Why We Need Art

by John DeMarco on 4/27/2012 9:26:15 AM
34 Comments

Art is expressive, expansive and evolutive. And it is spiritual and sacred in that it leads us to a deeper, broader, more honest awareness of what, and why, we are. The arts, if they’re properly fed, can help our world avoid a crash and burn; and if they’re not fed, and we do crash, it will be the arts that lift us back up again. [...]

A Movie Quote to Get You Moving

by Luann Udell on 4/26/2012 10:07:02 AM
19 Comments

There comes a time where it just seems too hard to do another show, to face another windy rainstorm at an art festival. Too hard to master yet another social medium in order to promote our work; to approach yet another gallery that will probably say no; to apply for yet another exhibition. At some point, it just seems easier to settle for what we know will work; to stick with the techniques we’ve already mastered; to answer every challenge with a heart-heavy “I tried that once and it didn’t work.” What if all it took were twenty seconds of insane courage?

Taking Off The Mask

by Mark Edward Adams on 4/25/2012 9:54:24 AM
39 Comments

So what does removing the mask mean? This means communicating to strangers like they are our friends. Don't be afraid to give your personal opinions or tell stories about your personal life. Post pictures of yourself working on your art. And most of all, it means talking to anybody who takes the time to engage in conversation. This means comments on Facebook, personal emails, and reviews of your work. It does not need to be a long response, but just a sign that you are listening. [...]

What the death of Thomas Kinkade has revealed about mainstream art critics - Part 2

by Brian Sherwin on 4/19/2012 8:42:25 PM
8 Comments

This is what I want to stress: if we are to criticize the late Thomas Kinkade for creating "comfortable art" -- we should criticize 99% of the artwork hailed by the high profile (mainstream) aspects of the gallery world, art market, and museum world. I suggest that because most of that art is just as 'comfortable' in its own way -- at least to the audience frequenting those exhibits. [...]

The Masterpiece

by Jack White on 4/18/2012 9:30:32 AM
64 Comments

You can spot a David Leffel or Richard Schmid clone when you see their first painting. It’s interesting to thumb through art magazines and see artists copying these and other masters. Copy is all they will ever do, because they will never reach the level of their master. I don’t blame the teachers for being so powerful; it’s the fault of the student not to seek their own level. No matter how well you paint David’s style you will always remain a copy. Your voice will belong to your teacher. Those who stand out have their own original voice. [...]

The Gallery That No Longer Exists

by Carolyn Henderson on 4/17/2012 10:17:31 AM
26 Comments

If one of your galleries closes, you know it, and disseminating material – printed or electronic – intimating that you still show there, isn’t wise. Sure, the name, the location, the reputation may be impressive, but if a potential collector who knows that the gallery is no long extant reads that your work is there, well, they may, unwittingly, change the way they think about you and your art. I did. [...]

What the death of Thomas Kinkade has revealed about mainstream art critics - Part 1

The death of artist Thomas Kinkade has triggered a 'barrage of arrows' from specific circles of the mainstream art world. Notable art critics, ranging from Jerry Saltz to Paddy Johnson, have taken it upon themselves to offer one last 'jab' while, as the saying goes, the corpse is still warm. [...]

Questions You Don't Have to Answer: Do you Teach Classes?

by Luann Udell on 4/12/2012 9:02:30 AM
16 Comments

Sometimes people who love to make things, would rather pay to make one themselves, than pay to own an original. If someone is looking for a reason to say no to your work, the lure of “I can make it myself!” can be a powerful distraction. Taking a class may be a more affordable way to “own” your work, even if it’s just a student’s best copy. The drawback here is, if you’re charging $1,000 for one of your widgets/products, and you teach a class on how to make one for $200, then you may be encouraging a secondary market, one that’s less profitable for you.

Dogs and Artists

by Carolyn Henderson on 4/10/2012 7:49:12 AM
17 Comments

Right or wrong and largely in between, we move forward in accordance with the strengths and weaknesses inherent to our “breeds.” So do all artists – you learn a certain way, you create a certain way, you interact with others a certain way, you market a certain way – all in accordance to what you are inside. Like a dog, you have a potential that can be reached, or not, depending upon training, discipline, teaching, and time – but this potential is specific and individual to you and your unique personality.

Overcorrection

If you suffer from overcorrection, don’t worry, it is part of the growth cycle and you will eventually find the middle ground. As you move back and forth from the right to left of your ideal, you will find that your swings or overcorrections become less severe each time. You are moving ever closer to the middle ground that you are seeking. [...]
