In my last post I talked a bit about Alyson Stanfield and her business ArtBizCoach.com. I have found artbizcoach.com a helpful resource for information on promoting and marketing my work and for developing the written document that most artists dread writing more than any: The Artist Statement. I also refer to Ms. Stanfield’s Visual Artist Kit for information on properly formating my resume, bio, slidelists and other similar documents.

Another very valuable resource I would like to mention is Mr. Clint Watson’s Fine Art Views. Fine Art Views is a free electronic newsletter published almost every day that provides “Straight Talk about Art, Marketing, Inspiration, and Fine Living For Artists, Collectors and Galleries.” I find Mr. Watson’s newsletters to be often informing and sometimes downright revolutionary. They offer practical ideas that if you put into place will garner results, and in the process will raise your general marketing and promotion IQ. I would highly recommend any artist wishing to seriously market and promote their work to subscribe to the newsletter. It’s worth much more than the price: FREE! Check it out at www.fineartviews.com.
