I echo the above comments regards opportunities for 40+ artists.

I am adventuring in talking to selling galleries and collectors. What I'm finding is there is so little to go on regards understanding what the galleries intentions and expectations are if you are an artist (as opposed to a buyer, there's heaps of advice on that). I do not wish to be (and hopefully will not be) fleeced, so any guidance and advice on the business end of things would be much appreciated. Knowing who to trust is obviously something that can only be acquired but red flags to look out for would be super useful/a guide of standards/what to expect. Maybe even a support page where we can s…

Hello,

I would love support and celebration of older women artists who are returning to art after raising a family,or taking up art following a career change.We bring with us a wisdom and passion for making art and an appreciation of time spent creatively. Exhibiting opportunities and any grants / bursaries available would be great.This year I have spent a lot of money on being an artist ..website,marketing course,mentoring programme, submission fees, materials and framing, possibly recouped 1/3 of this from sales of my work .Any advice on bursaries gratefully received,thank you,Sarah

I’d like to echo your comments. I’m living the dream of my younger self as I pursue my twilight career as an artist. Like Sarah, I’ve had some sales in 2021, but not enough to cover the costs of memberships, courses, materials, and marketing.

I try to draw on my experience in business and apply it to my art practice. Practical advice would be amazing.
