Getting the Word Out in a Post-Critic World

  (via www.huffingtonpost.com)


 "Newspapers that used to have full-time art critics no longer do, and the jobs of writers who were hired originally as critics have morphed into general assignment feature writers who may get to do an occasional review. However, the lack of art reviews hasn't had an adverse effect on museum and gallery attendance, nor on sales. As one gallery claimed, "younger customers aren't newspaper readers anyway." " (Daniel Grant)

Promoting Your Art in Alternate Places

  (via theabundantartist.com)


 "Doctors' offices. Lawyers' offices. Coffee shops. Restaurants. These are all great places to promote your art. Why? Because only a small fraction of the populace goes to art galleries. In addition, if you place your art right, you'll get in front of the right people." (Cory Huff)

Curating for the Cure: Medical Facilities Embrace the Power of Art

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "As galleries and museums are for practical reasons limited to exhibitions of modest duration, alternatives are perennially sought by artists, often leading them to less than suitable locations like restaurants, offices, and corporate lobbies. Fortunately, some exhibition alternatives can actually enhance the art chosen for installation while also serving the original purpose of the space." (Peter Malone)

Out-of-the-Box Art Marketing Ideas

  (via www.artsyshark.com)


 "Knowing your audience is key in being able to create a marketing message that resonates with them. If you are in a niche market for example, you can attend events that fit the niche. For example, if you are an equine artist, horse shows, rodeos and other horse-related events could be a perfect place for you to stand out with that crowd. You won't have as much competition, which helps you become a big fish in a small pond." (Carolyn Edlund)

 "Have any of you collaborated with a fellow artist? What was that experience like? How did you market the work -- did you both help to promote it? Would you do it again?" (Brian Sherwin)

Selling Paintings: Do Large or Small Paintings Sell More?

  (via painting.about.com)


 "Some people advised me to paint smaller paintings because they are more affordable and people don't have much room in their houses to hang them. However, some subjects don't lend themselves to a small format. So, I have to keep the larger paintings until I find the right buyer and this creates both a storage and selling problem. " (Marion Boddy-Evans)

Painting with Toxic Sludge

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "Underground mining in Ohio dates back to the early 19th century, and thanks to acid runoff, the hundreds of now abandoned coal mines are a poison to the state's waterways and ecology. To experiment with an alternative method for remediation, a scientist and an artist are collaborating on turning this toxic sludge into pigments." (Allison Meier)

Artist Website Tips: Think about time when listing art exhibits

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "I realize that the value of listing exhibits on an artist website can be debated. I'm certain that some readers will argue that listing art exhibit history has had little to no impact on their art career. However, I know others will insist that listing a consistent exhibit history has opened doors for them. Consider all of this food for thought." (Brian Sherwin)

Let's Have an Ar(t)gument: Art as Investment

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "I imagine the majority of art buyers purchase what they like -- no matter who signed it... no matter where the work has been exhibited. They don't care about the opinion of a notable gallerist. They don't care about auctions results. They don't care if the artist has been reviewed by an influential art critic. Art as investment is the last thing on their mind! I'd say the average art buyer falls into this group." (Brian Sherwin)

How to Balance Art & Life

  (via www.artsyshark.com)


 "Some artists do their best work when they are out of the house. Having rented studio space reinforces the business nature of your art, and it takes you away from distractions that can pull you off-track. That studio space may end up being your creative haven. Turn off the phone, and give yourself the time to make art." (Carolyn Edlund)

Why Don't Artists Like the Current Art Market?

  (via www.slate.com)


 "Many artists feel scorned and rejected. They want to paint what they want to paint, dammit, and they want galleries to represent those paintings and people to love them and buy them. Or rather, they often feel certain that if only galleries would represent those artworks, people would love them and buy them. I wish it were that simple." (Michelle Gaugy)

How to Use Your Twitter Friends as Character References

 "I have started collecting screenshots' of flattering tweets that are relevant to my art, blogging and social media careers. I can then use the screenshots of these special tweets when promoting myself, my social media seminars, art workshops, writing proposals for magazines, books and blogs, and other employment. These important digital character references add to my online and offline credibility in real life'." (Lori McNee)

Discuss: Remember to keep information on your website current!

  (via faso.com)


 "Nothing is worse than contacting a gallery about a represented artist (after viewing outdated information on his or her website) only to find out the artist is no longer represented by the gallery. It may cause the potential buyers to have doubts about the honesty of the artist... it may cause the gallery to doubt the integrity of the artist as well. Don't put off vital updates for too long (where you are currently represented is vital information in my opinion) -- you may forget to make necessary edits if you fail to address the change in a timely manner.

Artist Website Tips: Think about location when listing art exhibits

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "You may want to think about the location of your past art exhibits when listing them on your artist website. As the old saying goes, 'location is everything'. This old saying holds true today (perhaps more than ever). Generally speaking, people tend to be impressed by location. Some locations are far more impressive than others -- you, dear artist, need to think about location when listing your past exhibits on your website." (Brian Sherwin)

Watercolors Can Be a Fragile Medium for Artists and Collectors

  (via www.huffingtonpost.com)


 "Conservators would not have their hands so filled with art requiring extensive repair if artists used archival materials to begin with. Franz Kline, for instance, painted on the Yellow Pages, while Jackson Pollock occasionally used shirt cardboard. They probably did not expect these pictures to last for the ages, but collectors, who spend large amounts of money for works by these artists, do. It behooves both the artist and the collector, therefore, to proceed with greater care." (Daniel Grant)
