Alyson Stanfield on March 16, 2009 poster an article called Art Marketing Action: Return To Your Art
“Artists who are true to themselves do not make art for the marketplace, but for themselves–to start a dialogue with their viewers, their fans, and the world. They make art because they have something to say that is best said not with words, but through a creative act. They make art because they have to. The marketing stuff can come later.”
She is so right. I love what she says. Check out the entire post.
