Consignment Agreements and the Artist/Gallery Relationship

November 22, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

VLA is proud to present its popular series of free classes targeted to artists, students and practicing attorneys. The classes will be taught by current law school students.

This course is for artists interested in learning about how to work with a gallery to sell their work. What is a consignment agreement and what legal rights do artists have surrounding this type of agreement? What factors do galleries consider when deciding to consign with an artist? When and how should artists negotiate a consignment agreement to better serve their interests? Presenters will address all of these questions in an effort to help artists understand consignment agreements and artists’ rights under New York law.

Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, 1 East 53rd Street, New York, NY 10022
