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 Best Art Business Books for Artists is the new home for information from another site I developed with the same name. It's a work in progress at present but now has enough content to make it worth highlighting and my other site is about to be closed down.
Initial categories cover:
Interestingly most of the books on the new page are EITHER new OR new editions of books that have been around for a while.
So much has changed in the past few years. In particular the emphasis on business online is now much more important.
I'm finding that I really need to look long and hard at content as I do the transfer - and I'm needing to buy new editions of books I've loved in the past.
Plus I know than a few authors have recognised the need to update and have new editions in the pipeline.
For example, a couple of days ago I was contacted by Caroll Michels - author of How to Survive and Prosper as an Artist (a book I really rate!) - about the NEW edition of her book which is published later this month. This has got a LOT of new content to reflect the changes in the workings of the art market and the new challenges for all artists - even established ones. For example:
So I hope you'll join me in my investigation of what's currently on offer and the best books about the art business for artists which offer both great content and good value for money!
There's a lot more to come and this page will be continuously updated over the next few months - and years!
