how do you get your art into a gallery?


I don't know how to get my work into a gallery again, or if I should even want to. The Big Top Gallery, formerly on Clio Street, didn't officially represent me but they sold a lot of work for me (I'd say about ten paintings). I'd like to be showing my work in a gallery again but I don't know if it's good enough or if it's what they want.

Do artists just wait to be asked to show their work in a gallery? Or does the artist have to approach the gallery with, I dunno, a bunch of jpegs and hope? If you've done it, or you are a gallery, leave a comment.
