about art for artists
My Art Exhibition Checklist - for Artists entering juried and open art exhibitions are now published in an enhanced format - as a NEW PAGE - on my Art Business Info. for Artists website.
You can find it in the SELL ART section.
If you're new to submitting artwork to juried exhibitions you tend to find out all the things you "need to know" the hard way - through error and omission!
Friends will provide their own tips - but very few have ever written down their own checklists.
Many years ago I started to enter my artworks for juried art exhibitions.
Back in February 2013 I decided to write down my own art exhibition checklist and publish it as a blog post - mainly because every time I did a submission I used to forget one vital step! Guess what? I'd had yet another incident of forgetting to do something crucial!
The things I have forgotten to do have included:
There will be another checklist - for art exhibition organisers - coming along in the near future.
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)
I've created a new section on this website devoted to how to frame and hang art.
It provides a home for information, advice and tips and techniques - and links to more of the same - about different aspects of matting, framing and hanging artwork - including:
To date it has two sub-pages:
I've also been writing quite a lot on my main blog about framing art in recent months.
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.
