5 Steps to Clearing the Blog in My Throat

by Kim Stubbs on 4/30/2014 7:24:00 AM
7 Comments

Oh, it would be so easy for me to wait until I have all my ducks lined up before starting to blog. To have my entire journey mapped out - what if there are errors in the new website, what font would be best, what images, what if my grammar really sucks (cause it will!)... oh, the excuses are endless...But, what if... what if I just place my hands on the keyboard, and transferring weight to the keys, without fear, actually POST a blog out here. - Ta-da... like this [...]

as an artist you have two choices: You can continue to justify whatever it is that you feel is holding you back by spitting out excuse after excuse. OR you can learn from it -- get to the heart of the problem -- and change the way you approach art making / art marketing. You must make the choice. [...]

The Storm is Coming

by Doug Hoppes on 4/22/2014 7:14:37 AM
9 Comments

When the clouds start moving in fast, you want to be in that position of control. You want to know if a gallery calls you at a moment's notice with a show, you have 20 paintings for a show AND still be able to support the other venues where you sell your art. You want to be prepared for that storm. If you are prepared, it could be a fun ride with a lot of sales, lots of new customers, and lots of new opportunities. If you aren't prepared, you have a great chance of damaging your reputation, losing sales and losing some future opportunities. [...]

The Single Most Important Piece of Advice I Can Give You about Pursuing Your Art

by Carolyn Henderson on 4/21/2014 7:24:29 AM
21 Comments

Now if you, like some of my progeny, are cobbling together three minimum wage jobs just to survive, this wonít seem especially helpful, but my experience is that many, many people who make a decent amount of money are convinced that they donít, and theyíre living paycheck to paycheck. Some of them are convinced that there is no way that they can cut any more out of their budget -- and then, when their hours or cut, or their pay scale plummets because they lose one job and replace it with another, they discover that yes, indeed, they are able to cut in places they never dreamed possible.

Vanity Galleries: A cruel history

by Brian Sherwin on 4/12/2014 8:28:39 AM
16 Comments

The early vanity galleries often targeted females. The 'glass ceiling' of the art world was still fairly rock solid in the 1970s. Women were an easy 'mark' for the vanity gallery model because exhibit opportunities were few and far between. Furthermore, the US gallery scene was almost entirely dominated by males during that time. Vanity gallery owners realized the situation faced by women -- and strived to profit from it. [...]
