Pay to Play

Sometimes fellow artists ask me; 'I got invited to join in an art exhibition but the gallery wants me to pay a fee upfront. Is that common?' Usually, it is not. Recently I too got an invite from such a gallery. The general and exchangeable tone of voice of the request and the long list of exhibiting artists of variable quality and style made some warning bells go off in my head. He're some wise words from the Art Business website about the subject;
