I received the same invite but rather than just disregarding outright I'm open to the idea it might be for real so have emailed other galleries in NY to ask if 1. it's a real gallery and 2. whether the process seems credible. I'll make my decision based on what I discover. With no intent to offend anyone here, it's fair to say that noone in this forum has had any involvement with this gallery or their process beyond the assumption it's a scam and making the decision not to investigate any further ... so how coils anyone here possibly know if it's legit ... I for one want to know more before I make any decision about anything. So I'll ask a few questions and see what's what.
