Tips for Artists to Avoid Getting Ripped Off

Tips for Artists to Avoid Getting Ripped Off

Postby CAP » Sun Aug 30, 2015 3:11 pm

Some fairly elementary points offered in this article, but worth going through all the same.

1) Deal with interested parties in person not online.
2) Read the fine print - look for the loop holes - as the uncredited Artbusiness writer emphasises, often enticing offers do not initially mention the fact that the artist will have to pay for any exposure supposedly on offer. This goes for art fairs and art competitions as well.
3) One of the downsides to the soaring art market is the number and variety of hustlers getting in on the act - middlemen serving both ends second.
