You’re minding your own business at your show when an artist you don’t know comes up and asks you if you want to do a trade: his artwork for yours.
You don’t know anything about this artist’s work.
How do you respond?
How do you handle requests for trades in these situations:
- You don’t know the artist? (Can you subtly ask to see the work first? And then what?)
- You know the artist and don’t like the work?
- You know the artist and love the work?
- You’ve done trades in the past, but don’t feel that they’ve served you?
