Setting up a gallery still relevant in 2022?

Considering the digital world these days, do photographers still aspire getting their work in a physical gallery?

That's a good question. I pretty sure well-known photographers still have showings which generate quite a bit interest. A modern example would be Steve McCurry.

The last time I had an exhibition was in the end of film days, 1999. 
What I learned was you do not have exhibits for profit unless the world art collectors are aware of you.
All photographers I know do it for the marketing they get from it. 

A friend once sold out his exhibition and thought it was the way.
But it was one buyer who thought it would look great in her new restaurant. 
His next exhibit was without profits again.

I guess it depends on what you want from your photography.  Me?  Meh.

I've done submissions to juried exhibits. Not much during the pandemic. I think many galleries were struggling to stay in business, and not many art shows etc. were going on.

Usually you submit digitally, and if accepted then you print and frame and ship the photograph. There's one gallery where I've had photos in exhibits and they've done shows where they did prints themselves from what you provided digitally; unless it sells (it didn't!) they ship it to you. If nothing else I ended up with a beautiful professional quality print for myself.

I don't know of anyone owning their own gallery. Sometimes a gallery may show a particular artist's work in a solo exhibit. Or an exhibit may feature a particular artist or photographer as part of the exhibit. Or an art show or gallery may accept and include photographs.

Seems like photographers need to be well known regionally at least for their prints to sell for much.

Physical gallery?  Nope, digital all the way.  Reach more peeps!

Perhaps when I'm older, right now I have my hands full with my portrait clients.
