ARTNADO Invites Local Art Associations And Art-Related Non-Profits To Receive FREE Booth Space- Plus New Artist Discounts

Artistic Synergy Inc., through it’s inaugural show ARTNADO, has established two main goals. The first is to provide a robust indoor environment designed to showcase the artists and their work in ways that cannot be accomplished with the traditional outdoor tent shows. The second is to help promote the arts in Southeast Florida.  The Rickie Report shares the details for Art Associations and Art-Related Non-Profits Organizations to receive FREE 10 x 10 booth spaces. Individual artists who are part of any Non-Profit or Art Association taking booth space will be entitled to a discount on their OWN booth! Artists who have taken part in any Art Marketing Seminar with Rickie Leiter are also eligible for a discount on their own booth space!  Don’t miss  the August 1st cut off for a 15% general discount on other booth spaces! More details will follow about the Student Art Contest.  We remind our readers that ARTNADO and Artistic Synergy Inc. is a different entity from Art Synergy/Art Palm Beach.

 

 

 

artnado-ad-1-30-15

 

 

 Jack Busa, Chief Creative Executive, is announcing a gift of FREE 10×10 space for all area Art Associations and Art related Non-Profits.  He tells The Rickie Report, “This will enable your organization to inform the public about what you do, in addition to offering membership opportunities and displaying examples of past and current events. Your members will be able to display but not sell their work from your space. Because ARTNADO is already offering the lowest price per square foot for juried art shows, we understand that artists are concerned about their expenses. Therefore, any member of an organization that takes advantage of this offer, will be given a 10% rebate on the price of the exhibition space they choose to display and sell their art.”

 

Any artists who has taken part in an Art Marketing Seminar involving Rickie Leiter, Publisher of The Rickie Report will be eligible for a 15% rebate on individual booth space.  Fill out the ZAPP and then send a separate email to Artistic Synergy Inc telling them you have been a participant.

 

Jack explains, “Since all applications need to be submitted through ZAPP there is no provisions for a two-tier pricing structure. Hence a refund check will be issued ARTNADO’s  move-in date on November 13th.”

 

This offer, when combined with the options of either a 10×10, 10×20 and even a 20×20 “personal gallery” exhibition area, offers an unprecedented exposure for most of the area’s artist.

 

UPCOMING STUDENT ART CONTEST

 

 In addition, a Student Art Contest will be formally announced soon. If you know  any young artists who would like to get an early start, the information is available on our website artisticsynergy.org.

 

 

ARTNADO is looking for partners to be Drop-Off Centers for Student Artwork around the County.  Please email or call to make arrangements.  You will be included in future advertising, marketing and promotions!

 

 For more information send an e-mail to artisticsynergy@mail.com requesting a space and  you will be called to confirm the details.

If you have any questions, please call  561-557-8741 and ask to speak directly to Jack Busa.

The Artist/Gallery Relationship

The relationship between an artist and gallery is a significant one. The Rickie Report hears from both entities, sharing concerns and questions about behavior and standards.  We look at the nuances that may not be spelled out in a contract and more in this article.  This includes 2D , 3D and wearable art.

 

 

The Artist/Gallery Relationship

 

 

In this article, when we speak of “galleries”, the reader should understand the term to include consignment galleries, vanity galleries, cooperative galleries and traditional galleries.  This also includes outdoor or indoor shows…basically, any place you are exhibiting your artistry.

 

Notification of Your Acceptance

Great news!  

Your artwork has been accepted to be in an exhibit or show!  

Now what?

 

Read every word and every page before you sign a contract!

 

 

  • Do you understand the contract?

 

  • If you have a question, has the issuer of the contract been helpful in explaining your concerns?

 

  • Can you meet the requirements of the contract?

 

  • Is there something you would like to change in the contract?

 

  • Is this acceptable to the issuer?

 

  • If you cannot meet the requirements, it is your obligation to discuss the issues with the gallery or show where your work will be exhibited!

 

  • Mark down important dates: drop off of artwork, reception and pick up of unsold work and date of expected payment for sold work.

 

  • If you decide NOT to sign the contract, it is up to you to inform the gallery or show manager!  Being polite and considerate goes a long way…you never know when you may encounter the same players in the art world again.

 

I’ve Signed A Contract!

What is the first thing you need to do?

 

  • Employ “Rickie’s Two Foot Rule”!  Share your good news with anyone who comes within 2 feet of you!  This is NOT a time to “sell” but to “celebrate”! Share your passion of creativity with everyone!  

 

  • Get your publicity and marketing ducks in a row!  Send out press releases to print and email resources ( including The Rickie Report) – DO NOT WAIT until a few weeks before your public reception, grand opening or event to take place.

