Discuss: What would you do if your gallery decided to represent a celebrity?

  (via faso.com)


 "Edward Winkleman, a NY-based art dealer and gallery owner, recently revealed his concern about celebrity art exhibits. He stated that his complaint is, "about letting celebrities cut to the head of the queue, just because they're famous." and added, "There are a lot of other artists out there patiently waiting for that time and attention." He implied that art galleries have made a mockery of art by pandering to celebrity artists. " (Brian Sherwin)

Discuss: Read this before signing a vanity gallery contract.

  (via faso.com)


 " I never really understood how the vanity gallery model thrives. I can't grasp why some artists choose to 'feed' them. The cost can be extremely high for the artists -- that goes 10 fold if it is located in NY or another art world / culture hub (we are talking $3,000+ for some of these vanity spaces). In my opinion, it would be much wiser -- and possibly cheaper -- to band together with a few like-minded artists in order to rent a space for a one-off exhibit. " (Brian Sherwin)

That's Obvious... I Could Have Done That

  (via faso.com)


 "The only way that you can learn and improve is to constantly be evaluating what other artists have done and actually try it. Just looking at it isn't going to tell you anything. Of course, it's obvious that he paints the hair that way. How would you paint it differently? Well, try to actually paint it." (Doug Hoppes)

Leaflock and Skinbark

  (via www.edwardwinkleman.com)


 "Again, the art world often takes itself way too seriously and that's also a problem, and this is not a complaint about extending the fine art world's view to include and encompass more of culture at large. It's a complaint about letting celebrities cut to the head of the queue, just because they're famous. There are a lot of other artists out there patiently waiting that time and attention." (Edward Winkleman)

Let's Have an Ar(t)gument: Is gallery loyalty important?

  (via theartedge.faso.com)


 "Both groups expressed the importance of gallery loyalty (being honest to the gallery representing you, refusing to do under the table' deals with art buyers or other galleries, handling disputes professionally and privately, etc.). Of this, Winkleman stated, "I'm surprised how many (artists) feel that "loyalty to the gallery" is important, given the social media chatter about it not being so."" (Brian Sherwin)

The Art Trophies from When the White House Went Up in Flames

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "The rather erroneously named War of 1812 (it stretched until 1815) is one of the lesser-known wars of the United States. Still, art looted away in the calamity of August 24, 1814, the day the British torched the White House and other buildings in Washington, DC, remains scattered along the war lines." (Allison Meier )

Landscape Painting Past and Present

  (via painting.about.com)


 "There are many contemporary landscape painters who continue to feel a spiritual connection to a place and are inspired to paint it. As environmental degradation occurs at an alarming rate, landscape painting serves to remind us of what we have and what we might lose. The power of landscape painting lies in capturing the beauty and light of places that exist today but may very well be lost to encroaching development." (Lisa Marder)

How Do You Get Started Creating Again After a Setback?

  (via faso.com)


 "When faced with a return to creating artwork, try not to let intimidation get in your way. Play with a new technique, rehab a painting that has been set aside or try a new medium or support. Most of all, focus on the fun of creating and don't give up, for if you explore new ideas or revisit old ones, you will find your inspiration returning" (Jan Stommes)
