The Power of Tiny Paintings

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "Ray's success is notable not only because of her youth but also because of the stylistic caution of her work, which consists almost entirely of tiny landscapes, city scenes, and interiors painted in a fairly traditional style. Her brushwork and surfaces suggest a modest, straightforward efficiency, and she rarely strays from a certain strategy for light: natural dramas of illumination, with glimpses of scenes framed by windows and doorways." (John Goodrich )

(NB Whether professional or amateur you will always need to get permission to use someone else's photographs)." (Louise Charles-Saarikoski )

Tax Tips for Artists

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "T.S. Eliot's claim that April is the cruelest month feels particularly true during tax season. Assuming you're an artist in the United States who makes at least $10,000 a year, you may be scrambling to file your return before tomorrow's deadline. And whether you're making the big bucks like Jeff Koons or wallowing in obscurity la Van Gogh during his lifetime, it can be a headache-inducing process. Next year, save yourself the trouble and follow these tips:" ( Laura C. Mallonee )

Do You Use Pinterest to Sell Your Art?

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "Pinterest has become an art marketing staple for many business-minded artists. It is not hard to find artists praising the marketing potential of Pinterest on art blogs and forums. In my opinion, the promotional value of Pinterest is important. It is a powerful promotional tool. I don't think anyone will deny that. However, the promotion of art -- no matter how visible -- does not always mean that work ends up sold. I'm interested in knowing if anyone has actually sold art after establishing a connection on Pinterest." (Brian Sherwin)

Are Mid-Size Galleries Disappearing, And Who's To Blame?

  (via news.artnet.com)


 "It'll be a problem if there's no financial motivation to maintain the gallery system, Winkleman says. Very specifically if the mega-galleries continuously approach the bestselling artists from the mid-level or emerging galleries so that those galleries never realize the return on their investments, then I think the nurturing system that we have is in jeopardy. I know that we're going to see a lot of galleries with some financing and some talented people behind them doing the math and saying this isn't sustainable to continue doing this. He added I think the system is at risk." (Anthony Haden)

Vanity Galleries: A cruel history

  (via faso.com)


 "The early vanity galleries often targeted females. The 'glass ceiling' of the art world was still fairly rock solid in the 1970s. Women were an easy 'mark' for the vanity gallery model because exhibit opportunities were few and far between. Furthermore, the US gallery scene was almost entirely dominated by males during that time. Vanity gallery owners realized the situation faced by women -- and strived to profit from it." (Brian Sherwin)

Let's Have an Ar(t)gument: Does 'Original Art' truly exist?

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "The artist makes conscious and subconscious choices. These choices are 'rooted' in what he or she knows... what he or she has seen -- influences from A to Z. With that in mind, I think most of you will agree that we humans are natural borrowers. Said 'borrowing' is enforced by our intellect and how we put our thoughts to work. A civilization 'borrows' from past civilizations... the painter working in his or her studio today has certainly heard of Picasso." (Brian Sherwin)
