Castelli Art Space is a different sort of gallery. There, Fred Goldstein and Iglesias believe that they have a space that serves artists in Los Angeles to present their artwork outside of the normal gallery ethos. Whereas traditional galleries will take a 50/50 or 60/40 commission, artists retain 100% of their sales when they rent the art space. If the artist works with a curator, the commission is usually an 80/20 or 70/30 split, which enables the artists to earn more, so they can continue to create without restrictions.  http://castelliartspace.com
