Rumour mill IV

The word is that the City Gallery in Wellington has agreed to reduce its dealer’s cut on artists’ multiple sales associated with Prospect. The cut will go from 40 percent to 33 1/3 percent. Better for the artists although it undercuts most commercial dealers who charge 40 percent. We will ask around other public art institutions and find out if this move into commercial art dealing is catching on.
