Treat your art like it belongs in a museum [part 3]

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.

 My insurance (studio, business) is up to date.Berman

  1. Good advice! I foolishly hadn’t updated my database of sales and finances for 4 months … argh! Remind me not to do that again. It is so much harder to go back and refigure stuff out rather than do it when it is fresh. I had upgraded both my finance and database programs (to system Mac OS X versions)… and been hesitant to trust that I hadn’t lost any data … then it just kept getting harder to do. When I keep up with the records (like I am again now – yippee!), taxes are not very hard at all. And when I want the data for business and marketing planning or for reports, then it is not very hard. Thanks for this info. ~ Diane Clancy
