When people say things like, "you just need to get your work 'out there'"..... find should out exactly what 'out there' means...People usually don't have a good idea about what they mean by 'out there' and use such terminology to avoid doing the hard (but required) thinking about art marketing.

You need the discipline to get into your studio and start working...At that point, your love for creating should kick in and it should be fun, not a chore...If you need military-style discipline to keep you on task even after you've started, perhaps you should re-examine why you're an artist in the first place.

Say the Right Thing

by Luann Udell on 7/22/2010 9:08:20 AM
65 Comments

People who see your work for the first time need time to look and browse and think. After you greet them (at a show, at an exhibition), they want time to do that. If they like what they see, they eventually give you permission to talk to them about your work. And they usually do that in the form of...a stupid question. [...]

Art Shows and Festivals - The Professional Way

by Moshe Mikanovsky on 7/15/2010 9:44:05 AM
67 Comments

I thought that my last post would finalize the series on venturing into art fairs and festivals but in the last few days I couldn't stop thinking that something was missing. Well, maybe not just one thing, but it occurred to me that I cannot simply close it off by the DIY display systems. I have to give a stage to the more professional ways available out there. [...]

How Art Exhibition Jurors Make Decisions

by M. Stephen Doherty on 7/7/2010 9:07:20 AM
84 Comments

During more than 30 years of judging national, regional, and local art contests, I learned that the results often depend on completely arbitrary circumstances. What that means to you is that the artistic merit of your painting is only one of the factors influencing whether it is rejected from the exhibition or wins the top award. The more you understand these circumstances, the more likely it will be that you can achieve your goals. [...]

Facebook Like Button Count Inaccuracies

by Clint Watson on 7/6/2010 10:32:44 AM
95 Comments

The Facebook "like" buttons you see embedded on websites incorrectly report the number of "people" who "like" something. Specifically, the button can inflate the displayed count of people. While this is fine when all you want to do is track some general level of "engagement" with a particular item, it was not accurate for the use I needed - counting each "like" as a vote in an online painting competition. What I needed is a way to get the number of actual people who "like" something. And there is a way to retreive that information from Facebook, but it is often a different number from what is shown on the "like" button itself. [...]
