promote and cherry pick recent grads, no reason you couldn't give it a go. Perhaps even consulting /agent where you get a cut - but no show room. I would be more than happy to send some of my grads your way
Possibly. One of the difficulties in selling the work of emerging artists is that until they are "established" it is difficult to command prices high enough to meet the overhead, etc. You have to sell a lot of $500 paintings to start breaking even once you pay the artists, the landlord, the utility companies, etc. And once an artist begins to attract notice, more established galleries will start trying to cherry-pick - much as happens with sports agents, literary agents, etc.

The art world is a vicious place. It makes the stock/banking industry look almost sedate in comparison.

I've only found a couple of online galleries with stuff for sale. I wish they would have more.

This is what I don't understand. Insisting a reproduction look like "real" art seems awfully similar to wearing fake Hermes ties. Why not get a print and be happy with it?

You can get some nice etchings by well-known artists fairly cheaply.

Some dada art (especially Kandinsky) is rather simple.

"There's an amazing website that makes oil painting from photo:
www.paintyourlife.com

It turns your picture to painting. There are beautiful samples online.

You only need to pay a 20% down payment and after a week you can see your own oil portrait online.

You can then ask for modifications if you want. I''ve ordered a painting for my wife for our anniversary and she just loved it."

Glad you guys enjoyed it. Everyone seems to like that site -- so nice to find something worthwhile and not senseless on the Web. BTW, dp, a Prof. originally sent it to me -- and in a discipline about as far from art as you can get (not the sciences, which I feel are very close to art, or ought to be). Regards, Huntsman

I'm thinking of getting three or four blank canvases and painting each a single solid color. The easiest way to achieve a smooth, untextured result is with spraypaint, right?

Proverbial friend of a friend has huge (by huge, I mean huge) canvasses of a single color each. They paid a fortune for them. But yes, spraypaint. Better out of a gun than a can, though this probably won't matter as much as , say, a car.
