How To Beat The Mark-Down Scam
If you find a piece of art you love in one of these
galleries and it's an obvious victim of the markdown scam,
have the courage to take down the information on the piece,
go back home, and look this artist and this piece up on the
internet. See what other galleries are selling it for. I can
guarantee after only 20 minutes of research and
calling four or five galleries you will have established
the fair market value for this piece. And you can be
well assured even with the "50% discount" you will
find the true value to be even less. Being an educated
consumer means you will be able to find your artwork at its
true value and acquire it while having saved your self money
and mockery.
