Networking for Art

Networking for Art

Thanks for the post from Sylvester Campbell

Being an artist is a lot harder than a lot of people give it credit for. I for one, am on that cusp where I'm actually earning a living from my heart, but I'm not exactly rolling in dough. I feel like if I could just break into the next level, it really make a name for myself and money wouldn't be so tight. I can't stand the thought of having to get another part-time job because I can't sell enough art to scrape by. Recently, I subscribed to Clear4Ginternet so that I could use my laptop during my breaks at the gallery to look up potential art dealers and investors that may be interested in my work. I also subscribed to a few trade magazines to see who's looking, and I really think I'm on the path to networking myself to a career in this business. It's definitely not impossible to make a living as an artist, you just have to be a master marketer as well!
