Networking for Artists Part #2: Making Connections: How to Start Conversations that Matter

by Kesha Bruce on 5/29/2013 8:32:32 AM
14 Comments

Networking is as much about giving as it is about taking. It's about listening, not talking. It's not just about asking for help, it's about generosity of spirit and the willingness to commit to helping others. Networking is about valuing what you have to offer this world and not being afraid to share it. [...]

FASO Featured Artists: Artist Anthony Dallmann-Jones

by Carrie Turner on 5/29/2013 7:19:07 AM
Comment on this

Artist Anthony Dallmann-Jones creates light sculptures. His light sculptures / installations often involve hand-cut pieces of special metallic glass and a single light beam source. Anthony notes that he has a background in working with ceramics, watercolor painting, and acrylic painting (large abstract paintings). His interest in abstraction fueled his desire to create work that exemplifies artistic freedom -- this foundation evolved into his current fascination with light sculpture. [...]

Art and Psychology: Social Conditioning and the Art World

by Brian Sherwin on 5/28/2013 6:05:13 PM
2 Comments

Social conditioning within the art world runs deep. Artists find themselves trapped by boundaries that they are conditioned to have within the art world itself. For example, many artists are conditioned to believe that they must do 'this and that' (move to NYC, earn an MFA, gain attention by a specific art magazine, exhibit at a specific art fair, hire a specific manager or art coach... etc.) in order to be a 'successful artist'. This rhetoric can spread like a plague -- spurring artists to question the value of what they do when compared to all of the 'glorified' hearsay / hype. [...]

Even Vegans Have to Deal with Spam

by Carolyn Henderson on 5/28/2013 7:07:42 AM
7 Comments

But spammers, like all dishonest people out to make money without actually earning it, are innovative and intelligent, and they are constantly changing their tactics to outwit the tactics of the anti-spammers. And the anti-spammers figure out what they’re doing and block them, at which point the spammers introduce a new concept that the anti-spammers haven’t addressed yet. [...]

Donating Art: Art donations and charity auctions

by Brian Sherwin on 5/26/2013 5:24:33 PM
16 Comments

It is not uncommon for organizations (specifically arts organizations) to hold fundraising auctions in order to secure extra funding. I applaud those efforts. However, these auctions often involve donated artwork – the result of a 'flood' of donation requests sent to various artists. There is only one problem with this process – several problems, actually.

Remember to Respect your Audience

by Brian Sherwin on 5/22/2013 5:16:45 PM
2 Comments

No matter how successful you become -- people will respect you if you still take the time to reach out to others. The snappy 'Do you know who I am!' remarks don't win fans... remarks like that tend to push away even the most dedicated supporters (we see that happen often with actors and musicians). Thus, strive to be as humble as you can be. [...]

Painting Large en Plein Air

by Keith Bond on 5/20/2013 7:29:41 AM
27 Comments

I find that most of my plein air works could have been greatly improved in compositional choices. This is one of many reasons my plein air work serves mostly as studies and not as finished paintings. If I do a very large canvas, I wouldn’t want to consider it a mere study. I would want a finished painting. But with all the visual stimuli out there and quickly changing light, most compositions aren’t as well thought out as they could be. [...]

Is Perfection Holding You Back?

by Brian Sherwin on 5/20/2013 6:40:40 AM
27 Comments

We often forget that even the most praised artists created 'lesser' works. The works we view in the books -- and at museums -- likely reflect only a small percentage of what the artist created throughout his or her life. They tend to be the 'best of the best'. You have to step back and think of all of the 'failures' that led up to those works. Don't be fooled into thinking that those praised artists created one masterpiece after another. Heck, even the Old Masters made mistakes... so it is safe to assume that even they faced doubt while chasing perfection. [...]

Making a Grown Man Cry

by Lynne Hurd Bryant on 5/17/2013 7:45:14 AM
34 Comments

The brushstrokes we leave on the lives of others never fade, but I didn’t know that was literal as well as figurative. It is time to put my fears aside and move forward with understanding and faltering confidence. It is not too late to follow a 30-year-old dream and to paint like there is no tomorrow until all my tomorrows are gone. [...]

His photographs often involve unique perspectives of situations found within the natural world. In a sense, his work reminds us not to take the beauty of nature for granted. [...]

Lessons From Old Art Magazines

by Mark Edward Adams on 5/16/2013 7:09:02 AM
18 Comments

I realized that the artists who managed to fight through this recession have a better shot at longevity than most. The recession was a test of your resolve and passion. I think as we come out of these rough times we will be more adept at survival and will have gained the skills necessary to make a long fruitful artistic career. There will still be those that fade away but we are more likely to grow and bend with the times and prosper. [...]

The Artist Statement: Art collectors and artist statements

by Brian Sherwin on 5/16/2013 1:43:38 AM
5 Comments

It is true that some art collectors don't care about artist statements -- or details about artistic process, for that matter -- but others DO care. They WANT that information. In my opinion, it is better to have that info -- cover all the bases -- than ignore it outright. The art collectors who don't care about said info will likely avoid reading a statement if it is provided. Fair enough. That said, the collectors who WANT to read your artist statement WILL end up searching for it on your website. Imagine their disappointment when said info is not provided. They may look elsewhere...

Hubris Precedes the Plunge

by Jack White on 5/15/2013 7:43:36 AM
19 Comments

Fifteen minutes of fame doesn’t make a career. An article in a magazine, newspaper, interview on television or multiple print ads may stroke your ego, but nothing much else. An artist’s career is a lifetime venture. Just because an artist is on top doesn’t mean they are sheltered from a crash. As has been stated, the higher you climb, the harder you fall. [...]
