Here is an UPDATE from Boris Bally.
A previous series of posts about late or non-payment from galleries/stores included an account from Boris Bally about his experiences. He would like to add this addendum from the "pen of Boris Bally":
I was stunned today to discover a check (no note) in today's mail. I finally received payment from Luis at IMEC- in full! (there were no finance charges assessed, as I wasn't aware how long ago (since the 14 months or so- that I sent the work) the pieces actually sold (due to poor communication.) This is why I continue to dislike consignment with disorganized galleries- ugh! If Luis had paid me, or even communicated with me when I wrote my first note, I never would have thought to come forward with my story.
Regarding Robert Kaylor, R Grey Gallery in Boise, Idaho
Yes, they finally paid the amount due and later (actually) paid me yesterday (!!)... for the final interest balance.. that they questioned (!!)
So we are all squared away after months (of no communication). They didn't reply to tell me they were paying the balance off.. otherwise, I may not have used them as an example. Again, a small communication would have helped them. Go figure!
It is a good lesson that a little communication goes a LONG way! Anyway, I want to thank you, Harriete, and Joan, for helping raise your voices in solidarity, and to give mine more range. In the end, who knows why I eventually got paid...? I am just really happy to end on a good finish and be DONE 'neatly.' THANKS a million!
