A Thousand Doors

by Jack White on 6/26/2013 7:38:42 AM
28 Comments

Smart art galleries know it’s not the words on paper but the emotion in the piece that makes clients pull out the credit card or check book. The gallery’s number one concern is will this stuff sell? What your bio, artist’s statement or resume articulates will be of no help if you don’t make art that connects with buyers. [...]

Comment on this

Herbert Tennison notes that he is an artist and world traveler. Concerning his artwork, Herbert states, "My collection is a visual understanding of the world around us. It is of the beauty that man and nature endow upon us; from imagery requiring little translation but graphically inspirational, to the more abstract and geometrical.". He adds, "My interests, and collection, are as diverse as the world around us." [...]

Training for a Marathon

by Keith Bond on 6/24/2013 7:37:00 AM

In each of these cases, remember to consider the paintings exercises. Don’t worry about getting a masterpiece with each one. It never happens that way anyway. Push yourself. Consider each painting a growing experience. Exercise. Practice. Some will turn out and some won’t. Like the athlete, you will be building both your skills as an artist as well as your confidence.

Artists: Do you know your target audience? Part 5

by Brian Sherwin on 6/23/2013 5:49:44 PM
8 Comments

I have stressed the need for artists to recognize their target audience throughout this series. However, I realize that this task may be easier said than done. I know of artists working with multiple directions in their art studios... and others who have long embraced a solid direction (exploring specific themes, subjects, what have you) -- AND in both groups I have found artists who still have no clue who their target audience is. All is not lost. Your target audience may find you! [...]

Artists: Do you know your target audience? Part 4

by Brian Sherwin on 6/20/2013 10:21:40 PM
9 Comments

Artists who create varied works of art will likely have multiple targets to consider audience-wise. In some ways that is a blessing -- in other ways it is a curse. I put it that way because with varied artworks you will likely have to work double-time (or triple) in order to market your artwork successfully. Having a solid focus -- at least with the artwork you plan to sell– makes things a tad easier. [...]

Counterintuitive Art Branding Lesson from Coca-Cola

by Clint Watson on 6/13/2013 7:25:15 AM
26 Comments

The advice generally goes something like this, "it's important to be consistent in your marketing. Your website, business cards, letterhead, postcards should all match in color and style, and be recognizable, blah, blah, blah, blah". I sometimes wonder if people who give this advice have ever sold a work of art in their lives. [...]

Artists: Do you know your target audience? Part 2

by Brian Sherwin on 6/12/2013 1:02:08 PM
2 Comments

If you are an exhibiting artist you likely have some understanding of who, in a sense, you are creating your artwork for. In other words, you have likely 'picked up' on the type of individuals who tend to frequent exhibit openings at your gallery. That information may be deceptive in that the visitors are likely gallery regulars who show up to every exhibit at the gallery regardless of what is being shown. There may be a combination of factors -- not just YOUR art -- attracting them to that specific art gallery in general. You need to dig deeper if you wish to determine -- and target -- YOUR audience.
