#9 The Road Less Travelled with Joel Mesler

BY Charlotte Burns
executive editor of In Other Words

We're introducing a new feature for the ninth episode of "In Other Words",  a one-on-one interview with a person who has taken an unusual approach to making their way in the art world— someone who has taken the road less travelled.

Joining us this week, Joel Mesler tells us why he recently left Manhattan's Lower East Side to open an art gallery in East Hampton, Rental Gallery. Joel, who is an artist as well as a dealer, talks to us about what it takes to survive in the industry.

"In Other Words" is a presentation of AAP and Sotheby's, produced by
