Poetry & Music 

Had to start with this song, since Janelle’s MidPoint program was talking about drugs!

And then we had to play some new Andrew Bird ~



We made our goal thanks to our wonderful listeners. xoxoxoxoxo

Art/Work – Everything You Need to Know…Art Career (for Art in Your Ear)

The definitive, must-have guide to pursuing an art career—the fully revised and updated edition of Art/Work, now in its fourteenth printing, shares the tools artists of all levels need to make it in this highly competitive field.

Originally published in 2009, Art/Work was the first practical guide to address how artists can navigate the crucial business and legal aspects of a fine art career. But the rules have changed since then, due to the proliferation of social media, increasing sophistication of online platforms, and ever more affordable digital technology. Artists have never had to work so hard to distinguish themselves—including by making savvy decisions and forging their own paths. Now Heather Bhandari, with over fifteen years of experience as a director of the popular Chelsea gallery Mixed Greens, and Jonathan Melber, a former arts/entertainment lawyer and director of an art e-commerce startup, advise a new generation of artists on how to make it in the art world.

In this revised and  2017 updated edition, Bhandari and Melber show artists how to tackle a host of new challenges. How do you diversify income streams to sustain a healthy art practice? How can you find an alternative to the gallery system? How do you review a license agreement? What are digital marketing best practices? Also included are new quotes from over thirty arts professionals, updated commission legal templates, organizational tips, tax information, and advice for artists who don’t make objects. An important resource for gallerists, dealers, art consultants, artist-oriented organizations, and artists alike, Art/Work is the resource that all creative entrepreneurs in the art world turn to for advice.

Extraordinary Interpretations ~ book on Florida Self-Taught Artists for Art in Your Ear

This is a gorgeous book, diving into some of the talent in our state. Here’s the info:

“A visual feast. Like the Highwaymen, Barnhill created his own version of the landscape, based on the real environment yet in a fantastic otherworldly palette.”–Rick Kilby, author of Finding the Fountain of Youth: Ponce de León and Florida’s Magical Waters

“These dramatic hand-painted photographs capture old Florida with color and light.”–Lu Vickers, coauthor of Remembering Paradise Park: Tourism and Segregation at Silver Springs

“Takes us on a historical voyage while we visit Florida landscapes as seen through Barnhill’s lens.”–Larry Roberts, author of Florida’s Golden Age of Souvenirs, 1890-1930

In the age of railroads and steamships, of frontier Florida and the tourism boom of the early 1900s, photographer E. G. Barnhill set up shop in the young city of St. Petersburg. He pioneered a popular new type of tourist art, colorizing black-and-white snapshots taken by himself and his customers. He sold many of his hand-colored photographs as postcards or home décor.

Barnhill applied watercolors to black-and-white prints according to his own sense of light and palette and his interpretation of consumer demand. Visitors wanted one-of-a-kind works of art to help them remember the experience of Florida. Unlike other colorists of the time whose landscapes were airbrushed to appear dreamy and ethereal, Barnhill captured the state’s clear, brisk colors with richness and intensity. He pushed aside conventions by using matte instead of glossy print paper to soak up colors better, and with radical experiments in gold toning and uranium dyes, which created unearthly hues.

Filled with vibrant images of Barnhill’s unique creations, precursors to the popular landscape art of the Highwaymen and others, this book showcases a little-known artist whose inventive techniques–particularly his uranium-dye coloring–merit a place in the story of American photography. A fascinating mix of photographic realism and individual artistic vision, his work reveals both the Florida that was and the Florida that tourists wanted to believe in.

Gary Monroe, professor of fine arts and photography at Daytona State College, is the author of numerous books, including Mary Ann Carroll: First Lady of the Highwaymen, Silver Springs: The Underwater Photography of Bruce Mozert, and The Highwaymen: Florida’s African-American Landscape Painters.

Day Dreamer desk sign for Art in Your Ear
Share this:

It’s true, isn’t it. We all have dreams, and sometimes when we are sitting at our desk we have to pretend we aren’t thinking about [ fill in the blank ].

It’s okay! Put this on your desk, or next to your bed, or anywhere, and you won’t have to pretend anymore! Or maybe there is a day dreamer in your life who needs it…
