The Artists Circle

During this time of uncertainty and isolation, it’s important that artists gather.

That’s why I’m inviting you to join me in an Artists Circle call on Saturday, May 9th at 5:00 pm Greenwich Meantime.

What is an Artists Circle?

It’s a powerful coming together of community, open to all artists, everywhere.

There’s no prerequisites! You don’t have to be enrolled in my course or pay any money. You don’t have to have an exhibition record. In fact, it doesn’t matter if you’re an established artist or an aspiring artist. This is about you — about us — coming together as artists.

So bring your questions. About being an artist. About your practice. About the art business. Bring your ideas. Listen to other artists from around the world and learn how they’re coping.

Next call: TBA

If you have a question, do call in and ask Crista yourself.

If you can’t make the call, write your question in the comment field below (scroll to the bottom of the page).

– All questions should be posted at least 3 hours before the call to give Crista time to prepare. Questions posted later risk not being answered.
– Please do not post a question you intend to ask on the call.
– Please do not use this page to respond to other artists’ questions.
– If you cannot find your local time in Greenwich Meantime, Google is your friend!

    I am a painter….but I don’t know how to increase the painting…because I am have lack of marketing and this is the problem….

  2. Leanne Poellinger

    I am trying to build awareness for my art business. There are so many magazines, websites and galleries asking for art submittals for potential online or other postings, but they charge a fee. Should we be trying this (hard to justify spending $ when little or none is coming in yet).

  3. Denise Araripe

    Hi Crista,
    I had an exhibition, as an artist invited to open a commercial gallery, in a prestigious space in Rio de Janeiro on April 14, but on March 13 I went into confinement and canceled the exhibition. Now the uncertainty of customs and finance that plagues the world, makes me question my role as an artist in these new times that we will enter … Does this type of questioning seem reasonable to you? Can you tell me if other artists are going through the same dilemma? I’d love your opinion …
    Thanks for the opportunity,
    Best

    Hello, Crista, thank you for your mail. One day I will join your circle but the fees is rather high. Anyway, I know you’re genuinely a great artist, for only artist of a high caliber could write like you do. Nature, through this Corona epidemic seems to be hinting to us to contract to home. To move closer to our inner home & reflect. To reduce the outer activity and increase the inner one. I say, its time to change and take heed and be more closer to Nature. I think you’re a natural poet and just might agree with me, if not , that too is OK. take care. gurinder

    Hi Crista, first of all You are amazing. I am a self taught artist, would like to have communication with a circle of artists. Would like a guidance and to for my Art to get noticed on social media.

  8. Nova Clite

    Hi Crista, what are the pros and cons for naming your studio something other than your actual name. I’ve been calling my working studio “Studio Nova”, which has a bit of my name in it (Nova, not studio). I’m the only one in “Studio Nova”, but my studio is one of 20 in a shared space with it’s own name and marketing. Thank you for putting together this call and your great course!

    I’m a beginner painter and have painted about 10 paintings of my own. How can I get started in selling my art work ? And how do I start an online web page or do I sell by posting ads on FB ? And how do I come up with an artist name.

    Dear Crista,I have missed the beginning Im 71 this month, have had a long career (43 years) selling watercolors and teaching others. Now, Im trying to reinvent myself, my inventory and my creative endeavors. Any suggestions? I have some artwork that might be good in an art dedicated book.

  14. Clyde Finlay

    I’m not looking for artfairs because I’m retired. The costs are too high? But I’m looking for art exhibitions for 2021/2022, so I may prepare for a holiday and an exhibition. Are there sponsors and grants ou there . Are there any ideas for this international artist? Great to connect with you Crista and this group. Sorry I’m not available today. Cheers!
