The Secret to Successfully Marketing Your Work

by Carolyn Henderson on 12/29/2010 9:11:31 AM

It is a good goal, and a lofty one, to make a living off of one's art. Whether one achieves this goal, however, does not determine whether one has made a success of one's life. A truly successful life is one that incorporates honesty, integrity, honor, perseverance, diligence, and a concern for others. [...]

Not everyone is experiencing financial difficulties right now. But everyone is in some way or another being affected by the economy, artists chief among them. In the last several years we have seen a steady change in the art market and the marketing of art. The internet has transformed just about everything having to do with art; how it is presented, found, discovered, purchased and enjoyed. [...]

Respect Your Collectors Part 2

20 Comments

But people who love our work, people who support us in so many ways—by purchasing it, by recommending it to their friends, by telling us what it means to them — these people are not the “tedious little things in life. They are part of the “big thing”. They are what got us to this wonderful place, a place where we can make the work we love and share it with the world. Remember that, and you will always respect your collectors, large and small. [...]

Artists' Personal Lives: Does it Play a Role in How You View Their Art?

by Brian Sherwin on 12/18/2010 1:09:27 PM
60 Comments

I can recall a project that I was involved with while taking a college level psychology class that explored this issue. We showed a group of people images of art without saying who the artist behind the artwork was. I recall that we had to make sure that the people involved did not recognize the artist's work. The two artists that stick out in memory happened to be Adolf Hitler and John Lennon-- two names that need no introduction for very different reasons. The goal was simply to see how people reacted with their art criticism after finding out who created the art. [...]

What Norm Taught Me

by Kevin Mizner on 12/14/2010 8:34:39 AM

Every magazine had a painting on it's cover. Newspapers used artists and drawings for their news stories. Books were often lavishly illustrated. And illustrators made a damn fine wage. In an age when a new automobile cost $400.00, a successful illustrator made over $100,000.00 a year. That's not exactly chump change even today! [...]

Beautiful, uplifting, meaningful art has a purpose in the world. There is a need for more of it – a critical need. As society gets uglier, the need becomes greater. What will it take to gain greater recognition and acceptance of the value of art? Will it ever reach the mainstream? What can you do? What can I do? Let’s begin an Art Movement that reaches the scope and scale of the green and organic movements. [...]

Respect Your Collectors Part 1

by Luann Udell on 12/9/2010 12:11:55 PM
26 Comments

I was an art history major and my decorating scheme showed that. Noting my walls covered with posters and reprints of fine art and ancient art, my friend commented that for not much more money, I could have the real thing—real paintings, art and fine craft instead of the knock-offs and mass-produced stuff available in mail-order catalogs and the big-box stores. “But I like Van Gogh and Chinese scroll paintings and Egyptian cat sculptures and stuff!” I exclaimed. “And I can’t afford the real thing.” He challenged my assumptions about acquiring art. In the process, he changed my life. [...]

Experts know what they're doing, they know where they need to get and they stay on that road steadily until they reach it. [...]
