Let's Have an Ar(t)gument: Should you reveal mistakes to potential art buyers?

by Brian Sherwin on 4/29/2015 8:02:43 AM
15 Comments

'Completed' doesn't always translate to 'good' (you should know what 'good' is in your studio). You don't have to prove to us you are a prolific artist... focus on your best work! You WILL make mistakes in your studio... but that doesn't mean you have to dwell on them. You certainly should not brand yourself with mistakes. [...]

Bad Internet Advice: Getting Into Galleries

by Mark Edward Adams on 4/27/2015 8:33:02 AM
31 Comments

So why is there so much bad advice on the internet about getting into galleries? I do not think most writers are trying to mislead artists. I think these articles are typically not written by working artists. It is based upon theory and stories they have heard from people over the years rather than the experience of actually approaching dozens of galleries. The best advice comes from people who have walked down the same road. [...]

Very lastly, have fun and Don't Stay on Pinterest All Day! You have to paint, or do whatever it is that you do, so you can post it on your website and pin it on Pinterest so people will see it, love it, and repin it, thus driving hoards of potential collectors back to your website. Ok. Not, hoards, but you only need one person to like a painting enough to buy it, right? It could be that one person who found you on Pinterest. [...]

Get to Know a Framer

by Carolyn Henderson on 4/20/2015 8:58:06 AM
7 Comments

As long as there are paintings and drawings, there will be a need for frames, if for no other reason than to protect the artwork. What one hopes is that, in some halcyon day in the future, artists will not be the primary persons responsible for providing those frames. Until that day, however, artists do whatever they can to protect themselves from incurring extra costs, so that they can make decent money for creating beautiful work, work that the average, non-highly-skilled-artist person simply can’t create.

FASO Featured Artists: Artist Victoria Pinney

by Carrie Turner on 4/17/2015 11:00:43 AM
Comment on this

Artist Victoria Pinney's abstract paintings offer a powerful exploration of color, texture and time. Her work generally involves multiple layers that mesh together based on the direction of her visual journey. Victoria views her work as a study of time -- each layer represents a decision marked by a sense of history. The past is revealed through erosion of the present. [...]

Is Art Lost in the Fog of Elitism?

by Sharon Griffes Tarr on 4/17/2015 10:10:53 AM
15 Comments

Life is far different today in many countries around the world than in previous centuries. For instance, here in the United States, almost everyone has access to a formal education, to transportation, to mass media, etc. Our people as a whole enjoy an intellectual status that has not been known since the beginning of time. And yet, many people such as the young married woman I mentioned earlier, still say, “I know nothing about art”. Isn’t it time we change that? [...]

This is why it’s so important we learn how to forgive ourselves for our mistakes. I use the saying, “Turn the page on yesterday and open a new one today.” Don’t continue to beat up on yourself. Live life as fully as possible and start every day with a clear heart and bright eyes. Leave the Mulligans to the golfers. [...]

FASO Featured Artists: Artist Ted Butler

by Carrie Turner on 4/15/2015 7:03:06 AM
Comment on this

Artist Ted Butler is dedicated to abstract painting. Ted has always been fascinated by the spontaneity, problems to be solved, and sense of freedom that abstract art provides. He firmly believes that abstract art visually represents the fact that there are no guarantees in life -- difficulties will not always be successfully dealt with. Informed Collector stated the following about Ted's abstract paintings: "Complex abstract work inspiring the mind to sink deeper into the dance between mystery and memory." [...]

If You Master This, Your Art Will Improve

by John P. Weiss on 4/14/2015 8:12:37 AM

Keep it simple. Cut out the non-essential. Get up earlier, so your personal time won't compete with family time. Don't be afraid to say no to people who want to spend your time for you. Be gracious about it, but say no. Do hard things. It won't always be easy but you can do it. And when you do, your art will improve considerably. [...]
