Our Gifts

by Carolyn Henderson on 12/25/2012 6:56:35 AM
14 Comments

Gifts, by their very nature, are things that we cannot and do not earn. Sometimes we give them; sometimes we receive them -- if the former, they deserve our attention, thought, and joyful participation; if the latter, they deserve to be acknowledged and used. Any gift represents a sacrifice on the part of the giver -- time, money, self -- and it is only fitting that the receiver recognize and express gratitude. Properly done, gift giving results in delight for both sides. [...]

I had a hard time deciding to write about this strategy. I firmly believe we should NOT underprice our work. I believe discounts, “seconds” sales and such can undermine our efforts. We could disrespect our customers who were willing to pay our full price for our work. [...]

The Spirit Within Your Art

by Keith Bond on 12/17/2012 7:29:27 AM
24 Comments

An original creation emanates something from within that is felt. Not by your fingers, but within you. Felt by your spirit. I don’t know how or why, but somehow, through the hands of labor and through the labor of love, you imbue within your artistic creation a portion of you. Not your physical self, but in a way part of your spirit self. [...]

Tackling Myths about Art Marketing / Selling Art

by Brian Sherwin on 12/14/2012 5:22:59 PM
22 Comments

I recently read a great article by Cory Huff of The Abundant Artist. Huff's article, titled The Myth of "Good Art Sells Itself", challenged several myths about selling art (both online and offline). I've tackled some of these same myths in the past. It is important to keep these topics at the forefront of debate concerning art marketing in general. I must tip my hat to Cory for targeting the issue. Artists need to discuss these myths now more than ever. [...]

Artists Of The Recession

by Mark Edward Adams on 12/14/2012 7:40:33 AM
15 Comments

Every sale takes an extraordinary amount of work and promotion. I am a product of the recession. I need to push constantly to move forward and think in new ways and make an effort to meet collectors to get out there. I think it is easy to resent the present state of the market, but I don't have any bitterness. I realize that this experience has really been a trial by fire where you must be strong and work hard to sell your work. I think I have gained skills I would have never learned in a strong market.
