    This place is a nightmare but you can learn a lot - NY Gallery

    Pros

    Had opportunities to meet other artists, learn about the industry and how to pack art for shipment. Good chance to get hands on experience in the industry if you can deal with the owner.

    Cons

    The owner is a terrible, mean and manipulative person. Tries to constantly put you down and make you feel stupid so that you don't feel important enough to ask for reasonable pay. He runs a few side hustle scams, both related to the gallery and his own personal businesses. Hosts open calls for artists that require an application fee, he doesn't even consider any of the artists and just collects the money and throws away their applications. Overall the man is a nightmare to work with, and he will do everything he can to make you feel lucky to be breathing the same air as him.
