Art Vancouver, Hurry Deadline Approaching!

By January 29, 2018

4th Annual Art Vancouver Art Fair for Artists in Canada

In 2015 Artists in Canada decided to get out from behind the computer and cyberspace of the Internet and reach out to the serious emerging artist. It's not everyone that can stand the profession of an independent artist. Some days you feel like your feet never touch the ground and then there are days you wish you had a day job. There isn't much coasting time as an artist. You tend to work from grants and funding contracts, residencies, workshops, studio sales, commissions and if you are lucky you are part of an art gallery or galleries that promote and sell your art. These are rare occurances early in a career – as galleries do more sales on line these days – you can't just waltz into a gallery with your portfolio. Many galleries have reduced hours for public viewing of commercial shows, with art being presold online. This leaves bricks and mortar art galleries questioning why they have a building at all. When I travel to different cities, it personally frustrates me that galleries are quite often closed more than they are open. Not the same experience looking at art online.

If you are under 30 you better get your art life together, because by the time you are 40 you won't qualify for most grants and funding. Even the Sobey Art Awards, now $100,000 for the top prize, is for 40 and under. You need to make your mark early in your career, not so good for late starters or those who wait till they finish a career with a pension, then strike out as a full time artist. That doesn't mean you won't make it, but galleries take a hard look at you and your work before picking you up. Do they want to invest a lot of time in someone that will have a relative short career?

-----------------

Book your booth today!

If you are in Vancouver between April 19–23 make sure you stop in at Art Vancouver. If you are able to purchase a booth space, even share a space with a fellow artist, do it. As an artist you will need to invest in these types of opportunities to connect to the right people and galleries.

----------------

As an emerging artist you will live from contract to contract or the odd commission, so remember to charge enough to sustain yourself. Art materials, food, overhead, travel, health insurance, disability insurance, life insurance, savings and a pension. Consider all these costs into doing those projects. Yes, you can have a Pension Plan as an independent artist. It all sounds a bit over whelming as you just want to make a living. You need to think differently if you are going to survive as an artist.

See PENSION PLAN DETAILS.

This week my HOROSCOPE read:

Talent creates opportunity. Opportunity creates talent. Neither are crutial to success. DESIRE IS THE MAGIC. Desire will bring you everything you need: talent, opportunity and the work ethic to keep going until you get there.

It's a bit like a fortune cookie wisdom, but has some merit. Work smarter, not harder and join Artists in Canada, the best deal for Canadian artists. Listing is free, membership is inexpensive.

I will talk more about this at Art Vancouver, drop by our booth and say hi.

Paul Constable, Director
