Postcards From the Past

by Luann Udell on 5/24/2012 7:47:44 AM
12 Comments

You know the days when, if you could even get into the top fine craft shows, your success was almost guaranteed. When a single boldly done full-page ad in a magazine could generate tons of response, perhaps even measurable in (gasp!) sales dollars. A time when everyone yearned to have a beautiful handmade website of their work, because then the world would surely beat a path to your door… It struck me that these little missives are like messages in a bottle, veritable postcards from the past. Each contains a little whiff of hard-earned wisdom that still resonates today. [...]

Your Attitude About Auctions

by Keith Bond on 5/21/2012 9:35:01 AM
24 Comments

The idea behind the auction is usually to generate excitement and encourage sales. Many times they are fundraisers. Most of the time, I see auctions billed as “a way to get a great deal for a work of art.” And most of the time, it lives up to that expectation. Rarely do works go for retail and even rarer are the times the works are bid up higher than retail. [...]

Workshop Survival Skills

by Carolyn Henderson on 5/15/2012 7:17:59 AM
12 Comments

Whether you’re giving them or taking them, workshops are a lot of fun.

82 Comments

It’s an odd stereotype we propound – this tenderly sensitive, fragile, batty creature who produces ugly art others swoon over, and while myth is often grounded in truth, it’s time we tore off our berets, crumpled up the smocks, and realized that, while artists are different, they’re not necessarily weird.
