How To Sell Art

Sell Art Online – Is It For You?

Years ago there was only one way to sell your artwork and that was to pound the pavement. You had to walk from gallery to gallery with your portfolio begging to see the gallery owner and hoping that the owner would like your work enough to display it in his gallery. While many artists still choose to take this approach, more and more artists are embracing the notion of being able to sell art online.

In today’s world, websites are dedicated to the act of displaying an artist’s work and allowing that artist to set the rate he/she wants to receive for their work. Some artists build their own websites, eliminating the need to pay costly display fees and commissions to galleries and art selling sites. Do the gallery owners like this? Probably not, but when you don’t have an expensive budget, why break it when you don’t have to?

More and more often, the control of an artist’s work is kept solely in the hands of the artist themselves. Whereas once an artist had to hope to find a gallery owner or an agent in order to display his art for public consumption, now the internet allows an artist’s work to be seen all over the world. Now anybody can sell art online, whether or not that person is a recognized artist. Heck some people who would not consider themselves artists are selling online and building enormous reputations for themselves!

Do you want to sell art online? You are not alone! Take some time to research your options. There are plenty of ways to spread the word about your work on the Internet. Forums, classified ads, auction sites, sales portals, personal websites, all of these are methods by which a person can make money off of their artwork!

An investigation into the meaning and value of one art item, from a provocateur of the art and music worlds Celebrated musician and artist Bill Drummond turns his attention to the world of modern art. Several years ago he bought a photograph by the Turner Prize–winning artist Richard Long for $20,000. After owning it for some time, he decided to cut it up into 20,000 individual pieces, and then sell them off at a dollar a piece. This book tells the whole story of Drummond’s relationship with modern art, and in particular how this process changed it, in a typically fascinating and discursive way. In his numerous musical incarnations, Drummond has combined global success with a fiercely independent slant. As an artist, his work, over the past 30 years, has examined the cultural landscape through a diverse array of forms.

 100 Years of Magazine Covers


100 Years of Magazine Covers


$45


If you pick up a copy of this week’s People magazine in 30 years time, think how funny it will seem. Our obsession with celebrities’ private lives, weight loss and reality TV shows, will become ridiculous in the light of tomorrow’s trends. Magazines provide us with snapshots of moments in cultural history. Their disposable nature means that they have to sell quickly, and their covers vie for attention on the shelves with images of beauty, sex, shock, humor and celebrity; presenting our fears, desires and aspirations crudely and honestly. When looked at retrospectively, they become fascinating documents that can tell us more about our past self-image than any academic text. 100 Years of Magazine Covers shows the best of these snapshots throughout the past century and into the present, from fascinating historical archives to cutting-edge contemporary design. With images from Vogue, Life, Time, The New Yorker, Mayfair, and more subversive publications such as Oz and Sniffing Glue, this book will appeal to anyone and everyone with an interest in popular culture, history, and graphic design.
