    • Muffy, I think DOB tells gallerists much about where the artist is at in their career + where they can place the artwork or how the art fits in the art world scheme of things. If you have misgivings, I say go ahead and submit with just your month and date but not year and see what happens, or send in some variation on your DOB.
      I agree that it is very personal info and if you don’t feel comfortable until you get to know the gallerist that it is ok to fudge on you personal stats.(I hope he doesn’t read this) :+)
