Ask the Art Professor: How do you gain confidence in your artwork?

  (via claralieu.wordpress.com)


 "I've found in my experience that confidence is one of those attributes that comes and goes for many artists. My confidence can swing back and forth quite dramatically, and I never quite know when I sit down to work how I'll be feeling. " (Clara Lieu)

Discuss: Art reviews and art prices

  (via faso.com)


 "An art critic I know recently mentioned that he upset an artist. Long story short, he mentioned -- in an exhibit review that was published -- that he felt the exhibited work was too expensive. The artist complained about the review and stressed that he felt it was unprofessional for the critic to rant about pricing structure. What do you think? Should pricing be considered within the context of an exhibit review? " (Brian Sherwin)

Art from Solitude

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "Two words in the English language describe what it means to be alone. Solitude results from a willful act of self-reliance, while loneliness stems from being involuntarily deprived of company. For most artists, though, the boundaries between these states of being are less sharply defined." (Laura C. Mallonee)

Exploring the 'us vs. them' mentality of the art world

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "There is enough room in the art world for all of us! There is room for the representational painter AND the abstract painter. There is room for the bronze sculptor AND the wood sculptor. Differences in style and medium can be discussed without the conversation devolving into a that is not art' tug of war. " (Brian Sherwin)

Painting the Desert: Urban Artists in the Navajo Nation

  (via www.huffingtonpost.com)


 "It's an unusual pairing: Street artists who are accustomed to the grit and grime of deteriorating neighborhoods in the city translating their skills to the desert where the environment is outstandingly more natural than built. In the third year of his experiment inviting artists to paint and wheat-paste in the Navajo Nation, organizer Chip Thomas, whose own street persona is Jetsonorama, appears to have hit a community service vein.

Market Participant's Welfare

  (via www.edwardwinkleman.com)


 "Efficiency is a fine goal in any market, but when it takes on more importance than the support network or the actual reason the art market exists, it's time to show its advocates the door. It's not your run-of-the-mill market, by design. Stop trying to make it one." (Edward Winkleman)

Study Confirms What We Already Know About the Importance of Artists' Authenticity

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "As for artist branding, it's no surprise that it matters, but it also seems like a given, at least when dealing with the question of authenticity. Even Damien Hirst, whose brand involves being a bad boy and attempting to shock and piss people off, doesn't actively call himself a sellout. If we're going to understand the effects of an artist's image on the sale of his artwork, we're going to need more nuanced categories and more refined questions." (Jillian Steinhauer )

What Every Artist Should Expect From Their Gallery

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "Expect the gallery to advertise and promote YOU! This is why you pay them a 50% commission for selling your work. It is your job to provide the artwork for the gallery to sell, but it is their job to promote, market, advertise and sell the art you give them. " (Dan Graziano )

The prospect of buying expensive equipment can be prohibitive but the great thing about linocut printing is you don't need a printing press - you really can do it at home." (Artists & Illustrators )

Every Painting in the Show Had a Red Dot!

  (via faso.com)


 "It sounds mercenary when we point this out because, for some reason, artists are the only ones who are not supposed to worry about making money, but if we are serious about art, and making a living, or even some amount of living, with it, then we need to look at the many promises we are made for opportunities, and question whether those opportunities are actually worth participating in." (Carolyn Henderson)
