The Biggest Mistake on Most Artist Websites

by Clint Watson on 2/28/2013 7:43:05 AM
12 Comments

I reply to the artists whose works I particularly enjoy and ask them if they have an email newsletter and let them know that I'd like to be on it. And even when I go to the trouble to beg these artists to add me to a newsletter list... they don't. I have yet to receive even one newsletter from any artist in this group. [4] Multiply that mistake dozens of times over and you're costing yourself, over your career's lifetime, thousands of dollars in sales (if not more). Make this mistake enough times and perhaps it will even cost you an art career at all. [...]

Don’t make a half-hearted effort and quit halfway through. Don’t slink away with your crazy horse and sigh, “Well, I tried…” Give it your full attention, your highest intention, and your best shot. Give your art the opportunity it—and you—truly deserve. [...]

Stop Worrying About Yourself – Focus on Others (Part 2)

by Keith Bond on 2/25/2013 7:29:13 AM
15 Comments

Creating is a very personal inward endeavor. We, as artists, create from within. “You” focus on what “you” want to say with “your” art. “You” get inspired by “your” muse. “Your” work is an expression of “your” emotions or ideas, etc. And it should be. Your art needs to be genuine. Just as the desire to teach needs to be genuine. But how do you bridge that gap between creating for self yet focus on your collectors? [...]

Art and Business: Why do art galleries refuse to share their client list with represented artists? Part 2

Art galleries are protective of their client lists for several reasons. There are financial and legal factors to consider. Keep that in mind before assuming that a gallery is 'out to cheat' artists by 'hiding' the client list. [...]

Do People Buy More Art in the Bad Economy?

by Clint Watson on 2/21/2013 7:31:50 AM
19 Comments

This downturn is real and some sobering and tragic stories have come out of it. But many people are still refusing to acknowledge that we're in a "new normal." Now I certainly don't mean to minimize anyone's difficulties, but for many smart, talented, able-bodied folks, if they would actually accept this as the new normal and be willing to make the necessary changes, they could continue to thrive. While the economy is sluggish, it's still a huge, huge, huge, innovative 15 trillion dollar economy and you are entitled to your piece of it. [...]

Art and Business: Why do art galleries refuse to share their client list with represented artists? Part 1

by Brian Sherwin on 2/19/2013 2:10:43 PM
40 Comments

I understand why art galleries, as a business, are protective of their client list. After all, the client list IS the livelihood of the gallery AND the represented artists (that goes 10 fold if the represented artists have an exclusive contract with the gallery!). Point-blank, to reveal that information would be like committing 'business suicide'. [...]

Loud, Brash, Irritating People

Well, it looks like we’re dealing with some emotional insecurity here, and that’s okay. If our person were simply loud, brash, and irritating, we would move on to another table, but when our loud, brash and irritating colleague possesses something we want but don’t have, then he has an effect on us.

Art Press Release: Think outside of the box

by Brian Sherwin on 2/17/2013 2:09:52 PM

I, for one, think that artists limit themselves (and their art business) when adhering to a limited view of how, when, and why a press release can be used to garner press. It is time to think 'outside of the box'. [...]

So listen to all of us here who write for FineArtViews. Some of us think one thing, some of us another. Maybe they’re right for where you are now. Maybe I’m right for where you’ll be in a few years—or never! Some things will sit well with you, some things won’t. The one thing you can bet on? It’s all good. For somebody, somewhere, sometime. Maybe even you. Right here. Right now. [...]
