"How do galleries see their role in a world that is rapidly moving from the “brick and mortar” storefront to the glowing computer monitor?
What unique services can and do galleries provide?
How will artists sell their work comfortably in both worlds?
These issues will be examined from the perspectives of the gallery, the artist, and the collector.
Be sure to take part in this dynamic and frank discussion.
