So, you’re working 80 hours/week on your art career? That’s amazing! THAT’S what a real artist does. Makes all the sacrifices that this implies – including personal sacrifices – to dedicate the huge hours necessary for high levels of success in the arts. Nice job!
If you’ve been doing this workload for decades than chances are you’re also very successful. If you’ve been doing it for just a few years then you’re on your path to success. If you’ve just been doing it for a couple of weeks then keep going, just don’t keeping reading this post: switch to one that will have advice tailored to you.
Everyone wants to be where you’re at, but few have the stamina to be able to do what it takes to get there. Huge hours, lots of stress, lots of dealing with disappointments and challenges, building your brand, learning and growing and learning and growing, often worrying about how to pay the bills early in your career. Our hats are off to you! We know how hard it is because we’ve been there. Thank you.
Are you selling work, but just looking for a new city/space to show in? Feel free to TEXT and leave a message with your full name and city.
We’ll Google you and your website will pop up and hopefully some links to some media as well. Don’t sweat it if you don’t have much media at this point; some day you will, just keep up that fantastic work ethic.
If you look like an amazing human being creating stunning art that fits into what we’re doing then go ahead and TEXT us and we’ll get back to you as soon as we get a free moment to schedule a meeting with you: (509) 270-5804.
And, because you’re a smart artist you also understand that our hands are extremely full keeping our business alive and thriving and focusing on the artists that we have already committed to work with so we won’t be able to reply to all inquiries. Calling you up and explaining to you why you don’t fit right now into our program sounds like a terrible way to spend time for both you and us, doesn’t it?
Thanks again for doing the work, putting in the time. We hope things work out and we can work together. Thank you!
In the meantime, here are some great articles written by a highly successful arts advisor in California with decades upon decades of experience in the art world : Absolutely Essential Artist Tips, What Galleries Look For In Artists, and Common Misconceptions About Galleries. Being a highly-successful professional you’ll recognize much of what he says, but some of it will be new to you. These articles will be especially helpful for those artists who haven’t started a new relationship with a gallery in a while. Have fun!
