Last week's Art Marketing Action newsletter was accompanied by two blog posts on how to treat your art like it belongs in a museum: Part 1 and Part 2. Today's post, like this week's newsletter, is a continuation of that.
I have good-quality photographs of all my works. While I might have photos of lesser quality, I share only photographs of the highest quality with the public and other art professionals.
I keep copies of the photos in a separate location so I can use them if, heaven forbid, I need to file an insurance claim.
I have written records to back up my insurance claims. My art database is consistently updated and sales are carefully tracked.
Want to know more about documenting your art? Tune into the FREE teleseminar with Harriete Estel Berman on Tuesday, July 10 at 6 p.m. Mountain Time. All you have to do is register.
