My Art Is in a Show in FRANCE!

 

Here's how it happened: I saw an online request for postcard-sized art for an exhibit in a restaurant in Rouen, France (actually in a nearby town with a long name). OK, the restaurant is in a JAIL, the exhibit organizer said, but what the heck. Hopefully, it's in a former jail. Regardless, how else am I going to get myself in an art show in FRANCE... for free....

Suddenly, my art career seems to be booming... I'm in an exhibit that runs through August 20, when the closing reception will be held (see Upcoming Events, in the right-hand column). Then, I'll be in another exhibit opening on September 9 and running through the end of the month, followed by another one opening on October 4 for the month of October. Life is good!

Be BOTH an Outrageous Artist AND a Sophisticated Successful One

Posted by lindasummersposey on August 15, 2010 at 6:03 AM Comments comments (0)

Artists are free spirits, weirdos or complete nutcases, depending on who you talk to. And we’re proud of it. We’re the outrageous innovators, breaking patterns in the interest of freedom, full self-expression and the First Amendment. Anything resembling stick-in-the-mud regimentation makes us break out in a cold sweat. 

 

When you’re in your studio creating, give that free spirit free rein. Otherwise, you’ll ne...

ACTing Is Where the Action Is

Posted by lindasummersposey on August 4, 2010 at 2:45 AM Comments comments (3)

If you want an art CAREER, as opposed to an art hobby, you need people who love your art enough to buy it. Before these people can buy your art, they have to know it – and you – exist. You can paint 24/7 to cultivate your talent; you can meditate every day to tap into your muse. But for attracting actual paying customers, I haven't thought of a method that doesn't involve taking action in the real world outside...
