Artist and gallery owner Jane Cowley of Cowley Fine Art in South Haven, Michigan speaks about the challenges of owning a resort gallery today, and what artists should know.
AS: You are an artist who bought an art gallery. What have you learned from owning it?
JC: The one thing I did learn was to trust my instincts concerning the business of the gallery. Running a gallery is very much like creating art. You start with a vision and as you progress, the vision changes and evolves. It requires creativity, talent and a willingness to be fluid. Iíve learned not to follow a rigid formula, but to listen and follow my inner voice.
