We are all feeling the pinch in this challenging marketplace. Gone are the days of painting good paintings, framing them nicely and relying solely on our galleries for sales. Now is the time of natural selection and survival of the fittest! Artists and galleries must evolve and creatively think ‘outside the frame’

Over the next few weeks I am planning a series of informative articles by working artists and galleries who are coming up with creative marketing ideas for selling artwork in this shaky economy.

Now is YOUR chance to share YOUR creative ideas and tips for selling art. Please tell us what is working for you!
For example:

Submit your guest article here and I will link back to your website, blog or Facebook page. This is a great way to gain exposure and help others too – that’s why I do this!
I have met many interesting and dedicated artistans on Twitter and Facebook who are having real success at selling and marketing their work. I look forward to sharing these informative, upcoming stories.
Meanwhile, here are a few words of encouragement:
“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”
~M. Scott Peck
“Comfort zones are most often expanded through discomfort.”
~Peter McWilliams
“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.”
Marie Curie (French Physicist, twice winner of the Nobel Prize, 1867-1934)
