New Article on ARC

How Artists Can Begin Selling More Artwork is a book review of Eric Rhoads’ book Make More Money Selling Your Art, written by Kara Lysandra Ross, ARC Co-Chair and Chief Operating Officer. Eric Rhoads is an artist and a career entrepreneur, with 30 years’ experience of launching companies and media brands, creating startups, and building businesses. He is known to the ARC viewership as being Chairman of the board of Streamline Publishing, Inc, which produces such publications as Fine Art Connoisseur magazine, PleinAir Magazine, and Streamline Art Video, as well as hosts events such as the Plein Air Convention and Expo and the Figurative Art Convention and Expo.

“Considering that there are so many purely conceptual artists out there somehow hitting it big and making a name for themselves without the technical skills to back it up, one has to conclude that there is another factor at play. Many people think it is all about who you know and what connections you have. Although these things can and do help, a lot of what makes an artist successful financially and enables them to sell their works has a lot to do with how they present themselves and their work. In short how they market themselves and their work to the public and the powers that be. When it comes to being financially successful as an artist, painting, sculpting or drawing amazing works is not enough, because if you don't get your works out there for people to see, no one will know about you. In Eric Rhoads book, Make More Money Selling Your Art, he addresses this concept and how to market oneself as an artist in a systematic way to make it easy for artists to understand how to market themselves and their work.”

ARC Philosophy
https://www.artrenewal.org/Article/Title/the-philosophy-of-arc

The driving philosophy behind the Art Renewal Center is clearly put forward in the essay by ARC founder, Frederick Ross, entitled "Why Realism?"

The essay argues point by point why realism is one of the only effective ways to communicate ideas and emotions across cultures and centuries.

“The visual fine arts of drawing, painting and sculpture are best understood as a language ... a visual language. Very much like spoken and written languages, it was developed and preserved as a means of communication. And very much like language it is successful if communication takes place and unsuccessful if it does not. This simultaneously helps define the term "Fine Art." So fine art is one important way that human beings can communicate. This realization conversely poses the question: Can it be fine art if it does not communicate or does not even attempt to do so? Communication can only occur if the language of the speaker is understood by those who are listening. An absolute necessity for communication is that the language employed has vocabulary and grammar shared by speaker and listener or by writer and reader and therefore logically by painter and viewer. “

Whistler and Pennell: Etching the City
http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/ladylever/exhibitions/whistler-and-pennell/index.aspx

Whistler and Pennell: Etching the City captures the changing landscape of New York and London in the final years of the industrial revolution. Featuring 38 prints from two of the most influential and innovative etchers - James McNeill Whistler (1834-1903) and Joseph Pennell (1857-1926), the exhibition highlights an important period in the history of etching known as the 'Etching Revival'. It explores how both artists championed a declining art medium, and their motivation to create a definitive technique and style.

The exhibition runs from 5/4-10/7/18 at the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Port Sunlight Village, Wirral, CH62 5EQ, UK.

Wanderlust From Caspar David Friedrich to Auguste Renoir

With Rousseau’s call to get “back to nature!” and Goethe’s Sturm und Drang poetry, wandering around 1800 became the expression of a modern awareness of life. As part of a reaction against the rapid social changes that began in the French Revolution, a new form of decelerated self- and world knowledge developed, whose presence can still be felt today.

The works shown in the exhibition, including masterworks by Friedrich, Schinkel, Dahl, Richard Wilson, Courbet, Kramskoi, Renoir, and more, show just how powerful and fruitful the motif of the wanderer was in art throughout the nineteenth century, not only in Germany but in many places, from France and Great Britain to Denmark, Norway and Russia.

The exhibition runs from 5/10 - 9/16/18 at the Alte Nationalgalerie, Bodestrasse, Berlin 10178 Germany.
