Art Marketing 101

Have you ever wanted to Sell art online?

Maybe be in a gallery too? Here is how you can get the information you need to really push your art career to the next level.

Art marketing, even the term puts fear into some artists minds. Even for me. And what I’m about to do is giving me the eebbee jeebees all over again! If you’ve been a long time reader on my site, you’ll know that it went live in early 2008.

The main purpose as explained on my “about” page was to funnel web traffic to my online prints gallery in order to sell art online. I’ve learned a lot about the web and my art since then. One thing I found was I truly enjoyed sharing with other artists my techniques. As this site has grown, so has my portfolio of works completed.

So I am thinking, maybe I need to get into a 3rd Gallery. Having been in 2 Galleries for awhile, I’m a bit rusty at this sort of thing called “art marketing” and a

wonderful and frightful idea was born.

Why not share with my readers and explore this together?

Why not walk down this path together and research how I go about approaching a 3rd Venue to show my work in?

Then the questions began to roll in, what if I fail? Really crash and burn? What if the process drags on for months or worse, years? Well….. it might happen! With the economy in shambles, its gonna be a tough row to hoe!

A recent trip to a bustling university town near where I live found out of the 9 Art galleries within the town center, 6 had closed and of the 3 remaining open, 2 were now boutiques selling mostly jewelry, pottery and glassware. Only 1 was selling strictly hanging art.

I’ve always enjoyed a challenge, (my wife says I’m the forever optimist), but lets face it. If we can’t hope for a better tomorrow, it’s not worth getting out of bed today!
