The scourge of the bronze zombies: how terrible statues are ruining art

  (via www.theguardian.com)


 "It may be time to ban artists from creating statues. They have simply lost the ability to do it. The art that once gave us Michelangelo's David and Rodin's Burghers of Calais has degenerated into a cynical province of second-rate hacks who are filling up city squares, railway stations and other public spaces all over the world with ugly, stupid and occasionally terrifying parodies of the human form." (Jonathan Jones)

Discuss: 'Snail mail' newsletter

  (via faso.com)


 "Do any of you send out a 'snail mail' newsletter? An artist on Facebook mentioned that he sends out a physical newsletter to approximately 200 people several times each year. My understanding is that he prints it off from home. Each issue covers his recent work (with images), offers a Q&A section and mentions upcoming exhibits or lectures. He said the only drawback is the cost of stamps. The addresses were obtained during exhibits. Have any of you tried this? Is it something you would consider doing?" (Brian Sherwin)

What to Charge for Art Licensing - Royalties Advances and Flat Fees

  (via mariabrophy.com)


 "How much of a flat fee should you ask for? Like all deals, the range is wide. I know of some artists who charge as little as $100 per image for a flat fee license. In the greeting card industry, an artist might be paid a flat fee of $275 - $500 for a card design. I've had deals in the action sports market where I charged a flat fee of $1,500 per image, with a price break if they license multiple images." (Maria Brophy)

10 Tips for Stenciling

  (via painting.about.com)


 "Don't overload a brush with paint as it'll seep under the edges of the stencil. Load the brush lightly, so that the ends of the bristles are covered evenly; wipe off any excess on a piece of paper or cloth." (Marion Boddy-Evans)

Discuss: Live music during an exhibit opening

  (via faso.com)


 "An artist friend of mine recently mentioned that providing live music during an exhibit opening can be a great way to attract gallery visitors. I explored this route in the past while working with galleries. This much I learned: Most visitors will end up focusing on the music instead of the art. Live music can be a great way to bring people in -- but not so great if the goal is to have them concentrate on the art exhibit. What do you think? Do you have any tips on how to mesh the two without distracting people? " (Brian Sherwin)

Liberating the Anonymous Figures in Old Master Paintings

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "In the past year, obscure figures from master paintings in museums around the world have been moonlighting as street art, thanks to a project called Outings. It began last August, after the French artist Julien de Casabianca visited the Louvre and noticed a bored-looking girl in one painting's corner. I had a Prince Charming' impulse, he recently told Slate. I wanted to free her from the castle to give her a second life" ( Laura C. Mallonee)

Discuss: Do any of you use found objects?

  (via faso.com)


 "Many artists add found objects to their paintings and sculptures. They prowl for objects to use in attics, thrift stores and other locations. An item discarded on the side of the road may be viewed as a creative treasure in this context." (Brian Sherwin)

Painting Skin Tones

  (via painting.about.com)


 "Exactly what colors you use for painting skin tones and how many is a matter of personal preference and style. About the only thing that's certain is that having one or two tubes of paint labeled "skin color" (the names depend on the manufacturer) isn't going to suffice." (Marion Boddy-Evans)

Artist Who Furtively Photographed His Neighbors Wins in Court, Again

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "Regardless of Svenson's intentions and what is deemed legal, was it ethical for him to photograph his neighbors without their consent for his own artistic benefit? Is continuing to show the images a form of bullying, wherein art takes precedence over people's distress? Or, on the other hand, could anyone really be so bothered by his images? The people in them seem anonymous enough." (Laura C. Mallonee)