 

  • Share your good news in your social media circles and once you have the date (see above), ask THEM to share it with their friends!

 

  • Has the gallery provided postcards marketing the exhibit or show?

 

  • Send them out to your client list, giving them plenty of notice so they can attend!  This is an important part of the marketing process. The gallery is counting on you to follow through!  

 

  • Another thought about sending out postcards: a personal note goes a long way.  Again, it is about the relationship between you and your clients. It is not just about the sale!

 

 

Enjoy The Show

 

Before the exhibit or show opens, touch base with the manager.  What are the gallery’s expectations of the artists during the event?

 

  • Show up on time!

 

  • What is the preferred mode of dress?

 

  • Can you bring a guest?

 

  • Is there a cover charge for guests and other attendees?

 

  • Be respectful of the other attendees.  Not everyone is here to see your work. ( We know, this sounds harsh, but we’re trying to be realistic and helpful).

 

  • Are you expected to make a presentation about your work?  How long will you speak? When will this take place within the reception time frame?

 

  • Is it OK to hand out business cards?  

 

  • Can you have your own sign-in book?

 

  • If you are supposed to bring a beverage or snack to share, check to see what the gallery prefers ( if they always provide a cheese tray, perhaps choosing a different pick-up refreshment is best; have they requested wine or only soft-drinks?)

 

  • How long are you expected to stay?

 

  • Different types of galleries call for you knowing information beyond your own work. Have you done your homework and learned a bit about the other exhibitors’ artistry?

 

  • If someone asks a question and you are unsure of the answer, KNOW who to ask!

 

  • Do we need to tell you? NEVER speak poorly of another piece of artwork! Everyone has different taste in food, fashion and artwork!

 

The Party’s Over And So Is The Exhibit

  • Be prompt when picking up your artwork.  

 

  • Bring a copy of your list of work dropped off with prices.

 

  • If you have a problem in picking up your work at the specified time, contact the gallery manager immediately.

 

  • Send a thank you note to the gallery and manager.  Personal relationship, remember?

 

My Work Sold!  Now What?

 

  • The contract should specify when you will be paid and how much the gallery will keep as commission.

 

  • Be aware of the date you should expect payment and stay in touch with the gallery manager.

 

  • Some galleries cut checks immediately and others only monthly.

 

  • Does the contract specify if the gallery will tell you who the customer is? 

 

 

  • When a non-profit organization asks you for a donation of your artwork, does the contract specify that you will be told who the client is who purchased your work?  The Rickie Report suggests you inquire about this BEFORE signing the contract and possibly adding it in, if it is not mentioned.  It is gracious of you to donate and important for YOUR marketing and art business to know who to add to your client list.

 

 

In the very least, the exhibition or show should be added immediately to your website.

 

 

You forgot to pick up your work

for over a month… Now what?

 

  • Go back and read the contract.
  • Some galleries will charge storage fees. Be prepared to pay.  Remember – they have been caretakers of your work.
  • Some galleries will take possession of your work.  They may choose to be benevolent and return your work or they may, according to the contract, sell your work to benefit a charity.

 

Life Is A Learning Experience

 

Exhibiting at a gallery or show is a wonderful opportunity for you to share your creativity with the world!  The Rickie Report hopes that these helpful hints make your experiences easier and more productive.

 

Stay tuned for more marketing strategies in The Rickie Report!

I want to get below the surface of things when I make art.
I’m after something essential – something that moves me.
It all comes from life experience and my understanding of art, past and present. I want to communicate my experience and explore what is possible.
“Creativity takes courage”, said Matisse.
Creativity can take many forms. I am the kind of artist who is willing to work in many ways. I feel the potential of human expression is boundless. It’s all a matter of taking a risk.

Photography by Faten Safieddine

 

 

 

Internationally renown artist Faten Safieddine will show her short film “La Chrysalide” and talk about her work. This lecture is free and open to the public. In a dreamlike style, this film shows the struggle of women to extricate themselves from the yoke of the cultural and social conditioning and achieve freedom and fullness.

 

 

 

 

Born in Lebanon, Ms. Safieddine lives and works in Marrakesh and Paris. She was educated at the Sorbonne and the Université d’Abidjan and has shown her work throughout the Middle East, France and Canada.

 

Her photographic work explores the themes of the shadows, reflections and transparencies and has been the subject of several international exhibitions.  In addition to working as a photographer and film maker, Ms Safieddine is a journalist, art critic and writer focusing on culture and history. In 1988 the Metropolitan Museum of Art commissioned her to create a documentary on the restoration of the Minbar in the Grand Mosque of Koutoubia. The documentary received the Image d’Or prize in France.
