Artists Costs Rising and Sales Dwindling


Here is an excellent in-depth article by Dane Stickney from the Omaha World-Herald on how artists are coping with the economy and adjustments they are making to keep earning a living in the art fair business. It features Denny Davis, a true veteran of art fair world and Hill Brin, not around quite as long as Denny, but also a man who has participated in many an art fair around the country.

You might find interesting artist Rick Martin’s breakdown of expenses for the weekend, and that now many more of you can afford one of Rick’s fine pieces as he has made some smaller works that will fit many pocketbooks.

We send our best wishes to all the artists exhibiting at the Art on the Pointe fair in Village Pointe this weekend.
