The Ebb and Flow Of Learning

by Roberta Murray on 5/31/2014 7:50:33 AM
7 Comments

Look at learning, or skill building, as a child learning to walk. The toddler does not start off running a marathon but with baby steps and tumbles. Giving yourself permission to fail, over and over again if necessary, will help avoid the discouragement that can lead to giving up. [...]

Award and Honor Myths

I have a suggestion for all of those award seekers and blue ribbon hunters. Spend your efforts on making art that connects with people. Awards impress the grandkids but they don’t move the gauge on selling your product. Art needs to touch the emotions of the buyer. [...]

Is the Old Business Model for Artists Dead?

by Mark Edward Adams on 5/28/2014 7:18:15 AM
8 Comments

I believe that the art market is in a place similar to the music industry in 2005. Big changes are coming and the art market will most likely be very different in ten years. However, if you are the art equivalent of Van Halen, you don't really have to change anything. But if you are not Van Halen, then it is time to figure how to adapt to all the changes. [...]

The Color Problem

by William Schneider on 5/26/2014 7:18:13 AM

You Don't Need a Degree to be a Successful Artist

by Brian Sherwin on 5/24/2014 8:15:48 AM
16 Comments

Only 34% of artists represented by Gagosian Gallery hold an MFA degree. This data is important to take note of because -- like it or not – Gagosian Gallery is one of the most financially successful art galleries in the world. Furthermore, Larry Gagosian is arguably one of the most influential art dealers in the United States at this time. Why is this information important? Simple-- art dealer Larry Gagosian clearly does not beat the 'must have an MFA' drum. [...]

Does Art Need an Audience?

by Donald Fox on 5/9/2014 7:12:51 AM
15 Comments

Artistic purpose has to be considered first and foremost when evaluating art. With most fine art, the intention of the artist is paramount to understanding the work. The artist is always the first audience and the first critic. Whether the artist chooses to extend that audience can depend on many factors. The size of the audience should in no way affect the value of the art or even whether it is called art. The intention to make art is perhaps the most powerful raison d’ętre for something being called art in the first place. [...]

There were some things we could have done better. And there were some things about which people should KNOW better! The most obvious was their lack of a mailing list. [...]
