I just returned from Taos, NM looking for gallery representation. Although the feedback was mostly positive, I did not end up in one. While talking to one gallery owner, he said to me, " You know how to get your work seen when looking for a gallery? You just take your portfolio in, put it on their desk, and say "I'd like for you to take a look at my portfolio. I am looking for gallery representation" " That's it. He said not to do phone calls or emails and that sometimes galleries have those listed just to weed out the non- professionals. To me this seemed rather rude and demanding. But it made me think that maybe that is what it takes. Maybe not at all places though. I personally like to at least do some home work on the galleries online before I go out. I don't want to drop my photography portfolio down on the desk of a gallery owner that only does painting and sculptures. That would be a waste of time for both of us. So.. for all that are reading this, what technique have you used successfully to get your work into a gallery. I am of course talking real gallery, not a coffee shop that says, "Sure you can hang your work in here if you like. We need something new on the walls anyway."
VERY interesting article about creativity in the U.S.
What's going on here? IQ's going up and CQ's going down. Are we becoming the robot sheep society that the gov't and schooling system has been striving for? A bunch of perfect little employees plugged into the system. Food for thought here.
Just got back from a very short trip to Taos, NM. Stayed at the American Artists Gallery House Bed and Breakfast Inn. I highly recommend this place. The owners are awesome and the breakfast amazing. Went looking for gallery representation for my photos. I had some good responses but not much interest in Taos for photography right now. However, I did get some great encouragement from one gallery owner that said my work would do well there. But he only uses local artists. He told me to come back in once I move there. Hmmmm. Also went whitewater rafting. Perfect weekend with my wife! George the Peacock was a bit disturbing though.

Welcome to the new okcArtists blog. I hope everyone had a great and safe Independence Day weekend. I am new to blogging so this will be at first, where to find out what's going on around okcArtists.com.
okcArtists just started up a couple of months ago and is already growing and getting traffic. We are here to give you the artist an affordable way to help drive traffic to your website or page. We know that we are not the only place to list but we are aiming to be the best, most productive, most active list in the OKC area. We want to be a true art community.That's why okcArtists is also on Facebook and Townsphere. These are two great places to really interact with us. Any artist that lists on okcA is always posted on these two pages also. We really try to spread the word about our artists. We even give you free listing time for referrals of your artist friends.
We are looking for a "Draw/Sketch" artist and a "Lessons" artist so those two pages are no longer empty. We are offering a SWEET deal to the first to list in those categories. You might note that there are some specials going on here while we are still in the infancy stage.
If you have an event coming up that you'd like the world to know about, send me the info here. We want okcArtists.com to be the go to place to find out about art in the metro.
