Its been an interesting transition from collector to dealer in the art world. Everyone has an opinion. Two people have posited unique definitions of what an art dealer is.
While Quality Pictures' artist Elizabeth Huey was in Portland organizing Picture Ping Pong, she told me that to her art dealers are "just artists who work on a big scale"
And a dear friend of mine in Atlanta put it this way:
"You are now the whore."
Based on my two months experience, I think its a little of both!
