Is Your Art Priced Correctly?

"I recently spoke with a fine artist who indicated that he wasn’t going to sell his art through galleries any more, and so he planned to reduce the retail price of his work by fifty percent. He wanted to sell his art directly to the customer, online and also at art fairs and festivals – but he had made a crucial mistake."

How Smart Marketing Boosted My Art Business

"At 61, I’m starting over with a new business that fulfills a lifelong dream of making my living with my artwork. I was raised in a home business environment, so I’ve always been aware of the possibilities of business, emulating my father’s creative vision for making a business out of what no one else values."

Twitter Hashtags Best Practices for Artists

Why do hashtags matter, and why should artists use them? Guest blogger Andrei Taraschuk explains.

A Closer Look at the ArtPlace Summit: "How will the arts help achieve community change?"

Attendees in the "Creating Art in & for Place: Methods for Locale-Minded Curation" breakout session quickly agreed that art and culture are not a band aid for wider community issues – they are tools to be used as part of a holistic place-based strategy. "Our approach has been to start with community needs first, and then look at how and in what ways the arts can be a tool that responds to those needs," one attendee said.
