In the last two weeks I've submitted my work for consideration to 12 galleries. I received one reply back today from a location in Southern California. Short, but sweet:

"Thanks Suzanne but I do not see it as a fit for my gallery."

It's hard to gauge what exactly may be a good fit from such a far distance, I'm just happy for the response as sometimes you never hear back on digital submissions.

Tell me about it! You would think that a gallery could at least have a form email ready to send to artists who submit that they don't want. Just to give a response at least. I emailed over a month ago to get submission guidelines, not even the actually submission, to 5 galleries, two of whom had sent a request through my guild for artists to submit their work. One sent me an email 2 weeks ago saying they weren't looking for jewelry artists at this time, and I received another last week saying that when they aare ready for jewelry artists they will consider my work. That second one was from one of the galleries that requested submissions from my goldsmiths guild. The other three didn't respond at all.
