5 Of The Best Websites For Artistic Advice
This is the art website of artist Lori McNee and I first disovered it on Twitter and was drawn in by the short and thoughtful articles published for artists. She openly shares great information that can help you sell paintings like this great article about corporate art collections and how they can be important art buyers: http://www.finearttips.com/2014/05/why-corporate-art-collecting-is-big-business-for-artists/. She also provides workshops about business and painting.
This art website is the blog of Alison B. Stanfield. She is the author of I'd Rather Be In The Studio, a practical guide to promoting your art career. She offers a range of options for artist who want to receive her consultation. The articles on this site are a combination of Stanfield's and some guest bloggers. They are warm and conversational in tone and they invite dialogue. I like the sense of community that I get from this website and enjoy reading the comments that people contribute.
I love the insight in the articles by Edward Winkleman. Check out this article featured in the image above about the age-old debate of selling art alone vs. with a gallery. I love how Winkleman expresses his opinion while still weighing out the issues at hand. Besides blogging Edward Winkleman on this art website he is an art dealer and owns Winkleman Gallery in New York.
