Find a Space - Be a Face

by Brian Sherwin on 12/23/2014 7:17:12 AM
14 Comments

I realize that many artists view the search for gallery representation as a stressful journey. It is easy to lose hope when faced with gallery rejection on a regular basis. You must learn to expect and accept rejection from galleries. But please, please don't lose hope! Focus on being a 'face' at the next gallery you pursue. [...]

Artist Marjory Wilson creates fantastic botanical paintings. She works primarily with acrylic paints. Concerning her work, Marjory said, "I pick particular views based on how they affect me.

The Race to the Top

by Brian Sherwin on 12/17/2014 7:34:39 AM
9 Comments

Our friend John would have been a much happier art student and graduate had he not tried to bite the carrot straight out of the gate. He would have had fond memories of his first museum exhibit instead of viewing it as a defeat in hindsight (he is still a tad bitter over the fact that it did not result in an art magazine review). Ignore the 'mainstream success' carrot. Sink your teeth into your work... "I think having mainstream success is when you are meeting your goals," -- focus on YOUR goals -- specifically your art studio goals. In the end the work is the only thing that should matter. You may win the race in the process. [...]

Artist Damien Gonzales divides his time between painting outdoors and in the studio. Damien is an oil painter -- focusing primarily on landscape painting.

He notes that he enjoys representational works and aspects of impressionism that impart a sublime quality to a painting. [...]

Today, Iím going to touch on the very basics of Facebook marketing, passing on what weíve learned, again with the idea of opening discussion to other peopleís experiences. If you are an avid social media mogul, this may seem hopelessly inane, but if youíve been avoiding this particular social media site (and judging by what Iíve encountered in writing about artists for the gallery at which I work, this is not uncommon), then this will jump start you.
