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




Appropriation Art Meets De-Appropriation Art -- An Art Movement Born?

by Brian Sherwin on 4/30/2011 1:02:46 PM

I'm starting to think that De-Appropriation may become the next trendy art movement-- at least online. I doubt that was Cat Weaver's intention when she revealed her "first ever De-Appropriation" of artist Richard Prince's work on a Hyperallergic article shortly after a court ruled in favor of photographer Patrick Cariou-- deeming Prince a copyright infringer.

The Right Way to Publish Your Blog to Facebook

by Clint Watson on 4/29/2011 2:32:37 PM

The final, most important not to use your full-content feed is this: You and I should not be working so hard only build traffic for Facebook (so they can sell Facebook ads). I am working hard to share my thoughts with my audience.....but I want to do it on my site, presented the way I want it presented, and shared in a way that brings people to my website. [...]

Jane! Jane! Answer Me!

by Carolyn Henderson on 4/29/2011 9:05:26 AM

Communication is key: if somebody makes the effort to contact you regarding your art, jump on it and answer them. You may not be able to get back that same day, but do your best to ensure that the week doesn't end before you either address the issue or give contacts a time line as to when you will. [...]

Painting Colorful Lights and Darks

by Lori Woodward on 4/27/2011 9:31:26 AM

Please don't hesitate to ask me questions. I, by no means, am saying this is the only way to paint. There are many valid approaches to art - some artists are tonalists, others are colorists; some are realists, and others are impressionists or abstract artists, and that's perfectly OK. I am here to present ideas to you - which you may take or leave as you like. [...]

Art and Tolerance

by Donald Fox on 4/25/2011 1:45:56 PM

Lately, especially within the United States, there have been attempts to politicize the arts along with just about everything else. Education, libraries, the internet, religion, books, the media, practically every aspect of society has been pulled into this political maelstrom. Underneath it all lays a single motivation, which is fear: the fear that someone or some group will gain the upper hand and exert control over everyone else. In short, the conspiracy theorists, be they on the right or the left, are in their heyday. [...]

Andy Warhol + Religion = Contemporary Art World

by Brian Sherwin on 4/23/2011 2:36:41 PM

What I find interesting about this is that some of the same people who show prejudice towards anything that has to do with the Christian view of God will openly praise Andy Warhol and the influence he had on the art world-- some going as far as to suggest that Andy Warhol gave birth to the mainstream art world we recognize today. Apparently they are not aware that Warhol was a devote Ruthenian Rite Catholic-- and that he most likely believed in and worshipped God considering that he attended church on a daily basis for most of his life. Warhol was known to describe himself as a religious person. Though private about his religious affairs it is clear that he had faith. [...]

The Double Merits of the Final Varnish

We took the art to a local art restoration expert. And amazingly, she was able to completely save every single painting. And she told us why: A few months earlier we had contacted this particular couple and offered to varnish all of their oil paintings. The restoration expert told us that the varnish had saved the paintings [...]

The Destruction of Andres Serrano's 'Piss Christ' fuels Debate and Hate due to Piss Journalism

by Brian Sherwin on 4/20/2011 12:19:34 PM

An article by the Guardian UK about the destruction of controversial artist Andres Serrano's "Piss Christ" at a museum in France has fueled debate about religion and art. The story-- which has spread virally by individuals who are understandable angry about the destruction-- has fueled the idea that all Christians and all social/political conservatives are against art due in part to the irresponsibility of the articles author Angelique Chrisafis. It serves as another example of how the irresponsibility of a mainstream media author can cultivate hate against people of a specific faith-- in this case all Christians -- and empower stereotypes about how all people following a specific religion view art.

Mobile Artist Websites: Are You Ready for the Coming Growth Explosion?

by Clint Watson on 4/20/2011 9:47:53 AM

Did you know that accessing the Internet via mobile devices is the fastest growing part of the growth of the web today? The iPhone truly did change everything. I see it every day as people I know increasingly use or purchase a smartphone...including the most computer illiterate person I know...Your art website should be mobile friendly. Here's why: I am actually MORE engaged in looking at art on a mobile device because mobile devices are inherently consumption devices, while desktop computers are production devices. [...]

Thoughts on Selling Art Online: Help Links to your Artist Website spread Virally

by Brian Sherwin on 4/16/2011 5:45:02 PM

My first suggestion is a basic aspect of online marketing that artists, based on my experience, tend to overlook. That suggestion being-- the need to post links to your artist website or specific images of your artwork online. By making a routine of posting links to your art you will help your art to spread virally online. There is nothing wrong with helping to get the ball rolling, so to speak. [...]

So is it Good for the Artist? Reproductions Rant (Take #2)

When I look at the websites of my favorites, people whose work I admire and whose level I would love to achieve some day, I don't see reproductions available, or print-on-demand anything. I see originals. Paintings that are one of a kind. Work that shows the artist has been in the studio, not out making reproductions. [...]

Working With Galleries: How Often is Your Work Displayed?

by Lori Woodward on 4/13/2011 8:58:12 AM

Collectors must see your work on a regular basis - either online or else on the wall of the gallery. In essence, your work must "meet" with collectors' eyes often in order to make an impact. If your gallery isn't making that happen for you, then it's up to you to make sure it does happen. [...]
