yes, we already have a shop value for art galleries that generally
sell the exposed works, but Tom was saying that we should distinguish
between museums that expose art but don't call themself an "art
gallery" and others that don't sell either but do only exhibitions and
call themself an "art gallery".

sometimes (say on rare occasions) also museums sell some of their
works to another museum, we shouldn't exclude this totally, but focus
on "generally" or something similar.
