Navigating Gallery Representation and Consignment Agreements

with Louis E. Greenwald, Esq.


Are you an artist, dealer, or gallery owner? Do you want to better understand the legal relationships between artists and galleries? Join CLA and attorney Louis E. Greenwald in a discussion of California laws governing consignment sales. The program will cover common contract clauses, while focusing on ways to avoid pitfalls and common mistakes. It will also include strategies for negotiating the best possible deal. You will learn how to review and analyze artist/gallery consignment agreements, how to make sense of any legalese, and how to make sure you do not sign something you will later regret.


Louis E. Greenwald, Esq., a partner at the law firm Choi & Greenwald, practices employment law, contract law, and art law. Mr. Greenwald represents artists, art galleries, art foundries, art appraisers, and museums. Mr. Greenwald has extensive experience drafting and reviewing consignment agreements.

These workshops are made possible, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission; and The City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs. Additional support provided by the California Arts Council.
