The Vanity Gallery is a new page on my website.
I've extracted all the information relating to Vanity Galleries from my Alternative Options for Exhibitions page and created a page which is entirely focused on the characteristics and risks associated with Vanity Galleries.
The April 2016 edition of 'The Artist' Magazine contains my article which provides a useful summary of the various different options for How to afford to exhibit your art and keep the costs down! Plus how to maximise your income, minimise your costs and avoid nasty surprises.
You can read more about the topics covered by the article in this blog post on Making A Mark.
You can also find more in-depth information about selling and exhibiting your art in the Selling Art Section of this website. Topics include:
Next month the article is all about how to get your work online - and then there's six more articles in the "Cost effective ideas for artists" series after that.
The latest edition of The Artist is in the shops now (priced £3.99) and is also available via subscription (and digital download)
UPDATE: Alternative Options for Exhibitions
Artists have been using Pop Up Spaces for some years to hold exhibitions of their art and/or run art galleries in unused commercial spaces that are available for short periods.
However what you need to do and how you get a pop up space is still a mystery to many artists.
I've expanded the Alternative Options for Exhibitions page devoted to different places to exhibit to include a NEW section on The Pop Up Show / Art Gallery
This summarises why artists use them and what you need to know and get to develop a pop up space for art.
It also includes links to useful online resources in terms of guides and articles and further advice. These links include:
If you've written a blog post about your experience of running a popup art show do drop me line via comments and I'll feature it in the reference section for this topic. It's good to share!
This is about TWO new pages in the Sell Art section of my Art Business Info. for Artists website.
The first is A Guide to Art Dealers and Galleries. It covers:
The second NEW PAGE published yesterday is about Alternative Exhibition Options. It covers:
I'll be adding more content to the Art Market/Fair and due diligence sections in the near future - but thought people like to see the section on Vanity Galleries now.
