11 Things You Need for an Art Exhibition Besides Your Paintings

  (via painting.about.com)


 "Post-exhibition blues are very real. The let-down when everything you've been striving towards has been achieved can leave you feeling empty. Avoid it by having a plan for what you're going to be doing next, what you're going to paint, the next body of work. It doesn't have to be anything huge, just something for when you step into your studio the next day that you start on." (Marion Boddy-Evans)

Mapping the Most Expensive Artworks Sold by Country

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "howmuch.net attempts to look at art valuation based on country of origin. The website, which visualizes all types of cost estimates, filled in the areas of various nations with their most expensive paintings, detailing the sale prices below each map. Discrepancies aside, the study concludes that the maps illustrate "the accumulation of wealth in rich nations," showing the increasing value of artworks as investments rather than objects appreciated solely for aesthetic reasons.

Organize an Exhibition of Your Paintings

  (via painting.about.com)


 "Don't leave the framing until the last minute. At one of my shows, my regular framer went on holiday two weeks before my opening, and I still had work to frame. Fortunately I found another good framer who I have consistently used since then. Even so, it is best to get this done as early as you can." (Denise MacGregor )

Don't Cry for Me Europa : European Galleries Have Big Advantages Over Most Others

  (via www.edwardwinkleman.com)


 "The conventional wisdom for years has been that New York galleries have it so much better than European ones, and while there may be tax, collector preference, and other considerations that curb the real-world impact of the following data to some degree, it would seem that as sales move out of gallery spaces and into art fair contexts, there's no reason to cry for Europa.

"I'm sorry... WHAT did you sign??" Part Two

  (via www.artsyshark.com)


 "The last big no-no that I see with entering into artist representative agreements is lack of diversification. When you sign an artist representative agreement, the agent usually requires that you grant them exclusive representation of your work. So you're putting all of your eggs in one basket." (Emily Danchuk )

Canadian Modernist Emily Carr Finally Gets Her Due

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "In the discussion around underrepresented female artists in the art world, one name is slowly becoming more well known. Famous in Canada for being a kind of wild woman of the woods, Emily Carr was a fiercely independent artist of the early 20th century who did paintings and drawings of the British Columbia landscape, but who is perhaps better known for her eccentricities, like keeping monkeys and parrots as house pets." (Catherine Kustanczy )

My First Art Fair Checklist

  (via www.mikanovsky.com)


 "One of the best pieces of advice I gotten is to keep all the art work similar. This way, the visitors will understand me as an artist and things will make sense to them. This made the decision on which paintings to bring easier - I picked the style I am mostly known for, and for which I am recognized, and everything that doesn't fit this style, I am leaving behind. As much as I want to sell some of my other work, I think it will hurt my display rather than help it." (Moshe Mikanovsky)

That doesn't mean you need to delve into your pocketbook to afford safe transport methods, although if you can afford it, there are plenty of online vendors who sell tools and materials specifically designed for this purpose.

What's it Worth to Ya?

  (via faso.com)


 "Is it worth the risk to become who you claim you want to be? You have a job, dependents, a physical limitation, or some reason to limit your self before even trying? Guess who will find out if you put in effort and skill to your craft in the long run? You know the answer. But, ask yourself this: Is it worth it not to?" (Ruthie Briggs Greenberg)

How to Sell Your Art

  (via theworkingartist.com)


 "Many artists sell work themselves out of their studio, online, at co-operative galleries, or even at one of the thousands of art fairs that are so popular. But just because you are an artist, doesn't mean that you know how to sell your work. In fact most artists really struggle with sales and marketing and face consistent disappointment." (Crista Cloutier)

How to Hang a Painting with Wire and D-Rings

  (via painting.about.com)


 "If you've ever been woken in the middle of the night by a painting that's fallen off the wall because the piece of string hanging it has broken, then you won't need persuading to use picture wire instead. Wire is stronger than string, and the knots won't come undone." (Marion Boddy-Evans)

Discuss: How do YOU define success as an artist?

  (via faso.com)


 "True success for an artist, in my opinion, is the strength to push on with your art when the world is not at your feet. Most artists will never receive the spotlight they deserve-- but an artist can easily leave his or her own mark within the global art community. Leave fame and fortune up to chance-- focus on creating art and gaining exposure for your art today. Take as many steps as you need to realize that you can truly be a successful artist beyond the bar that has been placed above you. " (Brian Sherwin)
