    Galleries that maintain a permanent collection

    Are there any photo galleries that maintain a permanent collection as opposed to galleries that just sell prints and do not collect?

    Yes there are both. The Paul Paletti Gallery in Louisville for example has an extraordinary permanent collection, but of course as a sole proprietorship it is also his private collection. Galleries (or owners) that collect of course get a huge discount of the normal price (the percentage the gallery takes).

    Why do you ask?
    Thanks,

    Many galleries are owned by dealers who have very large inventories of photographs that they have purchased. They are in a sense permanent collections, until the right buyer comes by with big money. Some also have inventories on consignment, not really permanent, but a way to see important work that is not squirreled away in a museum archive.

    Susan Spiritus (susanspiritusgallery.com) has a spectacular collection. Since she own's the gallery, and her collection.. i'd assume this qualifies

    I was thinking of seeing if they had an interest in accepting some of my work as a donation if they do not have plans to put it up for sale but keep it in their collection.

    You are not thinking like a gallery owner.
