Don't Fear The Copycats

by Clint Watson on 6/29/2010 10:59:39 AM
49 Comments

An artist (Let's call him "Leonardo") recently wrote to me for some advice about a situation he's facing. It seems another person is painting "copies" of Leonardo's artwork and passing the copies off as original, without attribution...This happens from time to time. As someone who's been in the art business since 1989, I've seen it more than once. [...]

How to Give Without Being Taken Part 1

by Luann Udell on 6/24/2010 10:30:56 AM
41 Comments

Seriously, folks, whatever your thoughts on art and money, most artists like to believe their work has value. And many of us are thrilled when others value our work, too. Especially when they value it enough to actually buy it. Which is why it gets tricky when people ask us to donate our work. [...]

10 Ways to Beat Post Exhibition Blues

by Jennie Rosenbaum on 6/11/2010 9:39:28 AM
43 Comments

Something that I never knew when I started exhibiting was that it's very common to have the post exhibition blues. There is a let down after the huge event. You spend so much time focusing on it all; creating artworks, hanging, publicizing, etc. it becomes a massive high capped off by the opening. Then, suddenly, it's over and your life can seem...empty.
