I’ve created a quick survey of artists to learn a bit about:
– Is selling art how you make a living?
– How much do you sell online compared to in person/at galleries?
– How much of your art sells for less than $500 (£350)? For less than $100 (£70)?
If you’re an artist I would love it if you could take a few seconds to complete the survey here. You don’t need to be a full time artist – if you’ve ever sold a piece of art then I’d love to get your input. I’ll post the results (which are anonymous) here after a week or so. I’m really just curious – the world of professional artists is rather opaque to us outsiders. I’d love to get an idea of what a typical sale looks like.
I’ll also be digging more into where artists sell their work (and where they prefer to sell their work) and check out gallery commissions and what kinds of marketing artists do.
