Comment on this

Artist Marjory Wilson creates fantastic botanical paintings. She works primarily with acrylic paints. Concerning her work, Marjory said, "I pick particular views based on how they affect me.

The Race to the Top

by Brian Sherwin on 12/17/2014 7:34:39 AM
6 Comments

Our friend John would have been a much happier art student and graduate had he not tried to bite the carrot straight out of the gate. He would have had fond memories of his first museum exhibit instead of viewing it as a defeat in hindsight (he is still a tad bitter over the fact that it did not result in an art magazine review). Ignore the 'mainstream success' carrot. Sink your teeth into your work... "I think having mainstream success is when you are meeting your goals," -- focus on YOUR goals -- specifically your art studio goals. In the end the work is the only thing that should matter. You may win the race in the process. [...]

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

by Brian Sherwin on 11/26/2014 7:11:09 AM
21 Comments

Don't get me wrong-- It is great to branch out in the studio! But as far as exhibiting is concerned, I think specialization -- a clear focus of style and methods -- is of great importance if you want to increase your chances of the exhibit having a lasting impact on viewers. The way you explore art in your studio may not be the best way to present yourself within the context of an art exhibit. [...]

Let's Have an Ar(t)gument: When a gallery refuses to sell art to a customer

by Brian Sherwin on 11/12/2014 8:23:51 AM
15 Comments

I'm interested in knowing how YOU would feel if the gallery representing you refused to sell your work to a potential buyer. Would you be upset if your gallery made the decision based on bold assumptions concerning the motive or status of the prospective buyer? Would you view it as the gallery looking out for your best interest -- or would you view it as a lost opportunity 'rooted' in fear? Would you reconsider your relationship with the gallery if a scenario like this happened? [...]
