Random Galleries Requesting Portfolio Interviews

I’m starting to get a flood of unsolicited emails from galleries who are so interested in my work, they want to offer me the privilege of paying them for a portfolio interview for the privilege of being allowed to pay them┬áto show my work in some gallery I’ve never heard of.

Um…no.

If you’re that interest in my work, maybe you should check my facebook, google+, tumblr, twitter, YouTube, blog, or website, and see that I already have a show coming up in a gallery that I have┬áheard of; one that doesn’t charge for portfolio interviews, and doesn’t charge me to show my work.

*facepalm*

At least the emails from crappy vanity galleries in New York have slowed down…
