This is the painting I did during the first day of the Autumn Arts Trail and Festival. It's the beautiful Indian River in my hometown of Clinton, CT .
Here's another version, done a year or two ago painted from further north along the river. It has since been sold.
Now that the economy is in serious trouble it's going to be harder than ever for art galleries to stay in business. This is going to be especially true of galleries that serve the secondary art market, those are the galleries that most emerging artists start in. These galleries are not the high end galleries selling paintings with price tags of $10,000 and up, with long and established client lists. They are the galleries in small cities and suburbs that supply art to people looking to decorate their homes and offices. This segment of the art buying public is going to feel the economic squeeze and I suspect we'll see sales taper off sharply and that means galleries will be in trouble too. Many galleries are turning into vanity galleries out of necessity, even galleries in major cities like New York. They will be charging artists a fee to be represented and/or rent to have their work displayed. Is this a good idea for artists, is is a good idea for you? This very informative artice from Art Calender will help you make that decision. Let me know what you think.
