A Cautionary Tale

Some time ago I had the pleasure of announcing that I had been invited to take part in a Halloween-themed art show in a gallery in Australia. I sent several pieces at my expense, but never received payment for the one that sold. Now I discover that I will never receive payment, nor will the remaining pieces be returned to me. All attempts to communicate with the gallery owner have been met with silence. Many other artists have been similarly mistreated, as the article below details. The only solace I can find is that some artists lost more pieces than I did.      http://fitzroyalty.net/2016/05/24/auguste-clown-gallery-johnston-st-accused-stealing-artists/
