Anyone have feedback about New Art Center on 8th Ave.? Serge Gregorian?

Serge Gregorian is a slime ball who charges mostly out of town artists a lot of money for a "solo show" in NYC. For his fees he guarantees a write up in one of various art publications, but I'm sure you've noticed that the New Art Center doesn't have any press.

Does anybody agree/disagree on the comment made of the new art center ??

Hello blog holder.
Is this blog still alive or am I wasting my time ??

Buck Naked said...

Yes to both.

New Art Center has many artists from NYC. 3 out of 5 currently shown artists are from the city. No problems with Serge. They do get press. Here is a link No fee for space but artists pay for ads, etc. Decent shows. It is kind of a project space / promo service.

Btw, New Art Center has good collectors. They have just sold a $30,000 painting to Peter Marino. So, what is wrong with artists paying for a catalog if it helps to sell?

Would be like to see more art advisors listed. Especially some of the so-called *up-and-comers.* Who do dealers respect and why? The relationship between dealers and advisors is interesting and as far as I can tell there isn't an open (or anonymous) forum for this. Just a lot of paid PR which is, well, just that, paid PR.

Adam Lindemann, collector and owner of Venus Over Manhattan gallery, is a top-notch scumball. He bought my art piece, and then refused to pay the full price because of a tiny scratch in the frame, which wasn't there when I gave it to him. When I asked for the piece back, he wouldn't give it back to me for months, nor return my calls. I got it back a year later. Gross.

I just saw the comment about Adam Lindemann. I am an artist and had a similar experience. He was so charming at first, and then totally turned on me when I asked him to pay for full shipping. The sale didn't go through, and he was shockingly nasty about the whole thing.
