Yes, I’m talking about your artist statement.
Don’t be scared! This is important. And if you don’t want to listen, you can read every word at YourArtistStatement.com.
This pandemic has caused so many people to be introspective. If you're one of them, you might want put this time to good use and work on your statement, regardless of whether you're updating it, rewriting it, or facing it for the first time.
There's no way around it if you want to show your art at a high level. When you want to become part of the critical discourse—to have others consider your work for venues, grants, residencies, and articles—you can't neglect writing your artist statement.
This episode is brought to you by my Art Career Success System. It’s a year-long business training program designed for serious, ambitious artists. When you do the work in the courses, you’ll have a strong foundation on which to build a successful art business.
You will also have an artist statement you can be proud of. That’s because the Art Career Success System is divided into 4 self-contained courses. In the one called Magnetic You, I walk you through a process for not only writing your artist statement, but also writing other marketing material you need and clarifying your visual branding. All of the lessons (about 40 per course) are bite-sized videos (usually under 10 minutes) that you can sneak into pockets of your busy day.
