Hi there, I want to exhibit at (and hopefully sell through) an art show in the USA. Can anybody advise me on what kind of visa I should obtain for this? I ask as US guidance seems a bit opaque […]
Can anybody recommend any giclee printers please? Thanks. Also how have you decided in the past at what size to make the edition and do you enlarge or reduce the image? Would you sell the original work as well?
Hi there, I hope someone might be able to offer me a bit of advise regarding chilsdren’s book illustration. I’ve been approached by a lady who has writen a children’s book about autism and has interest from publishers, although […]
I recently submitted to an Open Exhibition. When I came to pick the work back up I found I found one of the frames of the pieces had a section damaged so that it was no longer presentable. Like most […]
What do other members think about Giclée prints? Is it wrong to make a Giclée print of 25 then call it a limited edition for what is essentially a commercial inkjet process? Does it undermine the artists’ who use traditional […]

As an amateur freelance artist I am in need of an average pricing table for different kinds of services and clients and for UK standards. Is there such a thing that i can find on the Internet or this website? Thank you
Etsy for fine art – naff or not? I had a conversation with a non-artist recently who said she had the impression that a platform like Etsy was “a bit naff” for fine artists. I get it… but on […]
