The Trail of Waste: The Problem with Artist Business Cards

by Brian Sherwin on 3/31/2013 11:17:25 AM
8 Comments

I would often find a trail of our business cards on the ground when returning back to the gallery location or art fair booth space. In addition, I would often spot other discarded business cards that had been handed out by artists and galleries during the same frame of time. It was so bad at times that I would joke about not having to be worried about getting lost – I could just follow our cards back to the location. It was a trail of waste... wasted money AND wasted opportunity. [...]

Art Marketing History Lesson: Learning from Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) and Die Brücke (The Bridge)

by Brian Sherwin on 3/28/2013 9:18:35 AM
17 Comments

The Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Rider) and Die Brücke (The Bridge) were both known for handing out make-shift booklets about their artwork -- including detailed information about their philosophy as artists. They used the booklets to promote themselves, their art movement, and other causes. This early form of artist self-publishing can still be useful today. Furthermore, it can be accomplished with little expense involved depending on how it is done. [...]

Art Comfort Zone

by Jim Benest on 3/28/2013 7:11:26 AM
16 Comments

To enjoy art, is it really that necessary to have taken art history courses, to have visited some of the great European museums or to be or have been involved in creating something yourself? While these experiences may give you a head start, they certainly are not required to enjoy what someone else has created, today. [...]

Advice on Getting Advice Part 5

by Luann Udell on 3/27/2013 6:59:06 AM
13 Comments

He said very few people are willing or able to put that kind of training into effect. And most of us—being ordinary, hopeful, not-quite-as-disciplined-as-we’d-like-to-think, won’t do it. We’ll “wish” it away—“I think they’re getting better!” “I know it will get better!” But wishing and hoping doesn’t create profound change. We put our feelings on top of the doggie situation. This keeps us from seeing the real problem clearly. It keeps us from acting appropriately. [...]

Wearing a Mask

And yet they felt compelled to create themselves into something that they obviously were not, with the mistaken notion that somehow, people would be more attracted to their substitute persona as opposed to their real personality. Maybe these particular examples weren’t very good, and that’s why they didn’t work -- and maybe there are people out there who have created really, really good alter egos that do work, but the questions for you, and me, is this -- do we need to change who we are to be successful?

Be Careful Who You Feed

by Jack White on 3/20/2013 7:23:19 AM

In all of us is the double conflict of two wolves. One wolf is negative; the other is clear and positive. The negative wolf can instantly give anyone who asks fifty reasons why greatness cannot be achieved. The negative wolf can explain with certainty why your ideas will fail. Most of the time the negative wolf is the one to receive the greatest amount of reinforcement. The positive wolf is ridiculed and given dozens of reason why his ideas are crazy. [...]

You’re Not Dumb

by Carolyn Henderson on 3/19/2013 7:13:55 AM
20 Comments

It is never easy to sell art, and in a sluggish, insecure, unimproving economy in which more and more people find themselves downsized, dazed and down and out, art really doesn’t bounce around in a happy fashion. And yet, especially in a sluggish, insecure, unimproving economy, we need art as a means to point to something higher, greater, mightier, more noble, and more beautiful than what we read about in the news every day.

Developing an Artistic Style Makes Good Art Marketing / Artistic Sense - Part 2

Call it artistic style or creative repetition... either way it helps an artist to gain renown for what he or she is doing. Developing an artistic style can help to set an artist apart from others... while also leaving room for overall artistic growth (it is not as if a style is developed over night!). [...]

Green - It's Everywhere

by Keith Bond on 3/18/2013 7:21:06 AM
21 Comments

To recap, mastery of greens only comes through careful observation and practice. Avoidance is not the answer. You may not paint a summer landscape which is nearly entirely green. But you will still need to understand green to paint a winter scene which seems devoid of green, a portrait of a woman wearing white, or a still life with teapots and eggs. You need not be a master to paint greens convincingly. [...]

I feel very honored that people from all over the world are looking at my artwork and reading my blogs.

Developing an Artistic Style Makes Good Art Marketing / Artistic Sense – Part 1

by Brian Sherwin on 3/14/2013 8:39:59 PM

Being dedicated to an artistic style does not necessarily mean that you are being less creative or less artistic compared to an artist who embraces creativity with a shotgun approach. It just means that you are dedicated to a specific direction. That choice can make perfect business AND artistic sense. [...]

Understanding Rejection From Galleries

by Mark Edward Adams on 3/14/2013 7:15:18 AM
14 Comments

Despite all the types of rejection, the most important part is to keep on moving forward and to not give up. If things are getting bad, take a break and seek out people for their opinion on what you may do to improve your presentation. In the end, it is all a numbers game and it does become a lot easier. It stops becoming this big ordeal and is just part of the job. [...]
