You have to look at different galleries to find out what suits your artwork and I would rather make art. There are a lot of them in New York City and finding one is not a problem. Sitting down and showing your work is not that big of a deal, just make sure it's something one can hang. I'm against pinning work on the wall. It's OK if you're in art school critique or if your big name status requires it. Going straight to pinning stuff on a gallery wall seems a bit too overboard for a starter like myself.
