Useful Tools for Marketing Your Art

| No Comments

In last night's meeting, we talked about different ways artists can market their art to a wide audience. Some of the more established artists mentioned two useful books for art marketing.

They are:

Art Marketing 101, by Constance Smith

and

Self Promotion for the Creative Person, by Lee Silber

Both have been useful resources for the artists.

My own favourite is Studio Handbook for Working Artists: A Survival Manual, by Ted Godwin. It's a book that addresses many studio issues that a starting artist won't have experience with, and won't be taught in art school.

Little City Farm is a unique urban homestead and eco bed & breakfast, established in 2007 by Greg Roberts and Karin Kliewer, right in the heart of the Breithaupt-Mount Hope neighbourhood. During the Central Art Walk & Studio Tour stop by to see their homestead! Enjoy a cup of freshly brewed herbal tea from the garden, purchase wood-fired baked treats from their outdoor cob oven (organic breads and vegan treats), and learn more about the ongoing workshops they offer related to sustainable city living.

"I am eye. I am a mechanical eye. I, a machine, am showing you a world, the likes of which only I can see." -- Dziga Vertov

I often think of this quotation when I am behind the camera. For me, my camera is a key to a portal through which I can step when using the mechanical eye. A rusting gas pump seen through the lens transports me to a WWII airfield during the Battle of Britain--I can hear the engines and see and smell the smoke from a damaged Spitfire as it spirals to earth. I can see a bare and dusty foot and be with Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. I can hear the slap of a paddle wheeler and smell that unmistakable smell of the muddy Mississippi.

My photography gives me great pleasure and freedom. I hope my work will evoke in you the smell, taste and feel of other times and places.
