I brought collectors to this gallery and the person who showed us work was incredibly vapid, idiotic, really, with a Valley Girl way of speaking, lost what could have been a sale.

I can't speak to how they treat their artists directly but I can tell you how the treat collectors and how they talk about their artists to collectors.

Meg Malloy is the nicest person I've met in any of the Chelsea galleries. I'm a young collector (just turned 30) and I don't have deep pockets but she has always made time to meet with me upstairs, to discuss the artistic intent of pieces, and given me plenty of time to make decisions.

She and I have discussed pretty much every artist they represent and I was always amazed at how energetic she was wen talking about their development. You can tell that she really cares about the long-term future of artists. She is amazing!

My love of this gallery is why I'm on this website; I wanted to see if they were having trouble and if so I would buy something in a heartbeat.

Every gallery should operate as wonderfully as SJ.

they put on an award winning act. they have continuously laid off staff blaming the economy. (I'm not even going to go into details, ugly stuff...) But it's the way they do it, you know in that passive aggressive sneaky snaky manner synonymous with the Chelsea style of business. (cold fake smiles) They may have good artists (some are just ignored and have eventually left) but they are creating a public relations reputation no business ever wants. (listen up mr. and mrs. collectors) As soon as the economy went south, like many other dealers, they put on their nice act out of desperation, opening up the showroom, pulling out pieces and explaining "artistic intent"(!!!) Open your eyes ears and minds, things are not what they appear. Once the market heats up again, they'll just ignore you and say "there are no pieces available" and the desirable goods will remain in the hands of the precious few whom they truly serve. you want a good deal you'll really feel good about??? go directly to the artists.
