Art Marketing Ideas and Straight Talk about Selling Art, Marketing, Inspiration & Fine Living




Art Education: Learn to unlearn what you have learned

by Brian Sherwin on 11/30/2011 3:40:02 PM

What we have learned can become an obstacle. Artists often allow themselves to be caged in by what they have learned from mentors, art professors, art critics... you name it -- most are bombarded with the influence of art education. [...]

Confidence Part 2

by Keith Bond on 11/28/2011 10:17:11 AM

Be careful not to rely too heavily on the acceptance of others. True confidence comes from within. Recognition from others can be good (sales or critical acclaim). These things can confirm or strengthen your faith in yourself. But too heavy a dependence on them can also crush you when you get rejected from a show or when you have periods of slower sales. Confidence based upon outside forces is fleeting and volatile. Inner confidence endures despite the ups and downs. But, not without work. [...]

Hoarding Art: The art collection in the attic

Faith and Fear: Controversial exhibit Hide/Seek : Difference and Desire in American Portraiture returns

by Brian Sherwin on 11/21/2011 1:34:40 PM

The people who challenged Hide/Seek were utilizing fear for their own ends -- all while hiding said motivations under a blanket of faith. As a Christian -- no, as a person -- I feel that behavior was absolutely horrid. [...]

by Keith Bond on 11/21/2011 7:44:06 AM

There is a delicate balancing act between fear and confidence. An artist needs a healthy balance between the two extremes. I know artists who are extremely gifted and create masterful works, but completely void of confidence. I know other artists who have almost no skill, yet they are totally confident. Then, of course, there are those who are good and know it and there are those who realize that they don't have what it takes. The best place to be is somewhere in the middle. [...]

Communities Creating Opportunities for Artists

by Moshe Mikanovsky on 11/17/2011 9:36:21 AM

So here is the bottom line - you don't need to be an artist to create artistic opportunities, or if you are an artist, you don't have to create it yourself but rather find the right person with the passion to make it happen. Don't be shy about asking for help. Look at your network for someone who shares your love for art and also has some business background, or is a serial entrepreneur, who knows how to create these opportunities. Partner with them, or start it yourself, at the end you will see the rewards. [...]

Occam's Razor

by Jack White on 11/16/2011 9:47:56 AM

Some of you spend far too much time blogging, doing newsletters, Facebook, Myspace, Linkedin, tweeting, gabbing on the phone, texting and other social stuff that I've never heard of. You cannot improve without putting miles on your medium. Think about the Occams Razor approach in relation to being connected with people. Choose the top people in your friends and family list. Eliminate all the needless chatter. Pick the three things that work best. Improve on relationships that matter and put your heartfelt effort in making the best work ever. It's not about how many people you talk with daily, but rather if you improve your art. No one can do everything. Focus on what you do best and make that superior. Don't be a Jack of All Trades and Master of None. This is the quickest route to failure. [...]

An Assignment for You

by Keith Bond on 11/14/2011 8:37:19 AM

I'll be the first to admit that goal setting has never been my strong point in the past. But I have reached the point where I want to take more control of my business. I want to grow it, not just get by. This exercise was great for me, because it takes those goals and gives me the steps I need to take to get there. I am excited for what I have planned in the next year. I am excited to tackle my obstacles and achieve my goals. [...]

Leveraging Your Income With Reproductions

by Lori Woodward on 11/11/2011 8:56:19 AM

It's funny, people know what amateur sounds and looks like with singers and dancers, but no one seems to know what the dividing line between amateur and professional is with visual art. So be it... but the collectors I know are pretty smart about what they collect. No one is going to buy a high priced work just because it's priced high - that work must prove its value in some way.

Art Pricing: Is it time for the unwritten rules of art pricing to change?

by Brian Sherwin on 11/10/2011 9:13:56 PM
