4. Galleries that do nothing to promote or support the artists that they work with.

5. When a gallery asks you to lower your prices to sell more work. Don’t do that.

6. Galleries that don’t share sales of your work with you in a timely fashion, and if you have to nag them to get updates and payments.

7. Galleries that want to want to micromanage your career, especially how and what you create. There is a big difference between a gallery being helpful or being a dictator.
