hi i am an artist in new york city. first of all, it is easier to get galleries interested in showing/selling your work if you've had a few shows of your work in your own country or internationally and can produce for them a slide portfolio of your work along with an artists statement. you might be able to find more contacts through www.galleryguide.org - which is a booklet/magazine published in nyc that lists all the galleries, shows, addresses, and other info relating to the art community here. it's a difficult world to break into here but with some persistance and patience your efforts will prove fruitful. Good Luck!! ;-)
