art associations and agencies in the United States. Kate developed “Art Marketing: The Business of Selling Your Art,” an eight-week course that she and Robert Burridge taught at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, California. She also authored “News Releases: Getting the Media to Work for You,” published by Art Calendar Magazine.
