Artists Claim Los Angeles’s CB1 Gallery Owners Failed to Pay After Art Sold

April 29, 2018

Nine artists have signed an open letter claiming that the founders and owners of Los Angeles’s CB1 Gallery, Clyde Beswick and Jason Chang, “have consistently failed to honor the gallery’s contracts” with some artists they have worked with, written checks that have bounced, and sold art without notifying the artists who made it.

“We are working hard to resolve any and all issues with the artists whose work we have shown,” Beswick, who runs the gallery with Jason Chang, said in an email to ARTnews, when asked about the letter. “We truly love the art we have exhibited and respect the artists.”

The letter from the artists reads, in part, “Many of us have ended our relationship with the gallery as a result of Mr. Beswick’s and Mr. Chang’s dishonesty and failure to live up to even the most basic requests such as small payments paid out over long periods of time."

One of the signers, Brett Reichman, a San Francisco–based painter, said he has been pursuing payment for work purchased out of his solo show at CB1 more than two years ago. “My 2015 exhibition had robust sales and garnered many reviews,” he told ARTnews. “My work brought nothing but positive contributions and attention to the CB1 Gallery. It has been crushing to go from what was an unqualified success to this low point.”
